Any transition serious enough to alter your definition of yourself will require not just small adjustments in your way of living, but also a full metamorphosis.
Do you feel overwhelmed by the changes happening in yourself or in others close to you?
Do you want to learn new skills and strategies to improve your overall well-being? If you are willing to be open, honest, and learn more about yourself, my approach could benefit you.
I see you.
I hear you.
I honor, acknowledge, and understand you.
Don’t we all want to be heard and understood?
I think we do. That’s why I take exactly that approach with my clients.
- New Parenting
- Marital Issues
- Recent Illness Diagnosis
- Spiritual Crisis
- Impending Death – of a Loved One or Self
Our bodies may age, but our souls are timeless.
Our bodies store the traumas that we have experienced. I will encourage you to listen to the messages, subtle and not so subtle, that you receive. We will work with the past issues and ‘transition’ you into a new healthier life.

- Midlife Services Coordinator
- Psychiatric Nursing

- Volunteer Sexual Assault Resource Agency and Shelter – Emergency Situations
As a board-certified Psychiatric/Clinical Nurse Specialist, I have gained practical knowledge in a variety of hospital, trauma, and care settings. I used my skills in in-patient, out-patient, and private practice settings.
While volunteering with the Sexual Assault Resource Agency and Shelter for Help in Emergency, I helped rape and assault victims transition from trauma back into normal life.
I have also volunteered in classrooms and worked on committees for preschool, elementary, middle, high schools, and college—helping with challenges faced by parents, teachers, school boards, and sports staffs.
As the mother of two now grown children, I’ve been through pregnancy on both sides – as one who experienced the joys and challenges of pregnancy and as a nurse assisting through the pregnancy and birthing processes. I’ve taught prenatal and postpartum exercise and childbirth classes, and acted as doula.

I’ve helped in clean-ups on local trails and rivers, because I believe that nature is important. I believe it is our responsibility to care for the world.
I strongly believe that nature has healing qualities. Don’t take my word for the power of nature. “Earthing,” the practice of using the earth’s energy or “surface electrons,” has been studied and proven to be an effective complement to traditional medicine.

My office has many plants, and I often go for walks with clients or meet at parks. I sometimes assign homework, asking that those I am working with go outside and make connections with nature. I offer Healing Touch (Energy Medicine) to those interested in experiencing that approach.
