I personally grew up in an environment that was very unsupportive emotionally. In the course of healing my own wounds and building my own toolbox of life skills, I developed an ability to understand other people’s pain and to see where they are stuck.

My goal is to support you in getting where you need to go. I view myself as potentially a mirror, sounding board, guide, emotional support, teacher, trainer, co-strategist and coach for you. It all depends on what will meet your needs.
