Communication Consulting, Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator, CDWF-Candidate
My calling as a therapist began with the study of communication that has led to a career passion. I started as a speech therapist working with children helping parents and children strengthen their connection. I was readily drawn to study adult relational communication -- in intimate relationships, friendships, life conversations and then, psychotherapy found me. Now with over 25 years as a therapist and communication consultant I love collaborating with people to live more satisfying and healthy lives. To this day I remain fascinated by how we navigate connection with one another in so many essential life relationships. Another important part of my personal and professional growth has been the development of a life practice of meditation and mindfulness. I can say that I am definitely steeped in both Eastern and Western perspectives of change. I love fusing various life perspectives with practical strategies and compassionate guidance to offer my clients a profound opportunity to create a joyous life -- not just to resolve old patterns of fear and dis-ease, but to bring the power of their authentic self to their work, their relationships and their life. Simply put, it's what I call a living wholeheartedly, which I believe is our true nature even if it feels like we're alone or have taken a side road! That's where we can work together.

I recently moved from Seattle, Washington to relocate to Boulder ,Colorado area. The Front Range offers so many opportunites to expereince nature. I enjoy activities with my Tibetan Terrier dog, dancing and yoga while pursuing interests in meditation, art, writing, poetry and photography, and listening to jazz.
I feel grateful I get to do the work I love and that I feel I was meant to do. I get to help people wherever they are on their journey, and wherever they live. I love having the opportunity to meet all kinds of people around the world and their unique approaches to being human. Many of us it seems we are in a vortex of change these days, both personally and globally. This can seem unsettling and yet is such a great opportunity to develop new strengths and awaken to the life we desire. I appreciate the opportunity to be of service during this time.
