and Life Coach, it is my greatest desire and intention to be
a catalyst and a simulater to people's search for meaning and
their quest for peace within. I have tremendous belief
in the power and resources of the human spirit and I trust each
individual's ability to conquer issues which hold them back from
becoming all they can be. My intention is always to create
a safe and respectful space for exploration and healing on all
levels or our humanness. It has been said about me that I come
from the heart and shoot from the hip.
Body Centered Psychotherapy
I spent sixteen years as a Psychotherapist in private practice, continuing
my education and training along the way. I had this knowing that
something vital was missing in my efforts to help heal and integrate
the human system. Then I stumbled upon Core Energetics - I
knew I'd found the missing piece. Core Energetics does not
separate and specialize in only one level of the human system,
but rather takes into account and works to unify all levels of
the human system. There are five distinct yet connected levels of
consciousness - the body, the emotions, the mind, the will,
and the spirit.
Drawing from Reichian concepts, Bioenergetics
(founded by John Pierrakos, MD and Alexander Lowen, MD),
insights from modern physics, and other physical, mental, and
spiritual teachings, Core Energetics moves beyond traditional
psychotherapies and works to remove energy blocks which inhibit
our true and complete evolution as individuals. I have completed
an intensive four-year training in Core Energetics.

Weddings, baptisms, dedications, funerals - each designed specifically
according to the occasion, the personalities, preferences, and
desires of the people involved.
On a personal level, I view my ministry as an ongoing opportunity
to increase faith, trust, and love in our world, our individual
selves and in a Higher Power.
I see and feel a need to build a bridge between Psychology
and its emphasis on claiming the self, and Spirituality and its
emphasis on surrendering the self. I don't experience these two
as opposites, as they appear. In the big picture of wholeness,
both are required and can be attained.

It is always my hope that every person in any group will gain
a new piece of learning that will add to their awareness and
create a new seed for their individual growth and process, whatever
that might be.
Each class, workshop, or seminar is newly designed according
to the group needs and the subject matter to be conveyed, and
always flexible enough to accommodate what needs to happen in

me a call. I look forward to creating new life opportunities
