I emphasize the significance of incremental progress, and encourage a mindset of curiosity and experimentation.
I maintain an inclusive, affirming approach that honors human dignity and values diversity. I have worked professionally in communities of color, with people of faith, as well as with individuals and couples who identify as LGBTQIA+.
Through my training and over 20 years of professional experience, I recognize the impact of institutionalized and systemic discrimination, oppression and exclusion on mental, emotional, social, physical, spiritual, professional, and financial wellbeing.
You don’t need an escape hatch. It’s time. Meet yourself right where you are. Just like your clients or patients, you deserve every opportunity to attend to your own needs. You can have a thriving career AND experience all the contentment, harmony and ease you are seeking.

I am a national board certified health & wellness coach oriented around a whole-person-centered approach to wellbeing. I recognize the interrelatedness of mind, body, spirit, emotions, relationships, environment, career and beyond.
I use an empowering and clarifying range of approaches to help you identify and achieve YOUR vision, goals and priorities. I appreciate the individuality of each client, and use customized, nuanced strategies that are aligned with YOUR needs and reality.
I have experience working with social workers, mental health and other helping professionals from all disciplines and at all stages of career. As a clinician for over 20 years and leader in the field of mental health for over 15 years, I deeply understand the impact of stress, burnout, and overwork that therapists and leaders in mental health and other helping professions can experience.
I attribute my own hard-won wellbeing to the work I’ve invested to align my values, personal development habits, routines and mindsets, with an emphasis on mindfulness, self-compassion, and curiosity. I enjoy time in nature, time with friends and family, and opportunities to grow and expand.
