I grew up with three siblings, a father who was an illustrator and an artist and a mother who was a social worker and very ‘practical.’ Guess I got some of both. As a child, I loved books, animals and anything creative.  As I grew up and followed a creative path, it became clear to me that despite facility in the areas of art and creativity, I wasn’t so good at standing up for myself or taking care of myself in relationship to others.   I found myself unable to be fully empowered and after a particularly difficult relationship, I entered a ‘dark night of the soul.’ Reevaluating my priorities, I began to focus on a variety of learnings, teachings, workshops, and therapy.  I wanted more than anything to have full ownership of myself, to be able to walk through the world without fear and in full possession of my value as a human and spiritual being.  As a result, my life has been focused on personal transformation and growth for many years. This focus has become what my life is about and is now what I continue to value and learn, as well as give back to the world. I have integrated the experiences I have gained navigating life’s challenges into my work – my clinical skills and my writing. I love the work of assisting others in moving from pain or frustration to greater empowerment, satisfying relationships, and joyful lives.
