As a licensed clinical psychologist for 20+ years, I understand that the relationship and "fit" between client and therapist is paramount. I work hard to establish and maintain a relationship based on mutual trust and honesty. We can work together to help you feel less stuck, and more in control.
"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power. Everyone wants to feel content and satisfied with themselves and the world they build around them but we struggle to achieve this goal because we have been hurt, disappointed, betrayed, or doubt ourselves. Find your personal power and change your world. I am with you.

Therapy is a partnership between you and your therapist. You work together to find the causes of problems, as well as create solutions and strategies for resolving them. You end up with peace of mind and the ability to reconnect with the people close to you.
Life is really hard. If you are a teen (11-17) or young adult (18-29), life can be even harder. From school to finances, to friends to family… the pressure just keeps growing. And these pressures? Well, they can make you feel worried, anxious, or even alone. But you don’t have to feel this way.
It’s my belief and experience that among all of our deepest desires is the longing to be fully seen, validated, and loved, when all the masks are taken away – for who we truly and authentically are. I view the role of therapist or life coach as the mirror that reflects the light within. In our darkest hours, it can be difficult to see ourselves clearly, to find the path hidden in the seemingly impenetrable forest of grief, despair, anger, or loneliness.
I believe that no one is broken. We have all learned strategies to survive as best we could. Therefore, we can learn new strategies and alter our lives so that we can thrive. As a psychotherapist, writer, and life coach, I have worked for the past 40 years in both Australia and America. I was a director of a Family Therapy Program in Sydney, Australia, and later worked with the Family Institute at Northwestern University. My belief is that the only thing that is wrong is what we've been taught to think and believe about ourselves that stop us from being our true selves. Therefore, my goal is to empower clients to be the hero or heroine to face adversity, overcome anxiety, and create empowering stories that lead to healthier relationships. I am the author of "The Roadmap Home: Your GPS to Inner Peace" an Amazon bestseller and "Fighting for Love: Turn Conflict into Intimacy," coauthored with Mari Frank.
My practice started in Hawaii and since then I have moved to Florida. I bring the isles to the mainland and provide therapy in many manners. I am 63 years old and have lived all over the USA. I had heard it all and do not get excited nor afraid of anything I hear. I understand and give love to all.
