I teach people how to pay attention and value the wisdom of their emotions, behaviors and thoughts so they can navigate their personal and professional life in a compassionate way that encourages healthy behavior and caring relationships. I offer individual and family therapy, as well as, consultations to health care providers and family owned businesses.
