“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves..." Rainer Maria Rilke

Welcome and thank you for checking out my website!

I imagine that you have questions. Maybe you are wondering: How do I manage all this stress and fear? How do I take care of myself and others? How do I live my most meaningful life in such a rapidly shifting landscape? How do I shed the things that are not working for me, and, ultimately, become more me? Maybe you want to figure out how to bring your unique self forward to be of service to your community or beyond.

The world needs you; your unique strengths, your vision, and your action. Your presence matters.

Whether you are here to find answers or to take a deep dive into your own interior landscape, I offer a caring, open space to explore your questions, longings and relationships. I bring my full self to work- my nearly 30 years of experience as a therapist, my vision and inspiration as an ICF accredited coach, and my perspective developed from both personal and professional experiences as a professor, researcher, mindfulness student and instructor. I am a located on the shoreline of Connecticut and am licensed in both Connecticut and New York. I provide remote and in person sessions.

I'm happy you are here and hope you find what you are looking for. If not, send me an email and let me know what you're seeking. Perhaps I can help point you in another direction.

Wondering if we'd be a good fit? Give me a call or send an email.

Until then, keep breathing and offering compassion to yourself and the world.  May you know you are not alone. May you feel connected and grounded.
