“I believe each person, regardless of age, is in a perpetual state of becoming. Life is an ongoing process filled with unexpected detours and curveballs. I work with each client to explore his or her own process of becoming and the deeper explorations of how one lives his or her life. I encourage non-judgmental curiosity and openness to questioning as we reflect on one’s life path and define what it means to live a meaningful life. I support clients as they develop the courage to ask difficult questions and find the answers to these questions and other questions that they find life poses to them. Through the process, I reinforce the importance of patience and compassion for oneself as well as for others. I also encourage reflection on the effects patience and compassion have on your experience to allow you to live fully in the present moment.”
