"The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives." - Esther Perel
Create a Life Worth Living
Life comes with relationships, and the first and non-negotiable rule of life and relationships is that we only get to play our side, no matter how well-meaning we may be. Accepting that can put us on a path to more fulfilling relationships and a more rewarding life.
Skills to improve relationships can be learned. If you chose to work with me, we will begin by examining the effectiveness of your relationships to this point. We will celebrate your strengths and successes and search for areas needing improvement. Much like an athlete improving their game, you will learn how to change habits and behaviors that no longer serve you.
You can expect compassion, understanding and commitment from me. I look for humility, honesty and a desire to risk the discomfort of trying a different approach from you. Trying new things feels odd at first, but the results are so worth it. You will improve to the degree you are willing to practice.
You may have noticed that the entire focus of my approach is on you, the client, and not on the person who is causing you grief. That's because the only way to successfully change our relationship with anyone, is to change our relationship with ourselves. When we change, everything changes.
If you're in the pain of divorce, there is hope. Suffering is temporary while opportunities are endless. Grieve the loss and look forward to a new beginning. It is possible to do both.
Divorce is a punch to the gut like no other. Betrayal, disappointment, loss of trust, abandonment and the terror of starting over. It can feel like falling off a cliff and believing you're going to die...or possibly wishing you could.
Well-meaning family and friends can't always help, no matter how much they want to. When you find you need help, the bravest thing you can do is to reach for it.
If you're facing any kind of life transition, I can support you and help you find your way.
You are Not Alone
My goal is to help you move forward into a life worth living. We don't get to choose what happens to us, but we have all the power when it comes to what we do as a result. I will work with you to help you find compassion for yourself and others, especially any children that are impacted by these changes. Compassion is the first step in recovery from pain.
It is possible to survive divorce and breakups and come out stronger and with dignity and respect for all.
How we treat one another creates the world we live in.
Reaching for Help is the Bravest Thing You Can Do
Support That Makes a Difference
If you're hurting, I can help. You just have to take the first step.
Survive the Pain
Self-Compassion is the Beginning of Healing
Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond. Drop the rock of blame and move forward into the power of compassion, acceptance and empowerment.
Build More Meaningful Connections
We Cannot Survive Alone
It's not always possible to remove former partners from our lives, especially when there are children involved. Learn how to establish healthier connections with everyone in your life.

Every Ending is a New Beginning
Embrace the possibility of a new beginning. Build your new life with creativity and intention. There is a brighter day ahead, you just have to reach for it.
Life is not a dress rehearsal. - Rose Tremain
