I offer counseling/therapy and coaching for individuals and couples. I love helping people with relationship issues, encouraging them to embrace their emotions so they can successfully navigate life!
In addition to assisting people experiencing anxiety, panic, phobias, social anxiety, OCD, ADHD, ADD, and Bi-polar disorder, I have experience working with people around relationship issues (with partners or spouses, family, work life, dating, etc.), decluttering/organizing and simplicity, assertiveness, LGBTQ+, gender and sexuality issues, self-esteem, and attracting what you want in life. Experience working with folks who are on any part of the gender spectrum and am sex positive, poly and kink friendly, respecting all sexual orientations, relationships, and behaviors that are consensual and non-exploitive.
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."
Making art and tapping into the creative process can be a powerful way to express your thoughts and feelings. It can be calming, lead to focus and integrate polarities, as well as assist in expanding options and facilitating decision-making, risk-taking, and getting unstuck and clear. No previous art experience is needed!
As a Registered Board Certified Art Therapist (ATR-BC) and SoulCollage® Facilitator, I have seen time and time again how rewarding the creative process can be and that the experience is most often more important than the end product.
Hypnosis is a heightened state of awareness in which concentration becomes highly focused. In this relaxed, suggestive state the benefits can be accelerated learning and reduction in symptoms such as addictions, physical pain, debilitating mood or emotional patterns and reactions to trauma. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. The client is always in charge and I validate the fact that all the “answers” are within the client.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Art Therapist, Life and Relationship Coach, Voice Dialogue Facilitator, Soul Collage Facilitator, Certified Hypnotherapist.
My interest in visual arts and psychology led me to take many art classes and complete a Master’s degree in Psychology and a Post-Master’s Certification in Art Therapy. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, a Board Certified Registered Art Therapist, Life and Relationship Coach, SoulCollage® Facilitator, Voice Dialogue Facilitator and Certified Hypnotherapist.
Over the last 35 years in the mental health and teaching fields, I have worked in inpatient and outpatient mental health facilities, crisis intervention settings as well as been in private practice since 2005. I have taught children’s art classes, university and community college level classes as well as at language institutions in Germany teaching English as a Second Language. I have professional affiliations with the American Art Therapy Association, the Evergreen Art Therapy Association and the Seattle Counselors Association. Besides hiking, walking, partner dancing, sailing, kayaking and skiing, I enjoy painting and have shown my acrylic and collage work in galleries in Germany and the United States. I am interested in photography and video and have created a 30 minute documentary video about Art Therapy entitled “Art Saves Lives” and a 30 minute documentary video about the benefits of art-making entitled “Art Saves Lives Stories.”
My work often involves helping folks develop self-mastery or the ability to manage their feelings, thoughts and actions, develop effective and harmonious communication skills, reduce anxiety and experience more positive feelings and thoughts as well as simplify and organize their lives in order to enjoy life to the fullest. I particularly enjoy sailing, kayaking, snorkeling and spending time on the water in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of the USA and in warm waters around the world. I have dreams of one day crossing an ocean as well as traveling on the water in many parts of the world! Be sure and join my Newsletter Email List!
