Welcome, I am glad you stopped by. I thought I would share a little bit about who I am and how I think…I love to write. Writing gives me freedom to speak – whether anyone listens or not, I get to say it. I find pleasure in writing children’s picture books, early readers, as well as, poetry. I study life, energy, nature, and things (that is vague on purpose)…and I enjoy thinking and creating…through drawing, designing, taking photos, and cooking.
I love to be outside: snowshoeing, hiking, bicycling, and kayaking…and driving, like that Sunday afternoon drive to “nowhere” where you “get lost” and then find your way back home.
In my profession, I am an integrative psychotherapist. Many ask what integrative psychotherapy is. Let me tell you what it means for me: I see the individual holographically as mind, body, and spirit. I believe in a quantum approach to healing; we are all energy, and energy is a part of all healing. I see my purpose as “being a healing coach”…holding space with the person for his/her own self-healing, offering guidance and integrating mind-body care to support the individual in coming to know who he/she truly is. We have a God-given knowing of who we are, but through experience, life, relationships, challenges, trauma, we lose that true knowing. My desire is to help others come back to their knowing. I have the privilege of working with children, teens, adults, and families. I also work specifically with trauma-related and attachment-based issues with both children and adults.
Most of all I am blessed to have you read this blog…please enjoy.
