Growth & healing is my life-passion...
Transformation for myself and others has been a life-long goal. Life journeys are rarely straight lines without unexpected curves, bumps & challenges.
Many paths have enriched my life, bringing me to this present moment. I've healed emotional wounds & overcome physical challenges. I've been a cook, nutritionist, educator & mental health counselor. I've worked in hospitals, churches, shelters, group homes, a meditation center & mental health agencies. I've worked with hospice patients & their families, the chronically mentally ill & those experiencing family violence of all types.
Much of my work has been about being with people & their pain. There are those who would describe me as a wounded healer. I know the healing process intimately from the inside & the outside. You can be assured that I never ask clients to venture where I'm not willing to go myself.
I have been married for over 25 years to a husband who is my soul mate. Our daughter is in medical school & we're liking the empty nest opportunities. I am at home in kitchens, gardens, art galleries & hardware stores. I enjoy nature--particularly the desert, mountains & the ocean. I am an artist & life-long learner & I am thrilled to be engaging the second half of life.
