Perhaps you’ve given so much of yourself to your children, your spouse, or your job that by the end of the day you find yourself frazzled, irritable, and exhausted. You might even wonder how you’ll muster the energy to do it all over again tomorrow. Have those same life distractions negatively impacted your relationship? Are you feeling alone and disconnected from your partner; more like roommates than lovers and friends? Or maybe you’re dealing with a difficult transition, and you’re not sure if/how you can feel better and move forward.

As a wife & mother of three small children, I understand the unique pressures that modern relationships & parenting bring. I am adept at helping both individuals & couples navigate their journeys through major life difficulties/transitions. I believe in a mind/body approach to wellness and am passionate about helping individuals and couples in our community.

As the old proverb goes, “you can’t pour from an empty cup.” If this is resonating with you, it’s time to take that first brave step into self-care. You owe it to yourself, your spouse, and your family. With the right tools, you will have the power to radically change your outlook and your life, for the better. I can’t wait to help you reinvest in yourself.
