Personal Statement:

After receiving my Masters Degree, I had what some would think of as an unfortunate task to commute 3.5 hours a day to my job as a counselor in NYC.  But I discovered the greatest use of my time and used the opportunity to read hundreds of books a year in the area of psychology, self-help, nutrition, energy medicine, spirituality and other related areas. That reading time was a gift that allowed me to learn the most cutting edge and amazing research to see the viewpoint of some of the greatest writers and thinkers, and how they view and solve human dilemmas. From this diverse BIG picture, I’ve found the most meaningful and effective methods to empower you to feel heartfelt relief by bringing integrity and meaning and rediscovered happiness into your life.


While I offer my services as a Counselor, and Coach, in the state of California unfortunately, there is no licensing available.  I have permanent counselor’s certification in NY State. However, under Sections 2053.5 and 2053.6 of California’s Business and Professions Code I am able to offer you my expertise and professional service.
