I Believe

I am also a certified life and relationship coach for singles who want to attract their soul mate into their lives like a magnet. In this separate practice, I work remotely as a coach by phone and ...

About Me

I love to watch people grow and change. To accept themselves and see themselves in a whole new way. I'm an experienced LCSW, Life and Cerified Relationship Coach for Singles who uses a holistic approach. If you've ever felt like you wanted to feel better about yourself and your life --achieve more, find more inner peace, let go of stress and worry, meet your soul mate or learn how to take better care of yourself if you're caring for an aging parent; you are not alone. I will help you to accept that where you are in this moment is where you are supposed to be. Whatever your history, the past has passed, it's your responsibility for what shows up in your life today. Once you've decided its time to let go of whatever or whomever no longer serves you; I 'll partner with you to discover the life / relationship you desire. Together, we'll co-create the rich and exciting journey that will inspire you to act in ways you haven't before, from the inside out. I've applied these concepts to my own life and practice myself what I bring to you -- meditative and creative tools, exercises and techniques that really work that I've learned from renown experts. I'm your guide, your teacher, your catalyst to discovering what's keeping you from the life you want. If you are ready to transform your life in a caring, honest and supportive helping relationship, let's see if we're a good fit to work together. I'll look foward to hearing from you.

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

It's an honor to serve others and I consider it a privilege to be given the opportunity to make a difference in people's lives.

Success Stories

See it Before You Can Be It

Most of us dream about a vague fantasy partner without having a clue about how we want to feel when we're with them. We dont have a clue about our relationship "MUST HAVES" and "DON"T WANTS." We might not own up to our values. We may have left over emotional baggage that needs packing up and shipping out. Maybe that and doing the same unconscious things over and over while expecting a different result--the very definition of craziness-- is the reason why your relationships fail.

You probably put more energy into making a shopping list than beomg clear about what you want from your next relationship .We allow others to choose us randomly, and when inevitably, that person turns out to be less that perfect, we set out to change them to fit our vague fantasy. In short, we end up disappointed.

One of my clients, an attractive, successful professional in her 30's, was unhappy with her past relationship choices. Together, we explored her relationship history, identified past patterns, and she practiced exercises each session that made her really imagine, think and acknowledge her true needs and desires.
She discovered she was kidding herself or rationalizing when she didn't look at major red flags that presented themselves on the rocky roads of her past relationships When the honeymoon phases of dating was over, she tried to change her partners instead of leaving and moving on. She didn't like this self-discovery. But she decided to face facts, stop trying to change her partners, and work on changing herself.

She didn't meet Mr. Right right away. But after 6 months of dating and coaching, and learning how to disengage quickly from people who weren't for her, enjoyed just being with friends, and detached from fears that she might wind up alone. That's when she met her soul mate who she is with today--over a year later.

She allowed him to show up in her life by setting her intention to make some changes, using vision work, meditiation, thought provoking homework exercises, and getting support from an experienced coach to make it all come together for her. She became happy with herself just as she was, and got rid of some old habits. She learned to let go of perfectionism and just enjoyed her life. And while she was relaxing and enjoying her new outlook, her soulmate appeared.

Do You Eat the Bear or Does The Bear Eat You?

You just left work 2 hours after you said you would and you're stuck in traffic that looks like the Santa Monica Freeway. Horns are blasting, you just swerved to miss a biker, and a truck tries to cut you off.
Your daughter in college just announced that she's planning to move back home with you, and your mother's just been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease.
You finally get off the highway and turn into the grocery store parking lot when the space you've been patiently waiting for disappears as some driver in an SUV as big as a stretch limo decides to pull in front of your car because she can.

You can deal with this stress on your own. You keep telling yourself that. But what if you knew that meditation, progressive relaxation, yoga, and guided imagery in addition to your regular workout routine has been proved to lower your heart rate, help you focus better, give you more energy and peace of mind?

When you're stressed, your muscles tense. It's harder to remember things, to retain and assimilate information.
Your work suffers, and so do you relationships. And life's supposed to be enjoyed, right? You get this one time only chance to live it and love it. So what can you do?
