We want to live joyful, peaceful, and connected lives, but most of us are carrying old mental and emotional patterns that need healing. These patterns may come up in inconvenient and unpleasant ways in our relationships (as anger, worry, or controlling behavior, for example) or be pushed down into our bodies (where they may show up as pain and discomfort, illness, unhealthy choices with food or other substances).
Individual counseling, including a combination of deep listening, mindfulness and meditation, emotional practices, and flower essence therapy, can shift stubborn patterns and help you to experience more freedom, joy, and connection.
Children, Teens, & Families
When children and teens suffer from anxiety, anger, behavior issues, social disconnection, and other emotionally-related problems, they need developmentally-appropriate support rather than watered down adult tools. To help young people truly feel their emotions and heal, we can offer playful and creative mindful practices, art and movement activities, practical skill-building, flower essence therapy, and the space to talk and be truly heard.
Support for young people includes with parents! Because a child's most important relationships are with their parents, child-focused counseling supports the parent-child relationship. When working with young people, I also consult and work directly with parents, listening deeply to what's happening in the family to discern the best approach, teaching simple but often counter-intuitive parenting approaches, and coaching parents in how to create helpful changes in the child's world.

Flower essences are natural, vibrational remedies that help us to reconnect with the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health that is a part of our true selves. Along with counseling and mindfulness, flower essences can help to clear old patterns and remind us of who we are. Visit this page for more information about my work with flower essences.
