“I love to help women regain authentic joy and feel like themselves again.”

I am honored to help women develop self-compassion through difficult times and I strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment in which they can create healthy meaning out of significant and challenging life events. The counseling experience is a partnership that thrives on honesty, openness, and willingness to follow through. Like in other relationships, the real magic and healing comes from full participation. Counseling should increase your sense of worth, make you feel more comfortable in your own skin, and boost motivation. I invite you to make an appointment and take the first step in creating positive change.

I first came to Alaska in 1993 as a naturalist/tour guide and quickly discovered the power of this amazing place. I’m inspired by Alaskans’ sense of community, social responsibility and adventure. I enjoy sea kayaking, plien-air painting, and hiking Alaska’s beautiful wilderness.
