WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
IDEAL Counseling Client ~ Someone who is READY and motivated to be more awake in their lives! Those who are seeking greater understanding and mastery in their lives.

IDEAL Mindfulness Client ~ A progressive company or organization that is looking for fresh and interesting ways to support its workforce by adding mindfulness to its existing wellness program. Programming can be specific to leadership, admin, labor,.. anyone can benefit from being more intentional and strengthening relational attunement. 

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR FIELD OF WORK?
My own wakeup call was the convergence of several life events,  allowing me to realize that I was the source for much of my suffering. Realizing my reactivity and judgments were keeping me from  what was REALLY important. 

WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE think THEY KNOW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
Mindful Meditation is for hippie-dippie types and requires one to denounce their values, stop their thinking and they will achieve enlightenment if they just breathe. Not exactly, research shows that by incorporating mindfulness based practices into one’s personal and professional life, they can: improve memory, decrease reactivity, and experience more compassion and gratitude (to name a few :-). All good stuff! 

What therapy IS NOT~Just chatting, to a stone faced, blank starring robot-like individual who just wants to "talk about your feelings." Therapy is truly about enhancing tools and resources that an individual already has to enhance resilience, improve emotional stability and experience greater contentment. 

NAME ONE THING THAT YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS?
That having an objective, honest and clinically trained individual (a therapist) in your corner is not the same as talking to your mother, friends or your hair dresser about your problems. Moving through difficult times with the support of a trained professional can be the difference between lasting suffering or greater contentment.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?
Despite the occupational hazards of being human, I am fortunate enough to witness the power of human resilience everyday.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE STARTING OUT IN YOUR INDUSTRY?
Invite feedback and advice from mentors who are honest about their successes as well as their failures.

WHAT IS THE ONE BOOK THAT YOU THINK I SHOULD READ RIGHT NOW?
Wherever You Go, There You Are ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

ADDITIONAL NOTES:
Mindful Meditation ~ Many companies talk about mindfulness, but don't know WHAT and HOW to implement something that will work for them. I am always happy to discuss how mindfulness can be adapted for their needs and ultimately enhance the workplace.

Counseling ~ Free 15-minute phone consultations available to discuss questions prior to scheduling an appointment. This is a great way to determine fit and ease any anxiety that may exist prior to that 1st appointment.
