About Me: 

From the time I was a young child losing my parents and family and being raised in the foster care system taught me that adversity could either make or break me and that change is the only unchanging variable in life. Now I am a social psychologist with over 20 years experience working with diverse populations promoting human potential and change. Working with my personal life myth has been integral to discovering my own potential and facilitating the change in my life.
I am currently working with private clients helping them use their life myth to facilitate the experience of being alive and inform their relationships. Drawing on Process Work and cutting edge research that explores dreams, memorable events and indigenous ways of knowing I am working to help people creating meaningful ways of life and relationship.
