About Me

No matter what you're going through right now, I believe your life and your relationships have the potential of getting so much better - and relatively soon. I know that it sometimes takes courage to take that first step in seeking help, and I congratulate you for being here!

I believe that my primary job is to help you find clarity about the life you want, and to work with you to discover the right tools that work best to get you there. Most importantly, I want to help you realize that it's all possible. After working in this field for over 25 years, and spending my life gathering the most powerful, life-changing tools available, it never ceases to amaze me how quickly and efficiently we are able to turn our lives and our relationships around once we know how, and once we have the support we need.

I’ve worked with hundreds of individuals and couples over the past 25 years. And although their issues and personalities are always unique, they all seem to share similar hopes and dreams: To have satisfying and fulfilling relationships . . . to feel respected, appreciated and understood by the people who matter most in their lives. And most importantly, to fully love and accept themselves!

Often, it’s a matter of learning how to let go of the past in order to create a fresh new future, while making the most of this present moment. Often, it’s a matter of learning how to speak your partner’s language so that you can both feel heard. Sometimes it’s a matter of understanding and accepting the differences between innate male and female traits and characteristics. I’ve had the privilege of watching couples who have been drifting further and further apart for many years, as they have turned their relationships around to find love, trust and connectedness like they’ve never experienced before.

Please know that the very most important gift you can give yourself and to those you love is your own happiness! My work will be to support you in transforming your life and your relationships into what you see as your highest and best good.

I would consider it an honor and a privilege to work with you in finding the peace and happiness that you and your loved ones deserve.

Emma is excellent, there aren’t enough words to express how highly I think of her.
