Hello! I am a communication specialist, motivational mentor and empowerment coach.
I've been in practice over 30 years and began as a holistic psychotherapist, with adults and couples.


Two years ago, at the start of the pandemic, I created and introduced my online holistic learning center, Your Amazing Journey, where I teach live, interactive programs to women, that focus on personal development, Spiritual attunement and life transitions and transformation. 

While I continue to see new clients in my psychotherapy practice on a limited basis,  most of my work today is focused on providing motivational and empowerment coaching in individual sessions with adults and as part of my Women's Empowerment Incubator © program design.

Support for Your Journey

Personal development and empowerment groups offer an effective approach to helping you to heal, grow and transform using the power of group process to help make it possible. 


​Programs consist of open-ended  discussions that offer participants an opportunity to share experiences, get support  from others and enhance their perspective and decision-making, in a safe, healing atmosphere.

Wellness programs are offered on a variety of subjects including: 


                                               The Women's Empowerment Incubator

                                                Meditation: The Path to Emotional Freedom

                                                Great Ways to Manage Stress So It Won't Manage You

                                                The Courage to Change Your Mind- Transformational Retreat

                                                Conscious Communication: Becoming and Expert at
with Others for More Satisfying Relationships


In either a therapy or wellness group, support becomes an essential part of entering into the change process, learning to master new skills, to make better choices and improve the quality of one's life. Group members share their experience, with expert guidance, support and facilitation. 


Sharing is done one person at a time. Each member is guided to focus on themselves. Feedback is encouraged as long as it is respectful and constructive. Group members agree to respect and maintain confidentiality where personal stories and reflections are shared.
