I am a spiritual mentor, with over thirty years of experience working with individuals and families. I draw on my extensive studies and practice of Buddhism, mindfulness, yoga, Judaism, and other mystical traditions to listen to, guide, and nurture individuals, couples, and groups seeking to grow and to heal.
My goal is to help create a safe environment so all people can heal – gently noticing where you are ready to let go of old habits, stories, and beliefs and create a more mindful and enthusiastic life path. I have an optimistic and expansive view of life and listen to each individual’s story with an open mind and non-judgmental attitude.
Our work seeks to identify, move towards, and integrate your soul’s purpose into your life experience.
If you are a parent, I aim to help you feel more positive about the amazing and challenging job of parenting and to deepen your ability to respond to your children’s unique qualities and needs.
I am currently a Visiting Mom and Visiting Mom Supervisor with the Center for Early Relationship Support/JF&CS. I worked for ten years as a daycare provider and postpartum doula, have two daughters (ages 22 and 27) and have worked extensively with new and experienced parents helping to articulate both practical and philosophical parenting tips. I have a background in homeschooling, adoption, and child development.

I look forward to meeting you!
