My Work

My work focuses on addictive diseases, disordered eating, mood and anxiety disorders and professional/work challenges. With 30 years experience in the business world, I have a unique perspective in helping those in challenging careers, stressful work environments and those who are questioning the work they are doing.

I believe that spirituality plays a significant role in the psychological, social and biological aspects of our lives.  Research supports the positive role of spirituality and the value of mindfulness based practices, and I want to help my clients become aware of and use these resources in their lives.
