“As Carl Jung repeatedly declared, our goal is wholeness, not perfection. People living soulfully are not untroubled or unchallenged. They are not beyond experiencing times of confusion, mistakes, and tragedies. They have by no means healed all their wounds. They are simply on a path to wholeness, to becoming fully human- with all the inevitable defects and distresses inherent in any human story and with all the promise held by our uniquely human imagination.”
― Bill Plotkin

Although I have a degree in Social Work, most of my training has come from many years of taking classes from some of the brightest luminaries out there, as well as struggling through the School of Hard Knocks. I don't have all the answers, but I've asked a lot of questions and it is my greatest joy to support others in doing the same.
In addition to raising 3 daughters and completing a 30-year social work career, I have been on a 40-year quest to discover my true soul nature, beyond the addictions and traumas that are too often a part of the human life. The search has taken me to the Riso-Hudson Institute in NY to train on the Enneagram, as well as into many deep dives on-line with various teachers, and also soulcraft excursions in nature with Bill Plotkin.
Teachers and mentors who call us to wholeness, rather than perfection, are the ones I resonate with. My favorites are Richard Rohr, Thomas Moore, Russ Hudson, Bill Plotkin, Craig Hamilton, Claire Zammit, Jeff Carreira, Richard Rudd (Gene Keys), Rudolf Steiner, A.H. Almaas, and the ancient mystics. I also practice the 12-Steps and daily meditation.
I am happy to have a conversation with you about what is emerging in your life, or discovering what is keeping you feeling stuck. I can also help you find your Enneagram type and meet with you for individual coaching sessions.
I work with a co-facilitor to offer groups in Self Compassion, Real Love, and Living from the Power of Your Heart. The groups meet weekly for 90 minutes for about 6-10 weeks. The sessions include a short teaching, journaling exercises, and group processing.
Along with a co-leader, I offer 6-hour workshops on Experiencing the Enneagram and Self Empowerment. We also have shorter overview presentations on the Enneagram, Self Compassion, or Living from the Power of Your Heart to help you discover if a workshop is right for you.
