Personal Statement about Training Program:
I work with people of all ages and from all walks of life with enthusiasm and joy. Working one-on-one, I help you to listen deeply to whatever is wanting your attention, to develop your presence, and to support your process of releasing what feels stuck, out-of-whack, and off-balance so you can open to what you really want and who you truly are.

I also teach Focusing to all kinds of groups. Learning Focusing is transformative. It provides the information, process, and practice that support your Focusing either solo or in partnership with another person. When you learn Focusing, you can be with what is here, right now, with curiosity and empathy. You can stay in connection and build relationship with what is circular, unpleasant, and difficult giving it time and space to open to what is flowing, creative, and just right for you.

A Sample of my Work:
