"Compassion is knowing your darkness well enough to sit in the dark with others – it is a relationship of equals, not a relationship between the helper and the helped.” ~Pema Chödrön.****** We all need understanding and empathy in our lives to thrive. Empathic support is one of the services that I provide. I am here to listen without judgment, and offer honest support.****** I am also available for coaching. I specialize in interpersonal skills for all types of relationships, including skills for relating with one’s self. A process that I use in coaching is beneficial for both relationships and emotional well-being. From this coaching, you can expect an enhanced ability to…Have more fulfilling relationships for increased self-confidence…Connect more deeply with others and yourself...Experience a greater sense of self-worth and deeper self-acceptance…Communicate what matters to you in a way that is most likely to be heard...Be honest without triggering defensiveness...Handle criticism directed at you...Transform anger, depression, and guilt...

This is a communication model and worldview that has been used successfully around the world to help people to communicate more effectively, and to transform ways of thinking for deeper understanding and increased inner peace. I am available for teaching mindfulness as well. Research has demonstrated that mindfulness has many benefits for the mind and body. In addition to some of the benefits mentioned above, it has been shown to boost the immune system, and increase density of gray matter in brain regions linked to learning, memory, emotion regulation, and empathy.
