Whenever you are feeling stressed, take 3 deep breaths by following these simple steps.
1. Sit on the edge of a chair, feet flat on the floor.
2. Place one hand on your lower back and the other on your abdomen, with 3 fingers below your navel.
3. As you breathe in, your abdomen should rise like a balloon inflating.
4. As you breathe out, your abdomen should fall like a balloon that is losing its air.
5. Repeat 3 times.

From an early age I had a passion about women’s matters. I realized that even more after finishing my MBA which was really not a good fit for me. I decided to go in the direction of counseling and helping people and now have 23 years of clinical experience.

While running my private practice to my surprise latent grief for my childhood family dog brought me a series of dreams. Writing about this beloved pet ended up being a healing journey including not just my stories, but client’s pet loss and even afterlife stories. This has led to my book, Life, Death, Dog: Between This Pet and the Next.

I’m committed to providing online therapy in Arizona and Washington. I’m passionate about creating positive changes in mind, body and spirit helping clients move forward with fewer emotional side effects.
