About me

Occupation Marriage Family Therapist, Certified Clinical Guided Imagery & Hypnosis Therapist
Location Laguna Niguel, California
Introduction Much of what follows will sound like my resume. The truth of the matter is my life's work is my life. I live and work in California. I've been a licensed psychotherapist since 1986, specializing in treating individuals with life altering conditons. The irony is I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1996. It's been a difficult journey. I hope this blog will help others find a voice for their life altering conditions One of my passions is teaching. I am a senior faculty member for The Academy for Guided Imagery.Since 1989 I've taught hundreds of healthcare professionals how to use Interactive Guided Imagery(sm) for health & wellness. I also teach Therapeutic Creative Expression workshops - painting, creative journaling, mask painting - and self hypnosis. In 2006 & 2007 I was honored by the National Fibromyalgia Association as one of 35 people in the United States to be a "Leader Against Pain. I use Therapeutic Creative Expression, self hypnosis and Guided Imagery in my own journey with fibromyalgia to lead as productive a life possible.
