"Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard.

"This is another paradox: What is soft is strong."— Lao-Tzu

I have been helping people for over 25 years remake themselves and perform extraordinary feats in the fields of medicine, mental health, advocacy, and spiritual support. Time and again the resilience and creativity of human beings astounds me. You have so much more than you realize. Allow me to accompany you on your journey to your best self and help you find the solutions you seek.
