Hi, I'm Dianne!
I see each individual as a person with birthright gifts of wholeness, wellness, integrity and hope. Sometimes, people need support to find a path back to these gifts when life transitions, mental health challenges, grief or trauma have happened. I create a warm, comforting yet dynamic partnership with my clients to help them redefine their road to a full life.
You will know when you are ready to start on this path.
“Emerging Wholeness” welcomes all of who you are, and all you are learning to be as you navigate your life, build resiliency and rediscover your joy.
