Our inner world is the most precious thing we have. Creating space and time to honor your psycho-spiritual health is honorable. I meet clients where they are, with unconditional presence and support. Grief needs space to breath, be seen, heard and in time, transformed. I offer a warm, nonjudgmental atmosphere that honors the strength found in your vulnerability and the time it takes to unfold. Transformation and healing becomes available when we're open to witnessing all of our selves. I look forward to meeting you.

Dealing with life while trying to figure out who you are, what you want, and how to get there can seem impossible. This may feel familiar if you are a college student, a young/new professional, or just trying to figure out adulting. Nothing seems to be working, and you're out of new things to try. Maybe you wonder if you're broken inside because of what you’ve been through- things you’ve been afraid to talk about, for fear of being judged or misunderstood. You often feel sad, scared, confused, angry, or empty, and you don’t know why. You worry that your job or relationships are not as meaningful as you want them to be.
