Announcement icon Need support right now? I am here to help you navigate this time of high transition with easy to use video or phone sessions.
I provide individual and group therapy for adults navigating life transitions, coping with health challenges, and desiring to live more fully. Whether you are at the beginning, stuck in the messy middle, or yearning for closure, I am ready to work with you to achieve your goals. You don't have to know the answers. All you have to do is be willing to show up and believe that change is possible. Together, through inquiry and with curiosity, we will engage in a dynamic, collaborative process to achieve clarity and lasting change. I will help you take meaningful action in your life.
Due to planned/unplanned life events such as a health diagnosis or divorce you may feel out of sync, stuck, overwhelmed, lost and disconnected from yourself. You may be in a place where you're ready to dream, build and expand in your life. I help people reconnect to their truth and use life events as a catalyst for understanding, discovery, and growth.
I am direct, compassionate and utilize a creative, individualized approach that illuminates who you are and helps you discover what you need and want in order to feel better in your life. I will support you as you re/build trust in yourself. I will be fully present, ask the hard questions, and listen carefully. I offer welcoming and affirming space for all.
