About

I am particularly skilled with helping clients work through relational problems. One of the challenges I help clients work through is when one is in a relationship with another presenting with Narcissistic traits. When a client comes to me thinking something is wrong with them after being in such a toxic and emotionally abusive relationship, I help them find themselves again and realize they are not to blame. Helping clients understand they do not deserve to be treated like that is a way I feel most helpful.
My specialty is with systemic relational problems. I am taught that symptoms are a direct response to the system we find ourselves in from birth to present. I help clients understand systemic influences from their family of origin and if present, break the cycle of dysfunction while liberating them from their past.
My passion is helping people look at their life in a different way. Someone who has blamed themselves for failed relationships will carry around a lot of sorrow and guilt. I help clients be in the present, find strengths they have always had, and regain the happiness they strive for.
