You work, pay bills, socialize, maybe exercise (or not) and wake up to do it all over again. There is more to life than running the “rat race”. If you are starting to question your values, your thought processes, even your choices because you know there is more; Let’s dig a little deeper. Let us take a journey in your life by going back to childhood experiences that have shaped you or at the minimum, had some effect on your current position in life. Addressing personal, relational, and professional issues can be difficult but from the famous saying “whether you believe that you can or cannot you are right.”

It feels as though our lives have transitioned overnight due to current events. This time can be especially challenging if you were already in the midst of a life transition. Whether you just had a new baby, recently got married or divorced, love someone struggling with addiction, or went through a traumatic event; a sexual assault, medical crisis or are in the grieving process, I can offer support and expertise. I'm especially seasoned in working with trauma and helping folks navigate their interpersonal relationships and relationship to self. Collaboration, awareness, and transformation are key components to my therapy practice.

Happiness in life is dependent upon relationships - the relationship with yourself, your partner, your children - and the other significant, albeit difficult, people in your life. The bulk of my practice has focused on this very specialized area of interacting with other people. Whether doing discernment counseling with a couple contemplating divorce, working with couples to discuss and workout seemingly intractable issues----as well as mediation services for divorcing couples, relationships are the foundation of contentment and I have experienced a great deal of success with clients in this area.
