About

Feeling overwhelmed? Tired of situations/outcomes not meeting your expectations? Burdened by the stress of a life that you thought you wanted while also questioning decisions about work, family & love? In order to bring positive change into ones life, you must first provide a safe and secure environment for one to reflect on their life. I take great pride in providing that environment. Someone did that for me and it transformed my life. It would be privilege to do the same for you.
I know the power of therapy when you connect with the right person, learn to let go of what doesn’t serve you well and expand on what does. Deemed as relatable, compassionate and direct by my clients, my treatment areas include grief and loss, caregiver support, women's issues, trauma and managing & coping with a chronic illness.
I have a deep curiosity in the human condition and the stories of my clients. With experience in complex life transitions, medical social work, palliative care, both in hospice and my own father's journey with dementia, I bring a unique set of skills to whole heartedly guide clients through the most challenging of circumstances and transform their lives.
