About

Are you searching for a sense of purpose, to better understand or be understood by others? Are you looking for support in making decisions more aligned with your values? I utilize an integrative counseling style tailored to your unique needs, providing the opportunity for you to tap into your strengths. Insight gained may provide you the opportunity to manage stressors and to make self driven choices in a balanced manner. Approaching life's most difficult challenges in a confidential way may allow you to work towards your goals, providing you the opportunity to safely delve into your relationship struggles.
I welcome the exploration of concerns with sociability, isolation, under/over achievement, relational dynamics, self-acceptance, transitions, loneliness, growth, worry, low-frustration tolerance, and peer concerns. With the creation of a confidential space, exploring trauma, complicated family events and grief is comfortable and safe.
I enjoy working with individuals, children, adolescence, couples and families with a practice that is inclusive of lifespan, economic, educational, gender, and cultural diversity. I am also available for clinical supervision in support of those who hold an AMFT license with the BBS.
