"Life is full of transitions: starting and ending relationships, changing residences, shifting the way we see ourselves and relate to our life situations can all create challenges which, at times, may feel overwhelming. Enlisting the support of an objective person who can assist us in coming to terms with the unresolved issues we face, or find new ways of seeing and being with our reality as it is, can help. I would be honored to work with you and explore the difficulties you are facing."

"Binaries can be stifling. Suffocating. Living in a world with prescribed ideals, roles, presentations and expectations is exhausting, terrifying and lonely. Maybe you’ve always known that something about you doesn’t quite fit the within the strict confines and regulations of gender and sexuality in our society. Maybe you’re just now starting to question things, or feeling confused and overwhelmed about your gender experiences, sexuality and identity. Maybe you’ve struggled for a long time with other issues (mood, anxiety, relationships, substances, trauma) that intersect with your gender & sexuality. If so, I’m here to help. "

"I believe that we live in challenging times. Many people find it difficult to feel confident and self assured, have peaceful, fulfilling relationships, navigate the demands of finances, family, work and home, and also focus on nourishing self care. These challenges are interconnected. They are related to how we have developed our sense of self in the context of family expectations and experiences, societal demands, cultural assumptions, and media influence. It is necessary for all of us to learn how to live our best lives in these particular circumstances. You are not alone."

"Entering into counseling takes both courage and vulnerability. I treat adults and children with trauma/anxiety and or substance use disorders. The approach that I use is one of trust and mutual respect, believing that every person has within them everything they need to grow and learn in life. Identifying and drawing forth those skills and strengths as well as an action plan for change is crucial for problem resolution. My approach in counseling is holistic as is my approach to self-healing, working with body, mind, and Spirit. They are truly connected. Working with any one area will impact the others."

"Imagine having the opportunity to create the life that you want, where anything is possible, there are no limits or barriers, and it is created by you. Now imagine doing it! Addiction and trauma rob us of the ability to address underlying issues that contribute to self-medicating. Recovery, growth, and change can be challenging, yet so healing and rewarding. I work from a compassionate, non-judgmental perspective to help you uncover your deepest healing potential. I believe we all have the inherent wisdom to create change in our lives.

"Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed."

" I believe we are born innately good, creative and self-actualizing. Through traumatic experience (especially relational and cultural) we can learn to doubt and discount our own truth and inner sensings. When we don’t feel safe inside it is hard to really land and step into our destiny and deepest empowered values. I specialize in helping survivors of trauma (particularly of sexual violence) learn to feel safe again. Once we can access a sense of safety in our system we can start to remember how to know, honor and trust ourselves for greater ease and life fulfillment."
