About

We are ever changing, but yet always the same. I find purpose working with those who feel misunderstood or as outsiders in their own lives. I enjoy assisting couples with identifying the strengths in their unique differences and uncovering how opposite attractions create the dynamic passion between them, even if it’s passionate fighting in their current cycle. I aspire to provide adolescents the opportunity to be heard/seen by their parents as the wise beyond their years individuals they truly are, while also transitioning them out of the safety net their parents choose to provide for their success.
Through collaborative conversations and an eclectic therapeutic approach, I support individuals with reaching their chosen potential. Combining book knowledge, personal/shared experiences, as well as an intuitive core self I guide adolescents, adults, couples, and families on their journey through life’s challenges and lessons.
Each individual has their own perspectives, experiences, and situations, so I approach all based on their needs. No other person in this universe has walked in the same shoes, with the same influences, or seen through the same eyes as you have, so what works for a previous client or myself, may not work for the special person you are.
