"We all bring our unique selves, our pasts, and family histories into our relationships. It can be a challenge to try and find balance and harmony with so many of these different factors interacting with each other and the relationship, often causing confusion and conflict. Whether you have lost the spark, are struggling through conflict and strain, are being impacted by childhood trauma and attachment concerns, or possibly you are hoping to strengthen an already strong connection. Whatever is happening within the relationship, family, or within yourself, together we can uncover new ways of interacting, communicating, and healing."

"Life feels overwhelming right now and you have no idea how to make it better. Every time you wander onto social media, you scroll through evidence that you're inadequate and broken. No matter what you do or where you are, you just want to be at home, on your couch because you're exhausted--physically and emotionally--and you wonder if life will always suck. I get it, you keep it bottled up inside and don't talk about it because you're worried no one will understand. You've tried opening up to people but it hasn't gone well and now you're all alone with the pain and shame. There's nothing wrong with you, something happened to you. "

"For most people, strong relationships are an important indicator of health and well-being. When we feel stuck in old patterns that no longer serve us, our connection to others suffers too, which can turn up as depression, anxiety, or simply feeling alone and disconnected. By reconnecting with our essential gifts and strengths through the therapy process, we in turn can offer more to family, friends, and community. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients and view them as the experts on their own experiences, and I understand therapy as a journey to the revelation of the authentic self at the heart of every person."
