About

Emergence into adulthood is a time of self discovery and change which can feel overwhelming, stressful and confusing. Figuring out who you are and what you want can feel unattainable when struggling under the weight of limiting beliefs about yourself and other's expectations of you. You may be looking for freedom from the constraints of pressure and anxiety, but familiar coping mechanisms are no longer working. You might be questioning your sexuality or gender, trying to make sense of difficult life events and accompanying feelings, or struggling with relationships. Whatever obstacle you are facing, I'm here to help you through.
With over 25 years experience, I am skilled in the use of complementary therapeutic approaches and techniques to help with symptom relief, as well as working with the subconscious mind to create deep internal shifts in the way that you relate to yourself, others and Life. For those who are interested, I am a Certified EMDR Therapist.
I love collaborating with college students and young professionals, because the work we do together now, not only eases the transition to adulthood, but sets the stage for a future where you are free to be, and live into, the life you're meant to live!
