Going through a break-up or looking to be more satisfied with your life? I specialize in working with adults struggling with relationship uncertainty, recovery from a break-up/divorce, self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. Typical clients I work great with are people that feel they should be at a different place in their life then where they are, are wanting to gain a better sense of who they are and what they want, wanting to increase self-esteem and confidence and reduce anxiety and depression, and express wanting to just "feel happier".

I greatly value self-growth and will help you positively shift your life! I have a thorough and compassionate understanding of anxiety and depression and the positive aspects and struggles of relationships and the single life-style. We will work to ease distressing experiences and emotions, increase insight and coping, and help you find resolution.

I work with clients in a collaborative, genuine, strength based and productive manner. I take the time to understand what brings you in and what you want to work on. It's important to me that you feel comfortable and connected so we can build a positive working relationship where growth and change can occur. (*I'm also a certified Reiki Master)
