"For over 20 years I have been honored to have the opportunity to help many reveal their genuine selves, deepen their connection to others and walk bravely and confidently through life. It is the bravest that seek counseling and whatever it is you are struggling with, this too shall pass! One of the biggest hurtles to getting where we want to be in life are the thoughts and beliefs we hold about ourselves. Most of the time, we don’t even know those thoughts are present and causing problems! The good news is, we can take control of those thoughts and get unstuck where we feel stuck. Currently, I practice online through Betterhelp."

"People often seek therapy when they sense that their lives could be bigger - when they feel limited by old patterns, beliefs and behaviors. We all share the human need for freedom. I help people address their inner barriers to living the expansive lives they imagine possible. The core of my style is a deep respect for each individual's unique process. Clients I've worked with have reported benefits such as experiencing more joy; greater inner peace and wellbeing; more satisfying relationships; a deeper sense of connection with others; more effective communication; enhanced creativity; and greater self confidence."

"Could you use more support in dealing with life's challenges? Life can be painful for a variety of reasons. Some of the pain can not be avoided but therapy can be a place to bear witness to pain, honor it fully, and through time, emerge with the strength, and wisdom that comes from fully experiencing what is. Other times, we sense that we are suffering unnessessarily and stuck in repetitive and unhealthy patterns but can't seem to find our way out. Therapy can assist in helping to explore these patterns and finding ways to break free of them."
