I create collaborative partnerships with individuals, couples, and families facing diverse challenges. In a warm and supportive environment, I work with clients to explore obstacles, consider alternative perspectives, and discover inner strengths. Whether you're navigating personal anxieties, navigating tricky relationship dynamics, or facing major life transitions, I offer compassion and evidence-based approaches as you ignite your courage to make empowered choices towards thriving. In particular, I have extensive experience supporting LGBTQ+ individuals through the joys and uncertainties of self-discovery.
Whether it's rebuilding trust after betrayal, navigating communication roadblocks, or reigniting that lost spark, couples therapy can help you reconnect with your partner. I create a safe haven for honest exploration, where shared responsibility and open communication pave the way for healing and revitalization.
