About

Couple issues? Family problems? Children or Adolescents with issues? An individual struggling with problems? No matter the stage in your life or relationship there can be bumps in the road at times. Sometimes no matter how hard you may try, you may find you are struggling. Sometimes we find that despite our best efforts we may need help with certain aspects of life. Perhaps we need help leaving old unhealthy behaviors behind, or maybe we need help learning better ways of communicating with our loved ones.
Our lives are lived in connection with others, whether they are biological family, or friends & family that we choose. In my work with individuals, couples, families, children in play therapy, & adolescents, I strive to help clients use their lived connections as catalysts for positive growth and change.
Whatever the reason, I am here to help you discover and adopt new, healthier, ways of functioning as a family, couple, individual, or child/adolescent. I strive to help create a caring, open, and honest environment where everyone feels safe expressing their needs and fostering growth. I hope to work with you, to create lasting change through empowerment.
