About

Until recently, you’ve adjusted to challenges by relying on personal strengths, a social circle, and your innate ability to rebound from the challenges of human existence. But something has changed. You may feel stuck, lost, confused, angry, sad, or anxious as you struggle to adjust to a new life transition. It may be a job or move, loss and grief (for a loved one, pet, miscarriage, or career), a life-threatening diagnosis, or divorce. You seek a safe, non-judgmental space to explore life’s challenges, identify meaning and purpose in life, improve decision-making skills, and enhance your intrapersonal and interpersonal connections.
I meet you where you are in life and help you identify and achieve goals through a therapeutic relationship based on authenticity, empathy, and non-judgment. My person-centered approach is not to give advice but to listen to your story and guide you in discovering the answers to life’s many challenges while identifying opportunities for personal growth.
Major life transitions can be heavy topics, even for a seasoned therapist. I am not afraid to sit with you, hold space for your emotions, and explore your existential fears. Listening is therapeutic, while laughter provides levity to life's deepest concerns. I am grateful for my clients, who've shown me the power of resilience. I welcome your life story!
