About

Are you seeking relief ? When something doesn’t line up between our expectations and the conditions of life, work, home, and society, we experience friction, which can lead to distress. There is something empowering and wonderful about reaching out to a neutral party when in a place of pain. And it is not easy, seeking help is the first step. Distress might show up as grief, anxiety, depression, anger, major life changes, feelings of hopelessness, miscommunication, and health issues. Navigating our differences with others can challenge us to our core. Therapy can offer transformation, hope, and relief.
I have extensive training in relationship dynamics and see individuals and couples, offering tools, understanding and resources to help you now. I work hard to build trust, so you can unburden yourself in safety. No topic is off topic. Guilt, shame, the "should's" and grief weigh us down. As a former arts educator and yoga teacher, my approach is holistic.
The foundation of my practice is solution-focused and strength-based. Our lives evolve and change. I believe in normalizing what you are experiencing as we work collaboratively to navigate bumps and build resilience for better health. Optimal wellness happens when you are true to yourself. Being heard and understood is powerful. Reach out. I'm here to help.
