About

Whether you are struggling with relationship decisions, would like to review previous life choices or need help with parenting, I look forward to assisting you in the process. Client's arrive with divergent treatment needs and ideas about therapy and its function. I encourage my client's take the lead while I support their exploration toward a successful threrapeutic outcome. Sometimes that can be done in 3 or 4 sessions and other times circumstances require more time. It is important that my clients feel safe and I earn their trust.
I've assisted diverse individuals and families with communication skills, adapting to new life situations, depression, loss/grief, anxiety, early childhood trauma and negative interactions. My clients include individuals from the LGBTQ community, couples, and families. I'm sensitive to each individuals history, culture, and socioeconomic situation.
My approach is relationship focused toward a secure attachment. I look forward to working with you.
