I believe that building an authentic relationship with each client is one of the first steps in moving towards peace, hope, and healing. As we seek to understand ourselves and the patterns of distress, conflict, or confusion we fall into, taking space to explore our strengths and connections is an important step in building a foundation for how we want to move through our world. I value creating a non-judgmental space for each individual, couple, or family to identify their goals and work together to reflect and acquire the necessary tools to begin to feel whole.
I am passionate about working with individuals, couples, and families struggling with relationship issues, disconnection, mood disorders, identity exploration, and other stressors. I have particular interest in working with LGBTQIA+ individuals as well as Queer couples in managing relationship and community stressors.
