About

My therapeutic style focuses on safety and empowerment. While I may be the “professional,” you are the expert of your own life. To establish trust, I wear my heart on my nerdy sleeve. I would never ask you to risk your vulnerability if I am unwilling to risk my own. I may use humor to foster hope and ease discomfort. I welcome you to question my perspectives to improve the power of our co-created insights. We will collaborate and develop ways for you to make new choices, break old patterns, and build more effective supports. Our work will help you unlock your potential for healing, and get you closer to the person you want to be.
I have years of experience and training in a range of areas including: complex generational trauma, issues related to adolescence, issues related to foster care / adoption, school / college-related problems, parental support, family / relational conflicts, depression, anxiety, feelings of isolation, and major life transitions.
Currently I am only available Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings, as well as limited weekend hours. If anything I have said resonates with you, please feel free to reach out via phone or email. It would be an honor to walk with you on your journey towards wellness.
