People are unique human beings with a long list of remarkable qualities. Sometimes though, we feel that we have qualities that we need to work on to be our better selves. I work with individuals to find those qualities and strengthen the ones we want to stay around. You may be a good fit for me if you: have ADHD, have children, are a family with adult children in the home, are a lifelong learner, are tired of looking at the positive side all the time, and willing to work on your problems in and out of therapy!

Connection. It's what heals us. Connection to self, loved ones, community, nature, art, purpose- it's the main ingredient for a life worth living. But this world is messy, and our lives can look like anything BUT connection for weeks, months, years... how long has it been? There are so many ways to end up here: stressful or traumatic experiences, an "othered" identity (think LGBT, race, spirituality, etc.), parenting children with high needs, or stigmas around a mental health condition. That feeling of disconnection can touch every thought, feeling, and dream that you have. But here's the good news: This is where our story begins.
