Welcome. I am glad you are here. As a person who was raised by POW survivors and refugees, I know intimately how trauma can be woven into the fabric of one’s history. I know first hand the hardship of coming face to face with the questions of “how do we live on in the wake of loss and/or betrayal?” and more importantly, “how can we begin to laugh again?”. The fact that you have found yourself here on this page tells me that you have already taken that first step beyond survival and towards deeper living.

We all have different seasons in our lives where we may feel a pull or a need for change and growth. My hope is to help those on their individual journeys find a place that feels good for them and their families. I believe that everyone deserves to feel safe, heard and validated and thus I provide that in my therapy room, and help other family members develop that for one another.

Life can be a journey with peaks and valleys. Sometimes we can feel stuck along the way, and the tools that once served us are no longer working. This can leave us feeling hopeless, lost, and alone. That is when having a fellow traveler and a safe space to navigate life’s difficulties can help us adjust course and find peace. With more than 17 years of experience, it would honor me to be a part of your healing journey.
