If you are feeling overwhelmed, don't suffer alone! Everyone can use support sometimes, and I love finding ways to help clients feel comforted, supported, and encouraged. I work primarily with women, although that work can extend into couples and families. I work on many different issues, but have special interest in anxiety, life transitions, grief, and parenting work. I offer an integrated model for counseling and wellness including a holistic approach, practical ideas for change, a beautiful setting, and yoga and retreat offerings. Good counseling can create a connection where change, and growth are possible and even likely.

I have training in grief and loss as well as infertility, parenting, and adoption.
Is there something holding you back from the experience of feeling fully alive, safe, and satisfied in your own life; in your own skin? Experiencing internal and external difficulties long enough and under enough stress, we become disconnected to what makes life worth living. I believe my job is to provide a safe space and be a supportive, caring, non-judgmental presence as a guide and collaborator. Together we can face what is hurting or not helping you. I have worked over the years in a variety of settings with adults, children, teens, families and couples from diverse backgrounds and identities.
