"I love working with anyone seeking a supportive presence. I have empathy for someone who is hit with a heavy life challenge (e.g. abandonment, betrayal, injustice, trauma, spiritual lows, life purpose), yet is unsure of who they can reach out to for help. I enjoy helping those struggling with relationship difficulties and family challenges, recognizing that these issues are never as simple as those on the outside think. I also enjoy connecting with youth and have a lot of 'kid' in my personality, and like to provide play therapy and work with school issues."

"We all need support, especially during those significant and difficult times in our lives of struggle and pain. The beauty of the counseling process is that you have your own sacred place to gain support, perspective, care, even healing. You don't have to be alone... in fact, healing happens within the context of relationships. So whether you are dealing with relationship issues, or in need of parenting support or coping skills, or are overwhelmed with life's circumstances... there is support."
