I have a heart to help people who are hurting and looking for relief, change, and hope. Maybe you're looking at life right now and it looks bleak, but you don't know what's wrong and much less how to fix it, or maybe you know exactly what your problem is, but you don’t know what to do about it or you just need an unbiased ear to sit with you, listen to you, and walk through the struggle with you as we work to find a solution. Regardless of your situation, I would love to help.

Throughout my career, I have never met a truly "broken" person incapable of making positive changes, and I work collaboratively with my clients to resolve their unique issues. I intentionally keep a small practice to provide clients with dedicated and individualized attention. I return voicemail messages within 24 hours.
