About

Do you feel alone even in a room full of family and friends? Are you wearing a mask so convincing even those closest to you can’t tell? What about your relationship with your partner; is it strained? Are your attempts to communicate leading to arguments that leave you drained and frustrated? Perhaps you're in a season of transition that has you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed. These are tough challenges. Presently, isolation and distancing ourselves from others has become the norm and it’s easier trying not to face them. The problem is you can’t avoid yourself. Resolution requires our attention and intentional effort.
As a relational therapist, I center you with an understanding that our relationship plays a critical role in your ability to feel safe and process. My focus is to create a therapeutic relationship with you and become a genuine, safe space where you can remove the mask.
I am extremely passionate about working with couples, families, and individuals experiencing relationship issues, living with the effects of trauma, or having difficulty in times of transition. I commend you for taking the first step… take another. Contact me so I can share my expertise and hold space with you.
