About

Sometimes when life happens, we are left with feelings of frustration, confusion, sadness or anger. Then, we face the challenge of moving on, getting by, grieving, and coping. Identifying a problem and a need for help are difficult and necessary first steps towards getting "unstuck", healing and recovery. You have made the first step. I will work with you through the rest.
You are the expert of your life's story. My goal is to help you reflect and process your life's experiences/challenges in effort to help you heal, learn new tools and skills, be empowered, and improve your overall well-being. Let's work together to identify and achieve your goals. Change is possible! Be the change!
