About

Would you like to feel more connected and valued in your life and relationships? Together we can enter your world as you see it, including what you believe about yourself, both good and bad. Behaviors and emotions make sense when we see them clearly from the perspective of the person, given their history and the lessons they have learned. I enjoy meeting people who want more from their life and are willing to put in the work to get there. My goal is to provide a trusting environment where you, the client, can feel valued and free to share yourself without the worry of judgement.
My work focuses on adults and couples who endeavor to live a life of fulfillment, meaning, and joy. Most of the issues we struggle with are not fully known to us because “that is the way it has always been” and they can exist outside of our awareness. My focus is on the origins and background of trauma and neglect and how that builds our internal image.
If you feel as though your life should not be so hard and are willing to put in the work needed to achieve a fulfilling and meaningful life, let's work together towards that goal.
