About

We all have potential for change and, sometimes, need a guide through the obstacles that stand in our way. These obstacles include fears and worrying, self-doubt, unresolved healing from past trauma, and being "stuck" in the past or self-sabotaging patterns. Whether your goal is to overcome fears, get "unstuck", "reset" self-defeating patterns, or learn to enjoy life again, we can make this happen together. My primary goals are to listen, understand, challenge, and help you gain a new perspective on your situation. I work with motivated adults who want to improve their relationships, work performance, and social lives.
I specialize in collaboratively assisting others to identify core causes for their distress, deepen their understanding of themselves, and develop an effective plan of action to achieve their goals. My extensive training and experience in various treatment approaches aids in tailoring a plan of specific strategies relevant for your needs and perspective.
Previous clients have particularly commented on my warm, non-judging, affirmative, and calm presence as a gift in my work. My style provides an compassionate and safe environment for us to explore and confront your issues in an authentic manner that will bring about true, lasting change.
