About

Navigating life’s difficulties can be challenging, especially during this time of physical and emotional isolation. I honor all as unique individuals and value your life experiences. Prior to counseling, my background was in music where I maintained a professional position in the arts for over 20 years. I can relate to the many challenges artists face on a deeper level and I understand the pain and frustration that comes with being creative and sensitive. I value the importance of cultivating a strong therapeutic relationship so we can collaborate in finding the tools within yourself to move towards positive growth and change.
I am passionate about helping others. I will focus on your current concerns and work with you to find ways to help overcome them at your own pace in a safe, non-judgemental, and warm environment. Our sessions will be focused on you, both where you are in the moment and where you hope to go. Together we'll discover what’s best for your journey to wholeness.
I have a tremendous amount of respect for you and your interest in seeking therapy. It is an honest and brave way to heal and grow. I feel it’s important for you to share your story and to be heard. I look forward to connecting with you and supporting you along the way.
