"**NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** I believe wellness is an ongoing journey that is complicated, scary, exciting, and has no specific road. In fact, I believe wellness is a journey that has unexpected twists and turns, where we encounter moments of growth, regression, or stalling. My hope is to join you in those tougher moments, and give you the space to set down all the heavy baggage you might be carrying and work with you to unpack what is weighing you down. I bring my genuine, quirky self to therapy and believe that as tough as it can be, there is plenty of space reserved for laughs and celebration."

"**Saturday appointments available ** It takes so much courage to ask for help. In my twenty plus years as a therapist I have been humbled time and again as clients make that call and come in for sessions. People come in to talk about some of the most difficult things, from childhood abuse to a struggling marriage. It has been a privilege to be of service to so many people. I often get asked how I can listen to peoples stories of hurt and pain and I answer that it is difficult but so hopeful. That is because people don’t have to stay in that place of emotional, psychological, spiritual, or relational pain."
