Want a way out of pain and into freedom but don’t know how to get there? That’s where I come in. When you work with me, you get a woman with a big heart, a keen mind, and a clarity of purpose. It is my mission to hold space for you to feel safe to sit with big emotions, and to express whatever is in you that needs to be let out. There is a way to a more joyful life, and I will help you get there. Men: I create an environment in which you can find strength in vulnerability. I walk with you out of old, negative perceptions of your own masculinity and toward a new, vibrant realization of yourself as a man in the world.

Women: I help you get in touch with your authentic anger and rage. I hold space for you to feel, to speak, and to move through mental and emotional blocks holding you back from being your full, true self. My experience with expressive art and play therapy is ideal to help youth heal and discover their authentic truth.

I am particularly sensitive to the needs of those in marginalized communities such as women, youth, LGBTQ, and people of color. You will not find judgement with me - only deep compassion. If you are committed to making a positive change in your life, I am here for you. Freedom is possible, and it starts right here, right now.
