I believe that our spirit knows how to heal and I will partner with you as you align your life with your aspirations and pursue your goals.

Life can be challenging and change is inevitable, and with transitions there are many aspects to growth and loss. I work with individuals, couples, and family systems; often dealing with unprocessed grief, trauma, parenting, identity issues, and midlife decisions. It takes courage to communicate the strong emotions felt within these difficult topics, especially to those you love the most. I work alongside my clients, both adolescents to elderly; helping to explore and articulate their thoughts and feelings in a kind and effective manner.

Being able to stand back from one's self and gain perspective about one's personality, choices and actions are important in helping an individual work through issues. I help the client explore what issues from the past or present may be contributing to depression or anxiety.
