Message to clients

You can create the life you want and deserve.

Starting therapy is a brave and courageous step. I’ll help you uncover illusive core issues and assist you in transforming blocks, leaving you free to thrive in the life you choose. I am deeply committed to helping people lead flourishing lives and am honored to do this work. I truly enjoy facilitating clients in becoming their most empowered selves.

In my free time I love being in nature (snowboarding, mountain biking, rock climbing). Yoga, meditation, and dance are also a major part of my life.

"Let the waters settle and you will see the moon and the stars mirrored in your own being."

~ Rumi
