Message to clients

Therapy can be a place to define challenges, discover strengths, and find validation for your unique self. I have experience working with individuals and couples with themes including grief, loss, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, sexuality, infidelity, self esteem, and communication.
Making changes or getting through transitions can be hard; with an open-minded perspective I can meet you in this place. I offer a holistic approach, focusing on resources.

Whatever brings you to move towards this process, I offer to meet you with compassion, creativity, humor, and respect.
