What I Offer

You come into this life with the innate potential to create fulfillment and meaning for your life.

My calm, welcoming demeanor and inclusive stance set the stage for personalized and compassionate support. I attentively listen and empathically respond while encouraging you to uncovering the strengths you already hold. 

Together, we begin to understand and diminish the barriers that keep you from being your authentic self or from thriving in a healthy relationship. We draw upon your inner resources to help you express and assert yourself. We work toward enhancing your ability to move toward joy and fulfillment in your life.

As your therapist, I am here to not only support you through your present concern, I become a collaborator in your healing and growth process. I offer:

  • Culturally sensitive, diversity accepting, and affirming adult counseling

  • Pre-marital and marriage counseling

  • Interventions to alleviate depression, anxiety, or stress

  • Support through life transitions, such as career change, empty nest, or retirement

  • Private, compassionate support throughout bereavement

Just by connecting with me through this website, you've already taken the first step toward creating the life that you envision for yourself.

Being tuned out of emotional experience is like navigating through life without being able to use your internal compass.
