I help people change through developing a greater awareness for all of themselves, which allows them greater resources to deal with the struggles that they are experiencing. As they develop greater awareness of themselves, including their wants, needs, emotions, and ways of relating to others, people tend to develop a wider range of choices in their lives. They learn to recognize what they do that keeps them from being their best selves. They also learn to tap into and use their own internal wisdom to help guide their choices, developing a greater authenticity in their lives. In relationships, couples and families develop greater intimacy and ability to use conflict to further their relationship through their greater awareness of themselves and their other family members. People I work with also learn with guidance and coaching to experiment with new ways of being with themselves and others in the world, which furthers their growth and development into more happy, fulfilled human beings.
I have a deep respect for my own humanity and the humanity of others. I am honored and humbled by the courage and spirit of the people I work with and the struggles they face. I feel privileged to help people come to terms with pain, face challenges, and change their lives.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I work with a wide range of issues, but I feel particularly adept at helping people struggling with relationships, especially couples, parent-child, and whole family relationships. I have a deep respect for the complexity of relationships and the ways cultural context, life stress, family of origin issues, and conscious and unconscious needs can affect how family members interact. From both my training and my own life experience, I understand how people can experience deep joy, deep acceptance, and deep pain in relationships. I am passionate about helping people change their relationships to make room for more love, joy, and acceptance, while managing and growing from the necessary tensions and conflict that occurs in intimate relationships.
