Do you worry no one could love the real you? Do you feel chronically unvalued or unloved? Are you lonely even though you're among others? Do you believe something is wrong with you? Do you want to move beyond the walls that surround you? Do you have a deep desire to live a life free of condemnation and self-loathing? Are you ready to gain deeper insight, find understanding, and make peace with your challenges? I can help.
Everyone needs help sometimes. When you feel stuck, depressed, unhappy, or anxious, you may need the help of a trained, skilled, and supportive listener. Therapy can offer deep compassion and insight, as well as a supportive, judgment-free space where yo can safely explore the obstacles you face to a fulfilling, happy life. I can offer you that. I have helped families and individuals for more than 15 years, aiding my clients to navigate the roadblocks to their happiness. I can help you.
I specialize in healing relationships by helping couples more deeply connect, allowing them to understand one another more than they ever thought was possible. I can offer you and your partner tools to move forward with a loving, fulfilling, and lasting relationship.
I am also committed to helping families heal their relationships with one another. I specialize in work with blended, step, foster, and adopted families, LGBTQ families, and families reuniting after long absences.
I want to help you heal your relationship with your self, particularly if you struggle with body image or eating issues.

I offer exploration and spiritual counseling paired with an open-minded and wonder-oriented attitude. I can help you find the spirit already dwelling within you. I will help you discover your authentic, essential self, so you can access your profound inner wisdom.
