My Approach to Helping
Life is full of bumps that can interfere with your ability to experience the full joy and happiness you deserve. Confidence and self esteem are easily challenged, sometimes individuals and families can use a guide in their journey, I can be that guide.
Counseling and psychotherapy is a powerful and individual journey. I use creative interventions to help individuals, couples, and families on their unique, personal journey of healing and growth.
If you're a parent, you know it is one of the most difficult yet most rewarding roles in life.
Parent coaching can help you navigate those difficult times, providing those instructions you wish your children came with. Do you want to understand and connect with your child at a deeper level? Filial therapy is a playful approach to helping your child and your relationship with them.
