My Approach to Helping

Have you been struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, intimacy issues, or problems that don't go away? Collaborating with a therapist who can provide insight, guidance, and tools to uncover and develop your strengths can be the transformative factor you need. You deserve to live a happier, more satisfying life but unless you take the first step to solve your problems, they will never go away. If you are an individual, couple, or pod desiring to open your relationship or there is a need to address challenges encountered in a consensual non-monogamous relationship, I have the experience to help you navigate both.

I believe in the power of relationships. My therapeutic approach honors the key relationships in your life and their connection to the issue(s) you wish to discuss. I embrace a wide-range of Eastern and Western religionsphilosophies resulting in a unique depth of perspective, allowing you to openly and freely access your own inner resources and wisdom.

I am an experienced provider of services for individuals, couples, and families experiencing emotional, behavioral and relational issues (infidelity grief isolation life-transition stress) including alternative lifestyles (polyopen). I bring compassion and unconditional acceptance to our sessions, fostering a safe, understanding environment for exploration.
