My Approach to Helping

I work with individuals and couples (same-sex and opposite sex) interested in reaching a deeper understanding of themselves and their interactions with the rest of the world. In my practice, I provide a supportive and safe environment for individuals to be heard and understood; at the same time, I am active and engaging. Emotional issues often occur when individuals have experienced a sense of disconnection or lack of empathy in their relationships. I will work with you to help you have insight into your thoughts, behaviors, and relationships, so that you can gain clarity and begin to make healthier choices.
