My Background and Approach

I celebrate diversity, which means I welcome you and relationships and families of every kind. I offer a safe place for you to talk (at your own pace) about challenges that may feel impossible to discuss anywhere else. Focus areas include relationship difficulties, loss, interpersonal challenges, LGBTQ+/queer concerns, divorce support, stress, pre-teen and adolescent challenges, anxiety, depression, a general sense of feeling unhappy, parenting and more. If you're having a hard time you do not need to be alone. My office is a confidential, non-judging environment where you will be an equal partner in sessions. We will talk safely about whatever is feeling important to you, exploring your life as it truly is in order to make the kind of real and lasting life changes that you want.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

There are many ways to thrive. Therapy is about finding and honoring your truth so that you can live the life that fits you best.
