2019: Due to personal and family reasons, I will only be able to work very limited hours for the
foreseeable future and I am not taking on new clients at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.
Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on
love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable.
Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover
the infinite power of our light.”
— Brené Brown
Sometimes the first step is the most difficult one to take. That has been true for me in my personal
life as well as my professional life. When it is time to reach out to a professional for help and
support, it is important to find a person that is the best fit for you or your loved one.
My philosophy of therapy is to provide a safe and supportive environment for my clients to feel seen,
to feel heard, and to feel supported. My hope is that therapy provides a nonjudgemental and nurturing
place where we can explore current issues at hand, be informed from past experiences, and look at
making healthy and balanced choices and decisions for the future.
Sometimes it is just a matter of making a connection and being seen and heard that can make all the
difference in the world. I feel like I am on a journey with my clients as they take steps forward in
their lives and I am honored to be present as this happens. I invite you to explore my website and
learn more about me and what I have to offer.
