Specializes in

Stress and Women's Issues

Great to meet you!

I am trained to help people navigate trauma, life crises, and family conflicts, including the experiences of tumultuous and estranged family of origin dynamics. I do much work around improving communication by managing expectations and establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries. I am committed to providing a safe, non-threatening, and inquiry-based atmosphere for exploring needs, expectations, agency, voice, and treatment goals.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Thriving when we are not at our best is hard. Managing daily tasks when feeling overwhelmed, anxious, sad, worried, or fearful can be difficult without help. I believe life is often about surveying a situation and determining where growth opportunities exist. My clients are generally leaders who balance work, family, self-care, and opportunities for growth and advancement.

What you can expect from our first session

I specialize in on-demand, person-in-situation, timely, and solution-focused care, helping every client develop and achieve measurable goals. I demonstrate compassion in allying with clients on their path to greater JOY! Together we identify thoughts, hurts, and behaviors that are interfering with fulfillment and peace, implementing strategies for improvement during weekly sessions with life work resources. Let’s begin together today!
