Waking up to another morning feeling the same anxiety and dread of job, self-identity, the partner, the problem, the family. Does it feel all too much? Or too empty? Are you ready to take steps forward while being present in the right here right now? Are you ready to breath in fresh air whatever the obstacles - to feel excited and at peace by life? My approach begins with you, your relationship with you, the people around you & your environment. We all suffer from common problems in living, love and work; but the solutions that will work for each of us are as unique as we are.


My practice embodies emotional & behavioral self-regulation, psychodynamic, attachment, CBT, relational, motivational, trauma-informed, strength-based as well as nature & mindfulness techniques. There are a variety of different approaches that I have training in, but together we will find what works best for you!


I have experience supporting, holding, cultivating a safer space with individuals from different back grounds and family configurations, ethnic/racial, spiritual, LGBTQI. Reach out through email or phone call and together we will walk this path of self discovery. It is your path, you deserve to be happy and fulfilled no matter the forks in the road.
