About

I am passionate about supporting people to live the fulfilled life they want, thrive in their job and career, and savor authentic relationships.

Your therapy will be unique to your needs. I see psychotherapy working by addressing the emotional/behavioral patterns and relationship styles we learn in childhood that sometimes do not work in adulthood. I meet my clients in their personal experience with compassion, and I guide them in an inquiry into their issues, sometimes challenging them with different perspectives or with goals that will help them push past their experience of feeling stuck.
