My aim is to meet the emergent needs of those seeking to improve how they feel about and relate to themselves, others and life. My relational approach + family systems, attachment, and trauma-focused training support my efforts to show up for my clients with a direct and compassionate style. Therapy with me is about having an advocate for yourself, someone who will hold the light while you go inward to explore and discover the solutions that fit just right for you. Our collaboration is dedicated to you feeling less distressed and more empowered and free to live a life that feels authentic and satisfying.
Additionally, I have honed particular expertise in the areas of relationships and addiction. Many years ago, when addiction first emerged in the lives of those I love, I found myself, toe-to-toe, with one of the most significant challenges of my life; deciphering how best to care for my loved ones… without interrupting our mutual opportunities for growth… or sacrificing my own wellbeing in the process. That journey unearthed valuable lessons and the development of skills that particularly accentuate my ability to support clients facing addiction in their own life.
