I specialize in helping individuals make changes in the way they work, resolve difficult issues,
take action and move forward with their plans. I will work with you to process the changes, to cope
when the hard times are upon you, and to learn skills to improve the daily choices that you make.

I am dedicated to helping my clients build bridges to a healthier, happier life. Are you going
through a big change? Life calls us into constant change. Whether planned and joyful or unexpected
and grief filled: changes in relationships; parenting; or career – they take their toll on each of
us. Healing through grieving, stretching, adjusting, and growing can be blocked when you feel
overwhelming emotions, when you are fearful and avoidant of what is to come, and when you simply
don't know how to move ahead. I listen to, support, and teach my clients to help reduce anxiety,
depression, and stress that comes with life transitions.

We all have feelings. Which is why I'm honored to serve those who identify as gay, lesbian,
bisexual, transgender, asexual, or non-binary. I will help you build self-esteem, learn coping
skills to help with bullying and explore ways to build stronger relationships with parents and
family members. I help individuals and families communicate and have challenging conversations that
we often avoid. I take pride in being able to assist you to share your challenges, find your
strength, and celebrate your daily victories.
