I provide counseling for teens and adults struggling with difficult life transitions, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, parenting challenges, career stagnation, health issues and grief and loss. I also work with couples who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship and who are seeking help in reducing conflict, improving communication and increasing intimacy.

Using a humanistic and collaborative approach, my role is to assist clients in identifying the patterns that cause them to be stuck and help them develop new insights and strategies to improve their confidence and overall well-being, as well as engage in relationships more deeply and effectively.
