With over 22 years of experience, I specialize in working with Couples and relationships as well as LGBTQI+ and People of Color.

Aloha. I help folks who are experiencing distress and want relief. This distress may have built up over time and/or be the result of a sudden event that shakes our world. We all learn patterns of relating to ourselves, others, and the world that may now no longer serve us very well. This can result in relationship difficulties, depression and anxiety; grief, emptiness, confusion, a lack of direction and meaning. What we want is more understanding, ease, joy, connection, secure functioning, and a sense we are on our true path. As a relational therapist, I can help support your exploration, healing, coping and growth, as you uncover a more authentic and clear sense of Self from which we are able to live our best lives and contribute our gifts to the world.
I do this by helping folks bring hidden aspects of themselves into connection for healing, integration and growth. This way of relating gets at the root of problems, and alleviates symptoms as we unburden and come home to ourselves. I have broad experience working with LGBTQ+ folk and people of color, and I affirm gender identity, neurodiversity, and social justice in my work.
