You’re healing from relational trauma due to betrayal, divorce, or narcissistic abuse. You’re contemplating marriage and need evidence-based pre-marital and relationship education/assessment. You’re wanting to address sexual shame. Or, you’re facing a big life transition and/or are working on self discovery/growth/individuation. You're ready to heal, grow and thrive!
My passion & specialty is helping people in relationship w/ themself and others. Healthy relationships are the bedrock for having a healthy, fulfilling, harmonious long life.
