About My Approach

Relationship-centered. Experiential. Practical.

We humans are complicated and beautiful beings! And we are created for meaningful lives and deep connection in our significant relationships. Sometimes, though, our lives get off track, and we need help sorting through the pain and stress of the complicated pieces.  We need to nurture the parts of ourselves we've ignored, to expand our skills or to open new pathways for meaningful connection to ourselves and others.


I provide my clients with a safe space for exploration, healing, and growth.

I am passionate about supporting families, couples and individuals in creating lives filled with purpose and awake to the very best in themselves and each other!

LOOKING FOR A NEW EXPERIENCE OF YOUR RELATIONSHIPS?

Insight can be helpful. However, as a therapist trained in experiential models of therapy and systems theory, I am committed to providing my clients with opportunities for experiences that go beyond insight—experiences of safety, strength, and being seen; experiences of leaning toward loved ones to see them more clearly; experiences of deep connection to Self and to others.
