Clients seek me out to navigate life changes; entering adulthood, transitioning to parenthood, difficulties in their marriage, infidelity, feeling lost, struggling with anxiety, intrusive thoughts, or depression. Wherever life has led you I am here to help you find your footing, gain personal insight and move forward on your journey.
