We all want to feel whole inside ourselves and in our relationships. As children, adolescents, and adults, we constantly navigate the developmental process. We are strive to evolve and grow. We are innately drawn toward health and feeling well. However, this path sometimes takes uncomfortable and unhealthy turns when we are challenged with obstacles.

I focus the work of therapy on navigating that journey. I will help you set out on your path and facilitate your work to overcome obstacles. I will help you generate healthy solutions to problems, find your own wisdom, tap into what motivates you to sustain your personal growth, and create a feeling of well-being inside you and in the space between you and another.
