~ Welcome ~

We are living in challenging times.  We all experience the uncertainty of the world around us and feel the pressures to succeed, belong and live our lives with meaning.  Despite being more “connected” than ever, these times of uncertainty give many people a sense of unease and disconnection.  Adults and young people alike can feel self-doubt, loneliness and find themselves unable to cope in healthy ways.  

You are not alone.

We all crave authentic connection and belonging with others.  This is especially true when your life is in transition or turmoil.   It takes courage to lean in to your struggles and allow others to lean in with you.  I believe in taking the time to “get real” with you, person to person, and collaborate with you to tap into your strengths, resiliency and build tools that empower you. I utilize a layered therapeutic approach in my work and believe in understanding who you are as a whole person, including the experiences and stories that have been part of your life.

“Daring greatly means the courage to be vulnerable.  

  It means to show up and be seen.  

  To ask for what you need.  

  To talk about how you’re feeling.  

         To have the hard conversations.”
