About My Clients

For over 25 years I have journeyed with clients facing life transitions, relational challenges, medical diagnosis, chronic illness, terminal illness, and grief. I specialize in supporting, educating, and caring for individuals, couples, and families as they attempt to journey well through significant life transitions and redefine a 'new normal' when the 'normal' life they knew may not be possible anymore. I am experienced in working with the LGBTQ+ community.

My Background and Approach

Drawing from Narrative Therapy, Family Systems, Transactional Analysis, Attachment Theory and the Gottman method, my intent is to help clients find their voice, a sense of their own power, an expanded meaning and spirituality, and relational/emotional/spiritual healing that can lead toward a greater wholeness than they may have ever known. I am skilled in helping couples move to a place of couple alignment and co-author a healthy and hopeful future narrative. I am passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ and other marginalized communities. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My ultimate goal is to help folks move toward a greater sense of wholeness. This work involves confronting the various elements that hold us back from achieving that - woundedness from our past, systemic injustices, marginalization, life challenges that get bigger than us at times. We can only move into the fullness of our humanity when we integrate the pieces of who we are. That is wholeness and creates the protentional for living our lives intentionally.
