Philosophy of Care:

Well-conducted counseling is both an art and a science.  I provide a brave space for clients to explore, and speak freely about uncomfortable topics.  I believe reflection, curiosity, and finding the right tools for your toolbox are the keys to successful growth. I am honored to be a part of my client’s journeys and get to celebrate their growth with them.
