My goal as a therapist is to give you the tools to develop a deep, fulfilling sense of connection: with your loved ones; with your community, school or workplace; and with your gifts, your values and your life goals.

I believe that a painful childhood or a traumatic experience; entrenched destructive habits; uncomfortable emotions and negative thoughts do not have to define or limit you.

We'll work together to promote genuine, meaningful integrated connection between your whole self, your family, your community,  so you can  live your values, enjoy thriving relationships, and experience happiness and joy.

Helping people build vibrant meaningful lives, and sound nurturing connections.
