Looking for a place where you feel safe and free to discuss concerns impacting your relationships or other areas of your life? I am interested in providing a place where you can explore and find alternative possiblities to these areas of concern. 



Sometimes as couples we see the partner as the problem and focus on the details of the events. We don’t realize that as a couple we each have our own unique relational patterns. Patterns that can repeat themselves and are the culprit of the problems in our relationship. I join couples in noticing these patterns and in finding new alterantives. 



Youth and children have their own world to navigate, ranging from home, school, and extracurricular activities. They too are making sense of where they belong and the phases in their lives. Supporting them in their current journey by acknowledging stressors in their lives in a age appropriate manner is my endeavor.



Feeling connected can be difficult at times when so many stressors and societal expectations impact us every day. Providing a space where the problems can be speareted from our familial relationships and our connections are strengthened is a focus in my work.
