Welcome!

My passion is in helping people navigate their complex lives by providing individual, family and group counseling for ages six through adulthood. My creative and non-traditional approach to therapy is used to address issues that impact the individual and the family system. I look forward to meeting and helping you traverse the waters of life and become healthier through the process.
