You need support and options when you are working through difficult times in your life. We'll work together to identify what is causing your difficulties and what you can do to move your life in the direction you'd like. I work with adults, adolescents, couples and families. I have developed skill in clearing out painful emotions and working with couples to regain their relationship health. We'll use your goals, emotions, thoughts, and choices to help you find a way to address your concerns.
I also work with people who are in, or recovering, from abusive relationships or work places; and with people who are struggling to aid a family member. Caretakers have their own significant needs for support.
