I work with individuals and couples, bringing 20 years of clinical experience informed by a lifetime of diverse career experience.

I work in a heartful, gentle and collaborative way, pacing and attuning with your needs.  For example, if there is recent or historic trauma, I’m conservative in my approach until I know you have capacity to dive a little deeper.  I aim to equip you with resources and ‘takeaways’ that empower you to be the best version of yourself.
