IMG_8593At the heart of my counseling philosophy is the awareness that though we are each unique, we share in our one human experience. If we open ourselves to the ongoing aid and support of this connection, we are able to heal and grow.

Working from a person-centered lens, I integrate techniques and interventions to understand presenting symptoms with empathy, compassion and mindfulness. I trust that clients have what they need to heal. These gems of wisdom will come, when the client is ready to be with them, and I am here to facilitate the process.

Interests include treatment of adolescents, adults and couples facing barriers to life satisfaction and emotional wellbeing. Additionally, with a background in corporate marketing, management, yoga and wellness, I am well versed in professional and organizational development, leadership and career counseling.
