Personal Statement

We live in an imperfect world and each of us has experienced a unique journey that has molded the way we respond to life’s challenges and difficulties. Much of our personalities are formed before we are even able to talk. As a result, there are forces at work within us that we often don’t understand as we try to relate to others, cope and make meaning of our lives. I seek to create a safe environment and listen empathetically to understand the experience of each of my clients as we work together to find healing, hope, personal growth, and freedom.

Who I Serve

I have a particular burden for those with broken or struggling relationships. I have also found that most individual struggles are usually a by-product of relational issues. We all need a secure base to go out from and a safe haven to return to in our lives and properly functioning relationships provide these things. My passion is to help individuals and couples understand the forces at work within them along with the nature and health of their relationships to make positive changes and live more satisfying lives with no regrets.
