In this current era, many people are experiencing the stress that comes along with existential uncertainty, locally, nationally, and ecologically. My existential-humanist background recognizes approaches these concerns without pathologizing or oversimplifying. Instead, I help you determine what approach is right for you, as well as providing tools to manage and work with uncomfortable emotions we inevitably face when considering our human predicament.

My lifelong commitment since studying for a PhD in comparative religion has been focused on value conflicts and how to navigate them. In the past several years, divisions between political values in U.S. culture have widened considerably. Such divisions have split apart marriages, families, and workplaces. There are more and less effective ways of navigating the conflicts if not resolving them. My process honors difference and holds people to account. I am trained in Nonviolent Communication.
