You may find yourself feeling lost and overwhelmed. It may feel like you never got the handbook for adulting.

The heart of what I do is support folks in being more authentic in their lives and relationships.When I work with couples and relationships, I’m interested in helping support you in figuring out where you have gotten stuck. That might mean helping you untangle from the cycle of conflict, re-igniting passion back into your connection, healing old hurts, talking about tender topics, and finding more relational security together.
When I work with individuals, I’m interested in helping you learn more about who you really are, and what might be getting in the way of showing up that way in your life. That might include discovering your needs, learning more about how to feel your feelings, healing old hurts, getting support with boundaries, and making space for you to sink into being fully you.
