I will help you live into the life you want. I am a calm presence offering a healing space and feedback to challenge you, that will lead to growth.

 

I provide individual therapy and couples therapy (relationship therapy) for professionals and new parents. I help you move from busy to intentional city dweller, creating healthy patterns to live in the present.
 
If you feel you are in crisis - overwhelmed by anxious feelings, panic, stress, or feeling down about your life and relationships - I will help you make sense of those feelings, navigate them, and function better day-to-day.
 
Our work together may begin with problem-solving and working through the crisis at hand. With my guidance you will quickly understand the undercurrents that have brought you to this place. We will gently address these patterns at your pace and create a healing narrative so that when you leave my office, you are in a better place.
 
After working with me, you can expect to feel more content and purposeful, to function comfortably in your relationships, master a work-life flow, and be connected to the things that bring you joy.
 
For new parents, I bring my experience and training to help you navigate the logistical and emotional challenges of pregnancy and parenting. Together we identify your supports and strengths, and create a plan to ensure you have what you need to parent confidently each day.
 
Alongside young professionals, I help you to understand yourself and create a meaningful role for yourself in today’s world. Areas of focus may include couples therapy, family relationships, vocation, finances, and establishing healthy daily routines. You will leave each appointment with a “take away” assignment or reflection to continue your growth in between our meetings.
