It's my calling and my privilege to work with you

I am a highly dedicated, caring, and experienced Registered Psychotherapist.   You will feel understood by me and that I will know how to help you.   

My PhD dissertation was on attachment theory and women in romantic relationships, which means that I have studied both women and men and know important ways to help you in a focused way.  

Clients find that my business undergraduate degree is very helpful when discussing work or career issues.   

The skills from my training as a life, executive, and couples coach propel growth and change for my clients.   

I have a deeply held belief that people can heal, grow, change, and become their best selves despite any life circumstance that have impacted them.   

There is always hope.  Change happens when you allow yourself to fully engage in the process that it will take to meet your goals.
