About me

A former ski instructor and lawyer, I became a mental health counselor to help others find their passions.

Mental health and addiction challenges can derail us from what is important and rob us of our truest selves.

Ten years as a clinician have given me experience in many therapeutic modalities and experience working with a variety of clients and circumstances.

I look forward to meeting you.
