About me

I provide collaborative counseling services to individuals and couples whose lives have been ripped apart due to anger, relational conflict, loss/grief and shattered dreams.

Unresolved pain and fear from "doin' life" fuels anger and other behaviors that destroy relationships and turn life into a cardboard dirt sandwich with a side of sawdust.

Get started on your healing today. Reach out. Schedule a session. Sometimes that first session can change your world.

I collaborate with individuals and couples looking to improve the quality of their life by understanding how their story (narratives of their past, present and future), personality, and temperament influence their psychological fitness skill-sets (coping, problem solving, and communicating) and overall mental wellness.

Using Narrative, Cognitive Behavioral, and Client-Center Therapy techniques and psychoeducation, I help individuals and couples identify and accept their personality traits, temperament characteristics, life story, and personally defined wants & needs. Then, we craft new, future-focused narratives and begin the healing process.
