“Have the courage to follow your curiousity, heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you want to become.” ~ Steve Jobs
I am an empathic, sensitive and intuitive person who also has strong intellectual and analytical abilities. I have a love of learning, am curious about the world, and appreciate beauty and excellence. These qualities are naturally integrated into my style of working as a psychotherapist and a coach.
My specialization is relationships, and I use research-based tools. As a psychotherapist, I help people strengthen and repair their relationships and heal attachment injuries. I work with couples, individuals, and traditional and non-traditional families. As a life coach, I help people who want to live authentically in relationship with themselves and others. I support my clients in realizing their potential, clarifying directions and goals, making changes, achieving goals, and overcoming obstacles.
My mission is to help people strengthen and repair relationships with themselves and others and with community and the world. I have been seeing clients since 2007 and am currently in private practice.
