How I help

family enjoying life

My goal is to empower clients so they can live their best life.

I do this by offering a caring, non-judgmental space for clients to explore what is distressing them. I help clients recognize the patterns in their behavior and/or communication styles that cause difficulty in their relationships or their life, in general. My education and experience working with hundreds of clients and parents provides the skills I need to effectively work with clients on communication patterns, stress and coping strategies, discipline structure (for parenting classes), and self-care.
