I am passionate about engaging families and restoring relationships. Every family encounters moments of conflict that can result in confusion, hurt, and strained relationships. I enjoy helping families and individuals find strengths and solutions that can restore those relationships.
My desire is to provide space, active listening, and guidance to improve the relationships in the lives of those I serve. The counseling experience can be scary and evoke feelings of vulnerability. It is my job to create a safe environment where people can engage in the work of accomplishing their goals for family, intimate relationships, and friendships.
