    Sharing our lives is a profound and vulnerable experience. No matter how many years of life you have experienced, sharing those years of life is something that deserves a place that is safe and comfortable. My goal is to provide that place for you. That sharing might look different each time we meet. There might be sharing of joys and sharing of struggles. There might be sharing that brings tears and also sharing that brings laughter. No matter what you are sharing, I will work tirelessly to make sure that you feel safe and comfortable doing it.

    I look forward to talking with individuals of all ages and backgrounds. You might be a singular individual, a couple, or a whole family. No matter who you are or what situation you are discussing we will work together to make you the healthiest individual you can be. We will work together to create healthy, sustainable, and appropriate boundaries in your life that will allow for your growth. We will lean into the tensions you are feeling, and will work to create systems that allow you to come out of those tensions as the most emotionally healthy person you can be.

    Our lives are a journey. I look forward to joining you on your journey of life as you strive towards mental and emotional health.
