As women we face a different set of challenges in the world than men do. Our bodies, minds and emotions are at the core of how we function in the world. I specialize in working with women by understanding and empowering the traits that make us special, while taking into account the challenges we face daily in our society, personal lives and in the workplace. I love helping women learn to use their strengths to feel empowered and in control of their lives. 


When our relationships are going well, we tend to feel strong, supported and more able to reach our life goals. On the other hand, when our relationships are not going well, our world can be filled with feelings of insecurity and doubt. I specialize in working with individuals who are looking to improve their relationships - whether that be in your marriage or romantic relationship, friendships, family or professional relationships. 

Grief & Loss

Losing someone close to you is one of the most life- altering experiences we can go through as human beings. Grief is a healthy and normal process but it can also be overwhelming and difficult to navigate. I help clients coping with grief learn to manage the pain they are feeling and find ways to continue in the world while also honoring their loss.  Feelings of grief and loss can come not just from losing a loved one but also by letting go of different phases/stages of our lives.
