Engage with Passion

Are you looking for a path toward more fulfillment personally and in your relationships? Engaging in a rich and meaningful life requires knowing ourselves deeply and acting on intentional choices guided by our core values, feelings, and desires. Our relationships become deeper and more intimate as we develop clarity about our needs and the courage to be vulnerable with those we trust to meet us on this level. I can assist you in connecting more deeply with yourself and embracing the challenges and joys of engaging in a passionate life. 

My Philosophy

I value the relationship I have with each client and believe the trust between us is an important aspect in creating a safe environment for growth. My intent is to help my clients feel comfortable to explore any issue they feel is important, no matter how difficult the topic may be to mention. I believe a counselor’s office is a space that is set aside for non-judgment and support, which we all need in our lives. I enjoy working with my clients to help them find ways to increase their understanding of themselves and others, to process their feelings, and to identify and practice new approaches to existing problems. I enjoy working with adult clients on a range of issues such as anxiety, sexual and relationship satisfaction, sexual identity, gender identity, body image, and self-esteem.
