DESCRIPTION OF CLINICAL PRACTICE

Are you coming to terms with a challenging life transition, or feeling overwelmed, anxious, or sad, or simply wanting a deeper connection with yourself?
If so, I invite you to contact me. I can hold a supportive and empathic presence for you that will enable you to explore your relationship to life's
challenges and to align with your inner resources. My approach draws on strategies that are tailored to meet you where you are and to focus on your
individual goals and needs.
