Director of Wellness Services

"My personal journey impacts the ways I show up as a professional. I recognize the importance of self-disclosure when appropriate and helpful, along with being especially mindful of allowing my clients to guide the process, rather than proclaiming that I have the 'solution'."

HELLO, IT'S NICE TO MEET YOU!

In our working together, you can expect to experience a compassionate and non-biased space where you will feel heard, seen, validated, and responded to, while also being gently guided into new levels of awareness, insight, and opportunities.

I believe each of my clients already has everything they need within them; my role is to come alongside them in harnessing what already exists.
