Do you find yourself at a crossroads in life? Are you seeking to move from being "stuck" to "unstuck"? Are you looking for additional perspectives to your issues and concerns? 

 

Difficult seasons in our lives can be expected, and sometimes our old ways of coping or adapting do not meet the need of our season.

I believe you can adapt to meet the need of your season without losing the essence of what  makes  you,  you.  I view all my clients through a systemic lens, highlighting the

highlighting the importance of context in understanding your concerns, major forces of influence, and formulating therapeutic goals. My theoretical approaches include family systems theory, narrative therapy, relational cultural therapy, person-centered counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, and structural family therapy.
