I view clients through the lens of possibility and not dysfunction. Working from a strengths-based perspective, I utilize solution focused and narrative therapies to build resilience and bring out the best in clients and their relationships. I especially love working with couples and families from a systemic perspective but work with all clients regardless of presenting need. I am passionate about hope and healing as I work with clients from their unique worldviews and abilities.
