The alliance between client and therapist is most vital toward effective therapy.

Treatment Approach

I am trained in several types of talk therapy.

Possibly more important: I have decades of experience working with, knowing, and being in community with people from all walks of life and virtually all circumstances.

I’ve been focused on families — academically, professionally, and personally — ever since I can remember. I find families fascinating (and they can also be frustrating, infuriating, and fun!)

I’m a long-time single mom, and have a big heart for other creatures, too.

One of my favorite ways of relaxing is through cooking — I’m pretty good at opening the pantry and fridge, and crafting whatever’s there into a satisfying dish.¬†

I believe strongly in the power of music and enjoy virtually all types, mindfully.
