I empower individuals and couples to identify concerns and issues within themselves and their relationships that impede a healthy, productive relationship and lifestyle. I have worked with individuals, children, adolescents, couples, and families since opening my private practice in 2012. Research shows that healthy communication in relationships, as well as balancing body, mind, and spirit substantiate and enhance one’s ability to live a longer, more fulfilling life.
