Chat with me

I came to the world of therapy after trying on a few careers, including teaching, advertising and journalism. The common thread for me was always a passion for people's stories about themselves and the world, and how this influences their growth, behavior and relationships. As it turns out, I care much more about the people telling those stories than about selling them things, or improving their grammar, so here I am! I continue to find inspiration in books, music and movement, and enjoy helping others find healing through their unique passions and strengths.
