Because traditional therapy doesn't work for everyone

Most of my clients come to see me because they just know life should be better. It HAS to be. For many people who walk through my door, their lives aren't shattered. They get up every single day and get through. But somehow, somewhere, something is off. Maybe it's your relationship. Maybe it's you. Maybe you don't know what it is, but life just doesn't seem right. You're not fully happy. Not yet.

​I help couples, families, and individuals make life better. How? I focus on systemic reconstruction, not just symptom reduction. Systemic changes, the kinds that come from deep within your core, promote more sustainable forms of well-being. I've developed  a one-of-a-kind strategy that mixes therapeutic techniques found in human services and combines them with a results-oriented approach and leadership focus derived from the professional services field. This specific meld enables me to provide a different kind of service and help where others may have been unsuccessful.

Here, there is no judgment. There is no should. There is just what is. And of that which is, we together can work to make better.
