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, lying breathless in the corner. These people 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? By having lived lots of lives and done lots of things, I've developed a unique perspective. One that has allowed me to develop a one-of-a-kind strategy that mixes therapeutic techniques found in human services and combines them with the results-oriented coaching and leadership skills derived from the professional services field. This specific meld of mojo enables me to provide a different kind of service and help where other help may have been unsuccessful.

Different than therapy

Look. I get it. In many cases, I've actually been there myself. And in those cases that I haven't, I have a wealth of knowledge and exposure to make up for it. I'm not saying you have to have someone who has been through what you've been through. But sometimes, it helps. It helps to know someone out there gets it. Like, really gets it.  Here, there is no judgment. There is no should. There is just what is. And of that which is, we together can make better.
