Culturally Sensitive

Inviting all spiritual, cultural and sexual orientations

Therapy Services for

Individuals

Individual sessions can provide opportunity for an individual to work on areas such as grief, loss, depression, addiction, stress, anger, anxiety, denial, transitions, boundaries and more.

GROUPS

Group sessions can offer new insight into relational dynamics when numerous people are involved, such as in a church, family, office or organization.  This can lead to greater cohesiveness, communication and productivity.

Couples / Families

Couples and Families sessions can offer safety in learning new ways in which to communicate and relate to one another, to gain greater connection and awareness.  All spiritual, cultural and sexual orientations are welcome. 

I work collaboratively with my clients, offering guidance, support,  encouragement and motivation to make life changes.
