Hello, come on in. It is great to meet you!

I am both naturally empathetic and curious. The combination of these two qualities creates a strong desire to understand the inner workings of every person I meet. Every person has their own story and every story deserves to be listened to with care and curiosity. Therapy can be spent individually, as a family or a couple.
