Services That Meet Your Needs


Individual Therapy

This is your time to explore what you want to achieve.   I see my job as being present with you and whatever you bring.   My roles include guide, facilitator, and supportive teacher while demystifying the therapeutic process. Sessions offered in person or by video conference.


Couples Counseling

Relationships inevitably hit challenges.  As an experienced counselor and mediator, I can help you communicate about the hard topics as well as incorporate new skills and insights to make your day-to-day relationship life more fulfilling.


Peace Making Services

Offering mediation, individual conflict and communication coaching, as well as restorative processes appropriate for colleagues (including co-workers/ bosses and employees), co-parents, adult siblings, parent-adult children, roommates, work teams, and others. I do transformative mediation which focuses on helping parties understand each other more deeply and explore solutions for going forward.  With over 14 years of professional experience in the conflict resolution field supporting individuals and teams in work and academic environments, I can customize options for you or your team.
