PASSION I believe we are all meant to live joyful, balanced, healthy and peaceful lives, but that there are experiences, people, and circumstances that interrupt our pursuit of those things.
From my own journey, I know life can be hard, disappointing and crushing at times. I also know what getting to the light at the end of the tunnel feels and looks like. I understand that you need an open, collaborative, honest and caring space for you to be able to voice your concerns, struggles and needs. From our sessions, I hope you gain:
greater insight into yourself and your relationships with others
an increased sense of self-worth
practical steps to move forward in your life.

ICE BREAKERS Here are some random facts about me:
I can do latte art (from several years working at a local Seattle coffeeshop).
My nickname during college was "Tex" (not because I expressed some great affinity for the state, but because I would buy groceries at Texaco).
In 8th grade, I sang Led Zepplin's "Stairway to Heaven" with about 50 music students playing various instruments behind me.
