Safe passage through pain

You may be moving through life carrying feelings of being overwhelmed, trapped, fearful, angry, sad, or stuck. I provide compassionate, authentic, and nonjudgmental care where you will be heard and understood. Together, we will find safe passage through your pain towards greater understanding and wellbeing.
