Before becoming a therapist and coach I earned a law degree but didn't become a lawyer, worked in development and then case management at a homeless shelter, I ran HR and accounting for the US branch of an international corporation, and I owned and operated a mid-sized moving company with my husband. These experiences have shaped my approach in a variety of ways but most importantly they taught me humility and I bring that to every session. I would describe my style as compassionate and supportive, but also no-nonsense and goal oriented. Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry, and sometimes we throw around a few f-bombs. This is hard work and I don't want my clients dreading appointments so I work to make the process as approachable as possible.
