"Where there is great love, there are always miracles"
I value human connection and recognize its importance in creating happy, fulfilling relationship. I understand first hand some of the challenges and opportunities for growth that come with romantic and familial relationships. Through my work and lived experience, I have gained knowledge about myself and my relationship with others. I have a deep knowledge of people, their pain points and the factors that contribute to growth and transformation. I use my experience with individuals, couples and families to help people to co-create more satisfying relationships.
