I've had the great pleasure of helping hundreds of singles find love.  What a joy it is to watch my clients move from isolation to first kisses, new relationships, and blissful engagements.  

I enjoy helping perfectionistic introverts build confidence and overcome dating anxiety.  Many of my clients are "adult children" who learned to take care of others before themselves while growing up in dysfunctional homes.  I utilize trauma-informed, attachment-oriented, relational approaches to help my clients find greater ease and authentic connections in the modern dating landscape.
