Upon returning to the United States, she has worked as a therapist in private practice and also in a private, residential setting.
Fourteen years of witnessing the restorative impact of healthy, life-giving relationships and the traumatic impact of brokenness and cultural depravity around issues related to connection, sex and intimacy, has resulted in a profound appreciation for the importance of true, meaningful connection and intimacy. STRONGER connection|cards are a tool designed for proactively building relationships and interrupting negative patterns of disconnection or false intimacy.
