You are unique in your strengths and in your struggles. Because everyone experiences stress, conflict, sadness, pain, and fear it is not always easy to identify when you or your loved one needs to seek outside support. My goal is to provide a safe space for you to explore the obstacles that have interrupted your life and relationships. Utilizing my training and experience, I will help you learn new ways of coping and relating to others so you can get back on track with newfound insight, strength, and hope.

My Role as a Therapist

My role as a therapist is to empathize, educate and empower. It is my mission to help you overcome the obstacles in life that are causing you to feel overwhelmed or stuck. Together we will set therapeutic goals and establish a plan for daily success.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

Finding the right therapist to support you on your journey of healing and self-discovery is crucial. I will be compassionate, empathetic, and non- judgmental. I will take the time and interest in getting to know you as a whole person, aside from the problem or issue that led you to seek therapy. I will foster an environment of safety, trust, and respect. Lastly, I will use humor, because laughter in itself is healing for the mind, body, and soul.
