I strongly believe in the power of therapy to heal, foster growth, and help you live a happier, more fulfilling life. I understand how difficulties and challenges can affect your psyche and your spirit ; we can work together to help clarify what is causing you pain, dissatisfaction or unhappiness, and give you tools that will help you work through your specific challenges. My last 26 years have been dedicated to helping people live happier lives. If you want to talk with someone who is non-judgmental, and who will provide gentle insight and honest feedback, I can help you.

If you struggle with depression, anxiety, sexuality issues, loss, addictive behaviors, chronic illness/pain, if you want to be kinder and more compassionate with yourself, if you are experiencing spiritual crisis/ upheaval, having conflicts in your relationship, or If you need help setting and achieving goals, I can help you.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Working with an experienced Therapist can help you clarify your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, and help you better 'align' them. This type of work can help you move in the direction of the life that you want; I look forward to helping you on your unique journey.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

I view myself as part of your 'team'. Our work together is based on your needs, and is geared toward achieving whatever goals you wish to achieve. As we embark together on your journey to healing and growth, I will help guide you in becoming more aware of your feelings, and knowing more about your own unique internal process. Armed with this knowledge and awareness, you will be better equipped to live your life in a way that more fully meets your needs
