Deciding to see a therapist and looking within takes courage. Congratulate yourself for taking this step.

I can help you make lasting change so you not only overcome your current problems but become stronger and wiser on the other side.

My approach is holistic, integrating mind, body and spirit. My style is direct (I'll tell you what I think), intuitive (I trust my intuition and will help you trust yours), and with a touch of humor (it always helps to lighten your spirit.)

There's no "one size fits all" therapy, so together we'll decide what works best for you.

I'm a licensed psychotherapist and a certified life coach so I'll integrate both sets of skills in our work together. We'll explore your past when necessary to help you break free from self-sabotaging patterns and limiting beliefs. I'll also help you create a vision for your future so you have a road map to move forward.

My Therapy Focus

While I use different models of therapy, I also take a spiritual approach and can help you connect with your inner wisdom and intuition. When you trust that inner voice, change happens with greater ease and flow.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

While my clinical training gave me important skills, the most powerful education I received to become a good therapist was my own healing work. I experienced a traumatic loss when I was a child and didn't realize it affected me until early adulthood. Stuck in despair, I reached out for help. What a gift. Trust me... healing happens. I got to the other side. And no matter what is happening in your life right now, hold faith in your heart that you'll get there, too.

Let me know if you'd like my help along your journey.

Take good care,
