I consider the decision to seek help for a personal problem a difficult and courageous step. Helping you in your journey to grow and make changes is important to me. By entering in to a relationship with mutual respect and shared values, I feel we can find the path to self awareness and wellness.

Everyone is different. I will listen closely to your concerns and strive to really understand where you are coming from. My role as a therapist is not to judge you, rather I will be looking to identify ways we can work together to strengthen your ability to cope and make desired changes. I will be gentle while encouraging you to step forward to the challenges in your future. With my guidance and your investment in yourself we can make change a reality.

I hope we have the opportunity to work together. I encourage you to reach out to me. Ask how I can help. You will get honest answers to difficult questions. Let's take the first step together. I hope to hear from you.
