My Therapy Focus

I work from a coaching and therapy perspective to help people with career and relationship problems achieve mastery over their frustrations, confusion and problems. I focus on one's strengths: the talents, skills, passions, dreams and unique personal qualities that are the springboard to the life you seek.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life. While you may successfully navigate through most difficulties you face, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to improve your situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.
