My therapeutic approach is best described by the following quote: "You are perfect just as you are, and there is always room for improvement" - Shunryu Suzuki. In my opinion, no one knows you better than you know yourself. I also believe that you possess the inherent strength and skills needed to implement any adjustments you want to make in your life. I will provide the setting, tools, and professional guidance to help you explore your circumstances and use your skills effectively.

I have provided mental health services for over 10 years. My areas of expertise include trauma, health psychology, child and family work, and solution focused treatment. My counseling style is collaborative, respectful, and person-centered. I will work closely with you and provide the support you need to reach your therapeutic goals. If you want to make positive changes in a compassionate and nonjudgmental environment, please give me a call to me today!
