As we walk through our lives, experiences and relationships shape us. Life shapes us. Think back to a time in your life when you dealt with something difficult - maybe a new job; a divorce or infidelity; a child becoming a teenager; or a new baby. Or maybe life just didn?t feel the way that it should. Were you taught how to deal with the everyday challenges of life? Many of us were not.

So we learn to pack it away.

That?s where I help. I help you learn how to better handle the relationship struggles, communication issues, juggling of emotions or just feeling better and stronger.

My Role as a Therapist

My personal experiences of being adopted and a trauma survivor have given me the chance to connect with others in a genuine and authentic way. I use my style of gentle curiosity, compassion and engagement to learn your story as we find a way through your issues together.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

It was difficult for me to decide to see a therapist. My own struggles were a part of my makeup that I thought it would never get better. My experiences shaped me and made me who I was so why change that? But therapy helped. It gave me the space to look at my experiences with different eyes, a different perspective. It allowed space to heal. It was a challenge but it provided a way through. My struggles have given me the patience, the passion, the kindness and the strength to offer you hope and help. I look forward to hearing your story.
