My Approach to Helping

Walking down the street, your eyes move like rapid fire. Your brain gets flooded with comparisons leading you down a rabbit hole of scrutiny and self-doubt - “She looks so beautiful. Why don't I look like that?” “He seems so together. Should I change my job and do what he’s doing?” “That girl is so fit. I have to exercise so I can lose weight to be like her.” “That couple just said that they spend every day together. Is it bad that I only see my partner twice a week?” What could be an enjoyable opportunity to people watch becomes your worst nightmare after you decide that everyone else has it right and you’re always falling behind.

When we sit down together, you’ll be in a space of action! I'll help you stop the hateful comparisons, learn to accept yourself and even better, actually like who you are. I’ll offer my killer combination of expert interventions, skills training, humor and compassion. Our work will keep you rooted in your power, so you can set yourself free.

Stop sinking in emotional quicksand. Through our work together, you can and will become your own hero – full of confidence and optimism for your future. Put an end to your worry and doubt by calling me today to book your free, in-depth consultation.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

My specialty is in working with smart, motivated couples and individuals battling the challenges of daily living; the day to day struggles that everyone encounters at some point in their lives - life transitions, anxiety, sadness, hopelessness, low self esteem and confidence, lack of communication skills, loss of intimacy and general couples issues. I work to provide solutions, relief from these struggles and help you to be excited about the life you're living!

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I really admire a client's ability to take steps to improve their life and am privileged to play a small role in your journey from struggle to triumph. For me, the beauty of therapy and my approach specifically, lies in the ability to provide real solutions to real issues. Witnessing your ambition, effort and desire is nothing short of inspirational.
