My Approach to Helping

As a therapist with 15+ years of experience, in addition to experiences of my own, I have learned that life has a way of coming at us in the most unpredictable, unimaginable ways. As such, it makes the most "put-together-person" crumble. It happens to most of us and that's what makes us human. We make mistakes, we fall down, we get hurt, life is messy, and it gets to be too much and is seemingly unmanageable for us. With some help, we will go through the process of rebuilding, stand back up, and then become stronger than we were before.

If you are feeling overwhelmed, scared, angry, confused, alone, helpless, worthless, stressed, lost, sad.... you've come to the right place. I value meeting clients where they are at and then moving forward. I believe in providing support and direction to clients that lead them to self-discovery and empowerment. I strive to be a positive influence in your life to create a strong relationship while building trust and providing encouragement when facing life’s challenges along with you.

What are you waiting for? The perfect time or opportunity? That time is now. Take that next step and reach out! I'll be waiting on the other side to take those next steps with you. Until then, take care!
