My Approach to Helping

What if you could make your life the way you want it to be? Would you like to overcome loneliness, self-doubt, anxiety, fear of failure, hopelessness, relationship difficulties? Many times our discontent in the present is tethered to traumatic events in our past. If you suffered trauma as a child or as an adult, chances are you have adapted and survived but you may not be currently thriving. The deeper the wounding, the more profound the negative impacts can be in your present life. The miracle of therapy offers you the power to rewrite your past and reprogram your future.

My passion is to help you recover and thrive in key areas of your life, including personal growth, work goals, and relationships. I practice an integrative approach that is tailored to your unique needs and goals. We will work collaboratively in a safe and supportive environment to heal past wounds and lay a new foundation for a better future.

No matter what you have been through or where you are at now, I can help you find a way forward. You don't have to settle for less or remain stuck in your destructive patterns. Call me now for a free consultation and we can discuss the challenges you are currently facing and plan a path forward.

More Info About My Practice

Therapy is all about exploring your personal experience and how your past is affecting your current experience. We will share back and forth - your story mixed with relevant and current psychoeducation. Much more than tools, you will also learn about yourself - your thoughts and emotions and what drives your behavior.
