My Approach to Helping
"The best way to predict the future is to create it." That statement is at the heart of therapy. So often we are defined by what has happened to us and we get stuck living in a space filled with regret, heartache and frustration. You don't have to live in that space. Your current search for a therapist is a wonderfully bold and courageous step toward creating your future. The role of a therapist is to help you unlock your innate ability to heal, forgive, grow and prosper in the life you wish to build.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." (Carl Jung) If you're like me, you've got stuff from your past that has shaped and molded your personality and decisions, oftentimes, on a level you're not fully aware of. You might be aware of the experiences you've endured, just maybe not so much how those experiences have impacted you. Most of us have insight into what isn't working in our lives. Most of us are aware that there are things we want to be different, better, and more satisfying. And, most of us, never do a thing about it! That's where psychotherapy can help. Finding someone who has the training, experience, and skills to help you unpack, process, and repack the stuff in your life that is limiting your potential is the key to a life full of healthier relationships, increased self-awareness, and greater mastery over your thoughts and behaviors. Doesn't that sound awesome?!?
My Role as a Therapist
Our clients know us as non-judgmental, open-minded, and understanding. We strive to understand the world from our clients' perspectives. We aim to establish a respectful, trusting therapeutic relationship. We build upon this foundation, moving forward together to help you address the issues you bring to the session.
