My Approach to Helping

You have been trying to work through life’s challenges on your own for quite some time. Family and friends think you are “fine”, but deep inside you are struggling to get through the day to day without breaking down. You are overwhelmed and exhausted by the demands of life while juggling the emotions that are impacting your well-being. You have been trying hard to change the way you feel, but things don’t seem to be any different no matter what you do.

My approach is humanistic and person-centered, individualized to fit the specific needs & goals of each of my clients. You will be welcomed with unconditional positive regard & a safe space to share your feelings and fears. You don’t have to walk this quiet road alone anymore. Let's get you back to having peace and meaningful connection in life.
