Psychotherapy is not about me being an expert on what's wrong with you and how your living. It is about creating collaborative & supportive experiences that facilitate changing how "The Problem" captures your life,
hides your values, blurs your goals, challenges your
self-esteem, and occupies
your dreams.

More Info About My Practice

Are there problems that are keeping you from experiencing life the way you want? Are your dreams, hopes, values and desires hiding in the shadows. Has an event in your life shifted how you once knew yourself? My work as a therapist is grounded in the belief that no one is a problem, but rather problems are influencing you. Problems like: anxiety, depression, stress, communication, grief, life transitions, addiction & others change the way you see yourself, your relationships and your future. We will work together to build skills, resources & insight to change the space Problems occupy in your life.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

I am a therapist because I want you to have a safe place to be yourself without any judgment, to be heard and be believed. I treat everyone with dignity, respect, and curiosity. I want to collaborate with you to experience, discuss and view whatever you come to me with as a story line that can be re-written.
