My Role as a Therapist

I have helped men, women and teens dealing with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma and low self-esteem for over 16 years. My role as a therapist is to help you develop an awareness around what you are struggling with and create a safe, supportive environment for change and growth to happen.

My goal in working together is that you will begin to feel relief of your symptoms in the short term. Then in the long term I would like see you have resolve over the root causes of your feelings.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

I understand that this process may be new and difficult for you. You have done the first (and most important) step of reaching out for help. Together we will keep taking one step at a time, at a pace that feels comfortable for you. If it feels more comfortable for you to reach out via email initially that is perfectly fine!
