My Approach to Helping
With over 15 years of counseling experience, my license, multiple certifications and trainings, enable me to help you deal with life’s problems and feel better faster with long lasting results. I am specifically trained to understand the complexities of interpersonal relationships. My aim is to help you understand the source of your struggles and give you the tools to create meaningful relationships, reach your goals, and improve your life. My approach is collaborative and individualized to your specific needs and strengths. I utilize many evidence based practices to achieve a successful outcome. I use solution focused therapy to get to the core of the issue to help you change self-limiting beliefs and patterns of behavior. Together we’ll develop a range of skills to help you enjoy life again, create real meaning and happiness in your relationships, and tap into your inner strength and wisdom.
I am a warm, caring, empathetic, and professional therapist and life coach with a personality and list of skills that sets me apart. Clients appreciate my genuineness, direct approach, and the ability to be real in sessions. I provide personalized services in a private, non-judgemental setting.
Clients have often said, “I wish I found you sooner!” “I’ve felt stronger and more confident with just a few sessions with you, compared to years spent with another therapist,” “You’ve helped us fall in love again,” “You’ve given me the courage to start dating again and really focus on finding my soulmate.”
