Authenticity, transparency, and strength of the therapeutic relationship comes first for my client's and facilitates both learning and growth. In my 2+ decades of experience as a therapist and healer, I have learned that we each walk our own path. There is no "right" or "wrong," there are no regrets, only opportunities for learning, forgiveness, and self-acceptance. In my professional work, I devote my energy toward helping my client's view life challenges as opportunities to become the person they desire to be, to flourish and embrace their life as a life worth living.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love watching people grow and change for the better more than anything in my work world. It is difficult to explain how gratifying helping others can be and I'm so fortunate to have this happen often in my life.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

The relationship is the most important factor that leads to healing and health in therapy. If you don't have a strong connection to your therapist or don't feel comfortable, you probably aren't with the right clinician. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, and discomfort is essential with growth, just not discomfort most of the time or with your therapist.
