My Approach to Helping

Sometimes you feel so alone and overwhelmed. You have conflicts with your romantic partner or friends, workschool is always a challenge and raising kids is no joke. Or maybe love and career haven't taken off in the way you have hoped and you are grieving and trying to find your way forward. Maybe you see your child struggling and want a trusted professional to help your child to heal and flourish. You want someone in your corner looking at the problems with you. You want to feel better so that you can show up in life for yourself and for the people you love the most.

I would love to help you grow in the understanding and care of your own emotions as well as the way you relate with the important people in your life. It would be a privilege to hold your trust as you work through stress or loss and learn new insights and skills to feel better now and to take with you for the future.

Not every therapist is a good match for every client. One of the best predictors of positive outcomes in therapy is the trust and connection you feel with your provider. Call or email me for a free no obligation 15 minute consultation so that I can get a sense of what you would like help with and you can feel out if you think I may be the right fit for you. I look forward to hearing from you!
