My Approach to Helping

Now More than Ever we Need a Hopeful Attitude. Hope is the Belief that Anything is Possible. I specialize in tools proven to manage anxiety, reduce depression and create better communication and renewed trust in your relationships. I offer you a compassionate heart, an open-mind and a hopeful spirit- encouraging you in expressing your concerns of today and your dreams for the future in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental environment.
Together we will create a plan which will focus on:
Your Goals for your Best Life and Your Most Loving Relationships
Improving the Areas of Your life which you identify as Roadblocks
Helping you to Uncover and Resolve those Earlier Life Experiences which may be keeping you from your best, most empowered self.
In my work, I use evidence-based strategies, ideas and tools from various schools of thought and tailor them for your specific needs. You are the expert in your life! I believe you know what you want and I believe you can create a doable plan and implement tools to achieve a life filled with the anticipation of good things and relationships that empower you and empower your loved ones. Hope is the Belief that Anything is Possible

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Sometimes life can be very challenging. And we can be proud. Myself included... But what I have found, through my personal life and through my work is the difficult times have been the catalyst for amazing growth and change. The difficult times can create a crack in our formidable exteriors (masks) allowing us to explore a new level of openness and vulnerability. Vulnerability (ugh!) is the key to taking risks, trying something new, learning new ways to communicate, being honest with ourselves, conscious parenting and living the life we envisioned. I also believe that vulnerability is not all that bad- maybe even kind of fun- and once you try it, your life and relationships tend to get better if you remain open to the journey. Have hope in what is possible.
