My Approach to Helping
I believe that at the root of most human struggles, are challenges in relationships, leading to struggles with anxiety, depression etc.... We are relational beings, needing intimate connection to others. I am convinced that through the therapy process I can help you experience improvements in relationships, leading to a happier, healthier and more fulfilled life. I believe that therapy is a safe place for you to be whoever they are right now, no matter how bad you may be feeling about yourself or your life. It is in this place where you are able to be vulnerable and admit your struggles, that you will be able to face your true self, accept yourself as you are, and then grow to become all that want to be! I believe in the inherent value of human life. No matter what your struggle, background, belief system, or behavior, with me you will find a safe place to work on yourself andor your family.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
It means you are human. I heard a wise person once say that all of us are on the spectrum of psychological disorders. Yes, its true, even therapists have struggles, and that's why even therapists go to therapy. In fact, one of the requirements of our training is to attend therapy for a period of time so we can experience what it is like being a client.
It takes humility and courage to attend therapy, to face yourself, and be vulnerable to another person who is initially a stranger to you. But therapy is powerful because it allows you to partner with someone else, someone who is outside of your perspective, that can come alongside you and support you in exploring your needs and struggles. With a therapist, you get the opportunity to look at things through some different perspectives you have never thought of before, you have someone who can support you through the change process and be there for you when things are hard, when failure happens, when you need to laugh or cry. Therapy is both a difficult and wonderful process at the same time, and that is why everyone that goes to therapy is courageous!
