My Approach to Helping

I believe that people find comfort in familiarity. In therapy, it is not necessarily the challenging situations that are the same, but the difficult feelings that are universal. The therapeutic relationship can facilitate desired changes in one's life journey.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

What I love about therapy is the ability to learn about so many different walks of life while in the process of helping others.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I have found that wounded healers can be the most effective ones, and that my own life struggles transform into tools to use in the healing process of others.
