Good Health is more than the absence of disease; it is a state of living fully in our vitality. In my many years that I have worked in the mental health field, I have learned that there's no "right" way to live a fulfilling life and that therapy is an essential element to achieving a deeper state of health and vitality. Through therapy, we understand our individual desires and patterns that create frustrating and discouraging experiences. I will work with you to create a safe space that will provide a platform for your development of a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

More Info About My Practice

I have a deep awareness of the potential for every human to overcome life challenges. For 18+ years I have worked with adults with a full range of mental health and life concerns where I am repeatedly witnessing the resilience of the human spirit. Areas I can help with include anxiety, depression, difficulty with relationships or coworkers, recovering from a traumatic experience, life transitions, worry, self-esteem and events from early childhood. I will work with you to explore and meet your goals in a safe, compassionate environment where I will use evidence-based interventions that support your journey to a more joyful, meaningful life.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

In some people's opinion, therapy is problem-oriented or solely focused on a diagnosis or being "rid" of symptoms. In my experience, the essence of who an individual is can be lost in that problem-oriented environment and I strive to provide a different experience that allows for a fuller, deeper expression of oneself. I personally have had my journey in therapy and have noticed the range of personality and styles, and I've had some interesting experiences!
Research has shown that the most effective therapy occurs when it's a "good fit" so, if you've had a negative experience with a therapist, please consider giving it another try and let's see if we'd be a good fit for your journey into therapy.
