Sometimes life can feel like a rollercoaster and we need a little help along the way. Working together, we can find solutions to help get you back on track.

I believe that you are the best expert on your life and experiences. As a therapist, I see my role as a guide and supporter. My approach to therapy is solutions-based, which means I believe you have the inner resources and strengths to overcome the challenges that may be bringing you in to therapy. Our work together focuses on the situations or challenges that are getting in your way, so that you can lead a happier, more productive life.

Asking for help can be hard, so I applaud you for taking this first step! Contact me today so we can set up a time to talk briefly over the phone, free of charge, to discuss what's going on and how I might be able to help.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

You're not alone! As with anything that brings about change, the prospect of starting psychotherapy can feel like a relief, but is can also be a bit scary. Overcoming that nervousness is worth it. That's because any time your quality of life isn't quite what you want it to be, psychotherapy can help.

People go to psychotherapy for a variety of reasons. Some people seek psychotherapy because they feel sad, anxious or stressed. Others may have short-term problems they need help navigating. For example, they may be experiencing challenges with a relationship, feeling overwhelmed by a new job, or grieving the loss of a friend or family member.
