My Approach to Helping

I am a relationship and trauma expert. I work with those who struggle with depression, anxiety, stress or just feeling overwhelmed who would like to feel more relaxed and report satisfaction in all areas of their life.

What separates me from others is my background in the treatment of trauma and attachment. I work with you as a team and really listen and understand your specific needs. Rather than spending years in therapy and getting nowhere, I will work with you step by step in order to achieve your goals and because of this, you will see the results you are looking for much sooner.

Best of all therapy pays for itself, in the end, you will have more clarity and be able to begin focusing on what's important to you with fewer interferences.

More Info About My Practice

I believe therapy is a tool everyone can use at some point in their lives. Often times this is during a time of transition, something new in your life may bring up feelings of fear, sadness, or even anger. It is important throughout our lives to continue to seek and find meaning in whatever way makes sense to you.

Relationships are an important part of our lives, so what do you do when the person you love has a negative impact on you or when that person is no longer the person they once were? Therapy can help. Just because you seek therapy doesn't mean there is something "wrong" with you. Therapy is a tool which can be used to gain insights as well as learn new ways to cope.

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

In today's society, we are all faced with a lot of demands. Most people juggle one if not many of the following parts of life, work, marriage, childcare, finances, aging parents andor health issues just to name a few. This is a lot to manage and can sometimes feel overwhelming. Therapy is a way to utilize an impartial, nonjudgmental, professional, who can help find new ways of resolving the difficulties that you have not previously considered. This means that even if you have lots of support in your life, lots of friends and family, and are financially stable and happily married, you can still utilize the services of a therapist.
