My Approach to Helping

I am a therapist who will work in partnership with you to help find the balance, contentedness, and fulfillment in life you deserve. I utilize a collaborative, empathetic approach while not shying away from occasionally challenging you in a way that respects you as an individual. You may currently be feeling lost or overwhelmed by the current state of the world and your place in it. Or you may not know why you are feeling the way you are. This is absolutely normal and as a team, we can find ways to uncover and resolve these feelings.

More Info About My Practice

If you feel like reaching out to schedule an appointment and continue the journey do not hesitate to email me to schedule a phone call consultation free of charge.
