My Approach to Helping

Are you looking for a therapist who is empathic & offers a creative, collaborative approach? I would be honored to support you on your journey of personal growth and healing. One of the greatest joys I've had is witnessing clients feel empowered, develop new insights, feel some relief, and begin to thrive in their lives. I believe in you and your ability to get through the toughest storms life may throw your way. I can help you process these difficult experiences, as well as support you in gaining new insight & tools that can help you for a lifetime. I like to tailor my approach to fit your needs & personal goals. We can work together and come up with what works best for you. I offer creative arts to facilitate the growth process, as well as traditional talk therapy, whichever you are most comfortable with. I welcome you to contact me. I look forward to learning more about you and how I can support you on your journey.
