My Approach to Helping
Life is a journey from the moment of conception to our passing breath. Along our journey we experience transitions. Often we move from one phase of life into another without the slightest bump. Occasionally, however, as we make our way, we experience difficulties. It is within these times of challenge where we find our greatest moments of growth and personal accomplishments. Times of struggle do not define who we are, but rather what we do with the experience defines what we will become. This is the good stuff and you do not need to navigate it alone. At The Lotus Effect Counseling & Studio we provide therapeutic services focused on guidance, understanding and support. Acknowledging that people have different needs, occasionally requiring a creative touch to reach a desired goal. With an emphasis on solution focused methods, we strive to assist you and your family in creating the life you envision. A life filled with inspiration and meaning, everyday.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
What I love the most about being a therapist is the opportunity to be present with others as they successfully move through changes and challenges in their lives. I feel it is an honor to be welcomed into the interpersonal life of another human being.
