My Approach to Helping

Life nowadays is stressful and complicated and sometimes we can "get stuck" and feel that there is no way out. I believe that God wants better for us and that we have a natural inclination to move towards health. Come into my office which is a safe and quiet space and over a cup of coffee we can make a plan to have life work better for you. Many times we carry losses and grief that we never recovered from and these "ghosts from the past" still haunt us robbing us of joy and peace. To me psychotherapy is a privilege to practice and I would be honored to work with you.
