I have a strong belief in the healing process of therapy and have worked for over 20 years supporting people who are in psychological and emotional pain. I help people find stability and reconnect with themselves, as they do the important work of reclaiming and changing their life for the better. Whether you have thought about trying therapy for a long time, perhaps it's a brand new idea, or even if you have done some "healing" work in the past and feel like it is time to tackle new challenges - I am here to help.

Our mind can be our greatest resource and at times our worst enemy. Managing the unhealthy chatter of our mind can prove to be our greatest challenge. Unhelpful responses to our thoughts, feelings and life situations can cause anxiety and depression problems as well the reliance on unhealthy habits in an attempt to cope. My approach focuses on learning to effectively managing our thoughts, feelings and relationships and on living life in a manner consistent with your values. I welcome the opportunity to work with individuals to overcome difficulties, to achieve goals and to create a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

As Carl Rogers quoted “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” I believe we sometimes need a safe and trusting space to understand our inner struggles and recognize ways to cope. I see my professional role as helping individuals recognize their own strengths and beauty by being present with them in their mental health journey.
