Announcement icon I'm on leave and no longer accepting new clients, but check our website as there are several other therapists in our practice that can help!
**See our website for other therapists accepting new clients** I am mental health therapist as well as a multi-faith spiritual and religious care provider (also known as a chaplain). My strength is working with anyone's faith and spirituality to help them with their mental health and spiritual journey. I work with all faiths and religious. In my practice, I see each client as a complex and unique person with stories, worldviews, and challenges. My goal is to aid you in accessing your inner resources such as the experiences you cultivate from your stories and the beliefs that find root in your worldviews to cope with challenges.
As a spiritual care provider, I take a wholistic approach that does not shy away from integrating religious or spiritual beliefs to maximize your wellbeing. Using tools such as narrative therapy and meditation among many others, I can assist you in accepting the past, understanding the present, and moving forward toward the future.
For more information about my professional training, feel free to visit our website. If you have questions for me, do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email. You can book a free 15 minute phone consultation on our site, as well as book sessions. If I am not the right for you, I would be happy to help you find the right fit.
