About

I see clients of all ages and backgrounds, presenting with a wide array of issues and concerns. Some are seeking a long-term therapeutic relationship, and for others, a single session is adequate. Either way, I want to create a safe and productive therapeutic environment for clients to feel comfortable in talking about their lives. I want to collaborate with clients to help them glean a better understanding of their lives, and come up with ways to make it through their day feeling better and more confident in their actions.
It is important that individuals or couples seeking counselling are aware of how "therapy" is done. I take the time at the start to answer all questions and concerns, and then detail how sessions will be done. Sometimes it is helpful to do several sessions in a row to work on a particular issue, while other individuals may want to spread sessions out.
I firmly believe that clients hold the potential to overcome obstacles and barriers in their lives. Often, it is helpful to have a constructive conversation with someone to lay out all of the working pieces in order to "make sense" of their issues. I offer a safe and supportive environment to have these important conversations.
