"I believe that all people were born with positive potential. Unfortunately, due to all kinds of hurt that happens in life, we unconsciously build layers of protection onto our inner Self, blocking our ability to see things clearly, and limit our capacity to respond to daily life in a healthy and constructive way. I believe that your true Self knows what the loving and meaningful life path is for yourself. I am committed to being a Compassionate, Curious, Creative, Confident, Calm, Clear, and Courageous guide to assist you to grow toward a better sense of well-being either for short term, or long term therapy to know yourself better."

Although we may flounder or experience failure, we can develop the strategies needed to live a flourishing life. Integrative therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Positive Psychotherapy, and Solution Focused Therapy teach us how to live well."
