Let's Connect (289) 212-6894
My ideal client is anyone that may be struggling with their mood, or are in a difficult life stage that they need help navigating. Whether you are a child with separation anxiety, an adolescent or young adult going through a break up or a first time parent. I welcome clients who have specific goals for therapy and know what they want to work on. I also welcome clients who have no idea what goal setting is or how to set goals. I encourage the very brave and courageous clients who are skeptical about therapy and aren’t quite sure what they can gain from therapy or how they can benefit.
I can help you by creating the space to share how you feel, without worrying about being judged or feel like you are burdening anyone. I encourage a narrative approach to therapy, where you tell me how you feel, we explore past history, and can use this to gain momentum and learn new skills to do things differently! Therapy is an investment in yourself!
It is my goal to provide a safe space free of judgement and bias for you to feel comfortable sharing parts of your life story with me. I promise to conduct therapy sessions with kindness and compassion, drawing on evidence based therapeutic techniques in conjunction with my clinical expertise and your values and goals to guide our therapy sessions.

I am interested in treating those struggling with interpersonal challenges, and the impact this has on our mood. Working on setting healthy boundaries, learning about our communication/attachment styles or how to get our needs met. If you are going through a life transition or an adjustment period, perhaps you just welcomed a new baby or you are an empty nester on the road to retirement.
