I am a trauma-informed therapist who specializes in self-esteem, anxiety, addiction, loneliness, depression, relationships, dissociation, anger and grief/loss. Change happens when we expand our self-awareness by understanding ourselves. But to understand ourselves, we first need to be understood.

People require help with various issues at some point of their lifes. It could be difficulty making a decision, relationship problems, dissatisfaction with career, financial warries, losses, illness, or injury. Regardless of the magnitude of the problem it is often beneficial to discuss your problem with a professional who may help you to see the issue from a different perspective and to arrive to a satisfactory solution. Some problems require numerous sessions, but sometimes even one or few sessions result in improved mood and self-confidence and help to gain insights that could lead to desired changes.
