During my life, I've come to notice that opportunities present themselves frequently, but it's about the desire for the acceptance of change, or the fear in doing so that makes the difference. One must have the ability to want to change and better themselves. I've allowed myself to seize every moment, despite any circumstances in front of me, and I encourage you to do the same. If you can't on your own, I am here to help you by building the mental framework that is needed, so you can acquire all of your dreams and goals.

I am a therapist who believes strongly that talk therapy sometimes just isn't enough. Sometimes when a person experiences difficulties in life, their defenses can often get in the way. This is especially true when you are a child, have experienced trauma, or struggle with Eating Disorders. Sandplay therapy and other approaches can help break-down those barriers and promote healing.

When one experiences trauma, it is possible that how they relate to others may change. I strongly believe that relationships; how we relate and interact with others, is the cornerstone of healthy living. What is left unresolved from one's history or childhood often finds its way into the relationships one has in the present. As a family therapist, I spend my time supporting individuals and families in exploring these past experiences that have made them into who they are now, allowing them to move forward and live a healthy lifestyle.
