Grief, life transitions, relationship struggles, depression, and anxiety are just a few of the issues we can experience throughout our lives. We all need someone who can give us sound, unbiased, and healthy advice to help us feel that we are able to cope and not allow our circumstances to dictate our mental health. We all want to live our best lives now. I am a solution-focused therapist and will work to give you the tools necessary to manage your problem situations."

"You're here for a reason. You have likely been trying your hardest to pull things together, but regardless of the constant effort, you feel lost, hopeless, and overwhelmed. It can seem as though frustration and despair are becoming a usual part of getting through each day, and the hope that this will all just go away is fading. You may not believe this right now, but a life of fulfillment and balance IS possible. I've seen it first-hand. And if you find a therapist you truly connect with and trust, you can actually begin to break apart what's been dragging you down so you can focus on what's most important to you in your life. "
