"*Not currently accepting clients* There is great strength in allowing someone to hold hope for you until you can discover it for yourself. That is my favorite part of therapy-helping people find their own light, strength, and resiliency. People already have all the answers inside of them. My role is to help them find the answers for themselves. I use a combination of evidence-based approaches to help people examine and modify problematic thinking patterns, develop self-awareness and insight, and strengthen their relationships. I respect cultural differences and incorporate them into treatment."

"Sometimes we lose our way in life or we are inhibited by past trauma/grief that can leave us overwhelmed and confused. I believe that you can't always choose your circumstances in life, but you can choose to overcome them. I also believe that you have the power to manage/control your thoughts and feelings instead of allowing them to control you. My goal is to help you work through those past or current issues, overcome those difficult circumstances in life, and to help you gain control over your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in order to help enhance your well-being."

Life is hard and many of us lose our way and this leads to confusion, lonliness and often we develop addictive and maladaptive behaviors to deal with our issues.
