I believe the therapy process involves forming a relationship with someone who you can share with and trust. A third party who wont judge you, or share/gossip your most intimate secrets or life struggles with others. It's nice having friends and or family to share with, but that isn't always an option, nor is it always safe. I provide my clients with an environment free from judgement where you can let your guard down, vent, share and just be you. Therapy doesn't mean there's something wrong with you, it means you're ready to grow and better understand yourself, others and hopefully life. Isn't that what we're all striving for?

Are you struggling in your relationships? Is it challenging for you to be vulnerable with your family/partner? Are you stuck in patterns of behaviors and thoughts that are perpetuated by society and culture? Do the lack of confidence and self-esteem hinder you from having the kind of relationships you want to have? Increasing intimacy in relationships, building a strong family culture and ethic, and helping parents build upon their strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit is the work that I love doing and find extremely rewarding.

Hello and thank you for stopping by. It is wonderful that you are seeking help. I realize it is also somewhat scary and unnerving to select a therapist. It is important to find someone who specializes in the issues you are facing. More significant, I believe, is having a strong connection with your therapist. To know she or he understands where you are coming from and where you ultimately need to go allows for a satisfying, safe, and beneficial therapeutic experience.

We all come from different walks of life and have different experiences. I want to listen to and understand your story. I believe the most lasting change comes when clients help set their treatment goals and are invested in the process of achieving those goals. I believe therapy should be a safe, non-judgmental space for you communicate needs (big and small), and we work together to address those needs. It is a place to feel trusted, heard, and validated. There will be times when therapy is uncomfortable and change is hard, but I will be there to support you and guide you every step of the way.
