I view therapy as a process that can facilitate healing and change, as well as understanding and fulfillment. Whether stuck in a conflicted relationship, feeling lost, struggling with depression or anxiety, adjusting to a transition or life change, feeling unable to break unhealthy patterns or resolve past issues and pain, it can be difficult to know where to start. Together, we can explore the issues you face and identify the direction you want your life to take and the steps needed to get you there. Once established, our relationship can provide the foundation and safety for this process.

I am your last stop. If life has disappointed you. If you are depleted. If you are lost. If your relationship is hopelessly leaving you unsatisfied. If your partner is complaining about your internal emotional desert. If you are one step from calling it quits or calling the lawyer. If you are out of ideas at how to make life and relationship work. If therapy has not worked for you in the past ... ... get ready. Your story can take a different turn. Give me a call and let's get started giving you the life - and the relationship - you desire and you deserve. I can help you have more and better.

I believe in basing our therapeutic relationship on acceptance, genuineness, and empathy. I work with all types of people--children, adolescents, and adults--who are struggling with the external, internal, or both in a non-judgmental, strengths-based, trauma-informed manner.

It is normal to be an imperfect being. Everyone has struggles, low moments, or even sometimes have to divert off course due to unexpected life events. But when its your own thoughts and feelings that are impeding your ability to achieve what you define as "satisfaction" in life- you must take the time to stop, reflect, and possibly change either your approach or alter your perspective. Feel free to book a consultation. However, you do not have to engage a consultation to schedule an in person session. https://www.timetrade.com/book/3FLKG
