""Without a struggle, there can be no progress." ~ F. Douglass. It takes courage and strength for people to admit they are going through more than they can handle. If you are going through something difficult, you don't have to go through it alone. Therapy is a space where it's safe to share and reflect upon thoughts, feelings and challenges you face. My job as a therapist is to ensure my clients feel understood and that they learn skills & tools to manage challenges that may come up in life. I am here to support you through it."

"There are times when we need to feel extra support, and when an outside view helps us to gain clarity and insight. Other times, we may want a guide to help us dig deeper into past issues in order to transform and grow. I listen to my clients and together we decide the pace of therapy. I create a comfortable environment that encourages growth and self acceptance. Developing a relationship based on trust, safety and compassion helps my clients to identify and address obstacles to inner strength."

"Feelings of anxiety and depression are signals. They are NOT your fault. They tell us about unresolved and repressed feelings originating from painful situations - past or present. They usually occur either in the work arena or in relationships or both. Unresolved events can block development and subsequently produce a sense of despair. I specialize in getting to the 'root' of issues; helping to resolve that which has not been adequately dealt with, thereby facilitating development to resume."
