"Navigating your way through the ups and downs of life isn't always easy but can be done better with some help along the way. I take a holistic approach to each person to help you deal with your challenges and worries, your dreams and nightmares, and your health and wellbeing in both your relationships with yourself and with others. Sometimes changes in personalities and expressions of oneself can seem confusing as we experience the many emotions in life and the reactions they bring as we work on healing the traumas within ourselves and in our relationships with others at home, at work, and in our families, schools and communities."

Not every person benefits from the same treatment. For this reason I hold an eclectic orientation, including but not limited to: CBT, DBT, Emotional focused therapy, Mindfulness, and Relaxation. I believe in goal-setting and strategy building. However, I also understand that sometimes we just need to vent! I believe that every person has the innate ability to resolve their inner conflicts.
