Therapy is a path to change, growth and healing so you can live the life you want. Our lives turn in unexpected ways, at times it causes us anxieties and discomfort. As we all face emotional and professional conflicts that leave us feeling lonely, unfulfilled or stuck, it's hard to keep hope when you feel trapped by longstanding patterns in your relationships, thoughts, or career. I believe that change is possible. Psychotherapy speaks in many voices. In a safe and non-judgmental environment, my aim is to help you understand the roadblocks, both past and present, impacting your actions and feelings.

Someone once said, "The decision to ask for help is not easy and requires courage." Sometimes it is both challenging and absolutely terrifying to invite a perfect stranger into one's space that doesn't appear to be as "put together" as we would like, especially when what has one "falling apart" is substance use. I am of the belief that with a focused mind, determined spirit, and faith, there is no trip DOWN you can't fall UP from.
