People choose therapy for different reasons whether it be coping with life transitions, dealing with grief, or even a traumatic event that has occurred. Even though the road may be scary, you don't have to go it alone. My goal as a therapist is to build a collaborative relationship with you in order to help you cope and find hope.

Entering therapy is difficult and may often happen when we are at our most vulnerable emotionally and experiencing dissatisfaction with our current life situation. Acknowledging and respecting the self as powerful creates a therapeutic environment that is compassionate, collaborative, and empowering.
