Are you feeling stressed out, down or anxious? Are you experiencing grief from a significant loss in your life? Are you struggling with some kind of addiction? Are you having issues in your personal relationships? Or maybe you are doing okay and you would like to do even better?

Negative life events can really be a challenge to all of us. My approach to therapy is very strength-based, compassionate and client centered. I am aware that you know yourself best. I am no expert on who you are and what you have been through, but I am an expert on ways to cope, interpersonal dynamics and common pitfalls we all can fall into as humans.

I believe a strong therapeutic relationship involves working together to reach the goals that are important to you. Being someone who has been through hard times myself, I provide a place of empathy and understanding; being a gentle guide, a sounding board, or voice of compassionate accountability if needed.
