Do you second-guess your past decisions while also dreading the future? Perhaps it’s hard to get going in the morning because you’re not sure what matters anymore. I’m guessing you’ve tried therapy or other treatments which may have helped temporarily, while your life eventually returned to the status quo. I’ve seen many people suffer for too long unnecessarily. That’s what makes me passionate about providing therapy that really makes a difference. I offer effective treatments for anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief, and more. I also support those in the LGBTQ+ community who may deal with these and other challenges.
I want you to feel understood as well as empowered to create a happier, more meaningful life for yourself. I use the most effective therapies available such as CBT and the Gottman Method. I also offer spirit mediumship (separate from therapy) for those dealing with grief, which helps some people feel more peace and connection to their loved one after loss.
Healing isn’t easy. I’ve been there myself and I know it’s often scary and frustrating. But I also know that the right support can be the difference. Many of my clients find more confidence, optimism, and improved relationships within just a few months of therapy, and I believe you can get there too. Contact me to set up a first appointment and get started.
