"I became a psychotherapist to help support others through life's challenges. From relationships to family to career, life can be a roller coaster of events. I believe that creating some space in your life, even just one hour a week, can be very beneficial to your health and overall well being. As the saying goes when flying on an airplane, "...make sure to put the oxygen mask on yourself first before attempting to help others around you." This is crucial. If you are not well, how can you help take care of those around you?"

"You want to find balance, peace, and joy in your life again. Maybe you're stretched too thin by working 12 hour days and 2 hour commutes. Or, maybe, you feel like you have lost a part of yourself because you are always taking care of family and friends. Or, maybe you feel like you are letting people down and not living up to the high bar you set for yourself. At the end of the day, you do not have much left to give. Your relationship is on auto-pilot and you cannot remember the last time you truly felt you were living the life you always imagined for yourself."
