" I am passionate about helping you become the empowered person you want to be while acknowledging and celebrating your present inner wisdom and resilience. Our life experiences and relationships can lead us to question our own perception and we may stray further from trusting our intuition. Due to the things we have had to endure, it can be hard to connect or feel like we can share our voice, thoughts, and feelings with others. The messages we receive throughout our lives may exaggerate the need to hide our true selves and we become more confused and lost. "

"I have had the privilege of witnessing people undergo the slow, extremely subtle and remarkable journey of healing and self-transformation. This process of psychological growth is astoundingly complex, multilayered, circular and even mysteriously numinous in its unfolding. My philosophy as a therapist is primarily on core transformation rather than merely symptom management and needless to say, I strongly believe in the centrality of the therapeutic relationship as a significant healing agent. Moving towards our wholeness necessitates the courage to first move into the wounded parts that we all have as members of the human species."
