"Making the decision to seek help is the the first step towards living a healthier, happier life. The second step is finding the right therapist. I believe that success in therapy is dependent on the strength of the relationship between the counselor and client. I view myself as an advocate, a catalyst for change, and an objective sounding board, rather than an expert who can listen to your problems for an hour and then magically know how to run your life better than you do. You are the expert on you! My job is to help you learn how to help yourself."

"Maybe you're feeling stuck. Maybe you are seeking answers but not able to see through the darkness. Maybe peace feels impossible. Maybe you're questioning who you are or going through a life transition. Maybe it's your relationship or parenting or past hurts. This life experience is filled with highs, lows, and in-between moments. At times, we all want someone to join in our journey and walk alongside us so we can feel supported. I am here to meet you where you are in your life right now. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe that all of life is relational, whether that is within or outside with family, friends, society."

"There lies within you a deep well of courage and strength, far greater than you can even imagine. We all have times of struggle, pain, and confusion in our lives- sometimes it happens all of a sudden and turns our world upside down, sometimes it is accumulated in layer upon layer and we wonder if it's even possible to get to a place of thriving when surviving is all we can remember ever knowing how to do. Sometimes life seems to be okay - pretty good even - but you have decided that you want more than just "okay"."
