"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."

"Saying that "everything is fine" when you're actually hurting takes a toll. My office is a place where you get to bring the messy, unfiltered, and stuck parts of you. The parts you hide from everyone else. You get to take off the mask. All of you is welcome. There are so many things today that can leave us feeling disconnected, exhausted, overwhelmed, and stuck. Often, we carry with us our past fears, wounds, and painful experiences. And that keeps us in a place of stress, anxiety, and avoidance. It can sometimes feel like everyone else has it all figured out. Like you’re the only one who is unsure of who you are and what you want. "
