I am committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for exploring the obstacles that are getting in the way of creating the happy and satisfying life you want.

Therapy is hard work but a worthy work and it is a privilege to be a part of your journey and helping you discover, heal and grow beyond your current circumstances. "

"Kind Compassion is my strength. Self-care and making personal life changes can feel confusing and overwhelming. I love working with clients who face family issues, difficult life events, and want to manage deep emotions. It takes commitment to having a better life and that's what I see in clients who knock on my door. The first step is already taken. The journey is a worthwhile adventure."

"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."
