Are you struggling to have a healthy relationship with yourself or with others? Does it often feel like happiness comes more easily to other people than it does to you? Or that somewhere along the way, you stumbled or lost your way, and are fighting to find it again? Let me assure you that you deserve and are capable of joy and growth. My work has shown me that happiness does not mean feeling "good" all the time, but rather being strong enough to tolerate all that life throws at us. Maybe you have been thrown an awful lot.

Together we will work as a team to unlock personal growth and change the way we view the world. My approach is to meet you where you are, operating from the viewpoint that individuals have within themselves vast resources for self-understanding and for altering their self-concepts, basic attitudes, and self-directed behavior; these resources can be tapped through providing an environment where repair and healing are the priority. With me, you can expect to receive empathy and unconditional positive regard no matter what you may be going through. We are here, together, to facilitate change.

Do you feel lost or overwhelmed after a break-up, job loss, or other shock to your system? Perhaps you’re baffled by a resurgence of painful memories and things just feel out of control. Or maybe concern for your children is keeping you up at night. Bullying, acting out in school, or co-parenting are common struggles. Whatever the issue, you may fear burdening your friends and family and just need someone else to talk to. If you’ve tried therapy before, but felt like you were still left to figure things out yourself, that's not us! Reaching out for help can be tough, but we applaud you for it. You no longer need to face this alone.
