Therapeutic relationships set the stage for people to be empowered and develop effective strategies to remove long-standing obstacles in order to live engaged, vivid, and more fulfilling lives. The act of being heard and understood is healing in-and-of itself. I encourage clients to uncover internal resources in order to accomplish their goals. Therapy can provide clients with a safe place to express feelings and receive feedback and guidance. This can commonly lead clients to live a life of inner peace, balance, and happiness.

I have accompanied many clients on the journey to self-awareness and discovery during my years as a therapist. My approach is non-judgmental, compassionate, authentic, and direct while displaying competency in the field.

We can't change all difficult situations. However, we can better understand situations and their impact. Change, healing, and empowerment are possible. Weekend appointments available.
