Are you hoping to find someone who will not only listen & support you, but also actively engage with you? Are you new to therapy or maybe had a less than great experience in the past? Therapy can be life-changing, and I am here to create a safe & welcoming space for you to explore what’s happening in your life & connect it to our broader work together. I am a down-to-earth and approachable therapist who understands that life can be complex & challenging for anyone. I believe in focusing less on labels & more on providing practical support & guidance aimed at fitting what YOU need in your ongoing real life.
In our sessions, you decide what’s important, and I am here to help you navigate and work through that crucial aspect of your life. It’s not a quick fix; together, we will get to the core of why you do what you and why you feel the way you feel. It’s not just about your actions; it’s about the underlying core reasons driving those actions.
If you are ready to take that step, I’m here to walk with you. Together, we will create a space where you can be yourself, explore your feelings, & work toward becoming a healed and best version of yourself.
