About

There is hope. Change is possible. Support is out there. Are you working through life transitions, feeling stuck, wondering about how to feel more calm and settled? Are you wanting to find healthier coping techniques, and reduce the frequency and severity of symptoms of depression and anxiety? Perhaps you need support for parenting challenges, want to improve relationships, gain insight, or desire ways to communicate well? Maybe you want to build confidence and self-esteem, or are having vocational stress or seeking career change? Looking for support and new ideas for change in general?
My goals are to help you reach YOUR goals in a supportive, empathetic, and compassionate space where you feel safe, and can grow and share. I provide therapy from a strengths based lens that is positive and solutions focused. Services include: telehealth for individuals and couples, and career coaching and advising, workshops, public speaking and classes.
As they say, 'today is a good day to have a good day'. Feel free to reach out and let's get started. We can set-up initial appointments generally within two weeks. No long waiting lists to get a formal diagnosis. For more info, please call (Tip: leave a confidential voice mail since I am often in sessions and can't get to the phone) or email. Let's talk.
