Life can feel chaotic. Whether you are considering your first time in treatment, continuing or returning to treatment, my goal is to provide you with the platform and skills to effectively evaluate, identify and create solutions to help you. It’s important to remember that therapy is not always about ‘fixing’ a problem. Sometimes, it is about learning how to work with the problem by creating awareness, strengthening insight, developing or broadening skills you already have. It is a joint effort between the therapist and the client, working together, to impact change and bring balance to what may otherwise feel out of control.

I believe my role as a therapist is to not only hold space for the difficult times, but to bring to light my client's inner strengths that will assist them in taking steps towards building a life worth living. Goals for therapy are based on what you are looking to work towards. The therapy hour is not about me and my agenda, but rather you, and your needs, wants, and overall goals.
