I see my work with people as helping them to live happier and more fulfilling lives. Because we are all different, my services are highly individualized and I do not have a "one-size-fits-all" approach. I take a collaborative approach to working with you. Together, we will first understand your issues and then find better ways of coping, by learning and practicing skills that will allow you to make long-term changes in your life.

Life can be full of ups and downs. Sometimes the challenges we face can shake us and begin to disrupt our current day to day connections with others. Unconscious thoughts, childhood experiences, and daily interactions can impact thought processes influencing the way we view ourselves. Struggling to cope with these challenges can begin to create a negative sense of self. You begin to no longer see your true self worth. I practice utilizing a holistic, integrative approach, as I focus on the importance of helping individuals gain insight into the origins and meaning of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
