"We were put on this earth not just to survive, but to thrive. So what's stopping us? The truth is, we all have things that get in the way of our happiness: past traumas that need to be healed, ways of thinking and being in the world that no longer serve us. And that is where therapy comes in. The therapeutic relationship is like no other. It provides a space for you to truly be seen, supported and accepted, a place where your own natural capacity for healing can take over."

"Life is hard. It is full of goodness and beauty but no human gets through life without some hardship. Many of us have had overwhelming experiences we do not know how to make sense of. Some people call these experiences trauma. Often the after effects of such experiences lead to multiple challenges such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, panic attacks, relationship issues, self harm, eating disorders and many others. Often, we just need someone to see us in our pain and offer compassion, acceptance and understanding to begin moving towards healing."

""Grief does not change you...it reveals you."- John Green. Loss comes in many forms; death of a loved one, family trauma, end of a relationship or job, a move/loss of home, and health issues. Experiencing grief because of loss can make us turn away just when we need the most support. We can also get triggered at certain times, especially around the holidays. Reaching out takes courage and I provide a safe, nonjudgmental and caring space to help clients express complicated emotions, manage anxiety/sleep issues, learn coping skills and practice self-care during these life changing transitions."
