"I believe creating a secure, trusting and meaningful relationship is the basis for opening the door to change in our lives. Life can be hard. Whether it be stress from relationships, work, parenting (sometimes all of the above!) and life changes, we all deserve a space where we feel heard, valued and seen. This allows us to process what happened, whats happening now, and how to move forward. Sometimes this involves reflecting on our past hurts and learning new coping skills, other times the change comes from simply having the space to process how we feel today in a compassionate and non-judemental way.

"Crises and painful emotions can be the beginning of a journey toward transformation and wisdom. If you are looking for a deeper and more connected sense of yourself, and fulfillment in life, then you may be ready for a commitment to the therapeutic process. I believe my empathic presence - the capacity to hear, see and feel a situation from the other person's vantage point- is central to the healing process. Within such a safe relationship the patient can develop an open attitude toward the unconscious; exploration of the meaning and purpose of one's life can unfold."
