"Are you ready for a positive change? Tired of doing the same thing and expecting different results? While we cannot change our past, or our genetic predispositions, we can learn to change the way we respond and react to our emotions and triggers; in order to give them less power and control in our lives. Learning about your unique experiences, needs and goals, and responding with caring and empathy, I will walk with you in exploring the barriers that you feel are hindering you, and provide therapeutic support, counseling and tools to help you acheive your goals."

"Life can be challenging, and there are many reasons you may be seeking help, either for yourself or with a partner or family members. It may be that you or a loved one is experiencing depression or anxiety. Stress may be piling up as you try to balance the challenges of life, relationship, career, or family. Perhaps you are just not finding happiness. You may be caregiving for a parent, struggling with grief, or asking "Is this all there is?" As a therapist, I tap into your strengths and creativity so that you can create positive change in your life."

"I work with people who are feeling off track or stuck and ready to make a change. Sometimes patterns keep repeating themselves and it's not clear why or habits become hard to change. If circumstances have you feeling troubled or confused, or your relationships have become a source of frustration or distress, what and how to change may not come easy. I help people sort out what no longer works and find the way forward."

"It takes a village...Navigating through the transitions and challenges in our lives is meant to be a collaboration with family, friends, elders, wise women and men. However, in the times of instant change and mobility, some may find themselves lost and alone, far from those they confide in and look up to. Sometimes they isolate for fear of vulnerability and the pressure to appear "to have it together". When this self-judgement and drive to be “perfect” eventally takes its toll, one can be left feeling bereft of deep connection to self and others. Finding a therapist you can trust and confide in, can help you find your way."
