Making the decision to approach therapy is a positive one, although you may have questions or anxieties around it. Therapy provides an opportunity to reflect on where you are, where you want to be, the way you are living and the choices you are making. At certain points in life we all can feel stuck, face challenges, experience frustrations and a sense of dissatisfaction in the way we live our lives. Therapy offers you a private, confidential space to explore, reflect and be heard, to gain clarity, and challenge yourself.

Therapy to me is a process of discovery and rediscovery, reworking patterns of behavior, or beginning to change thoughts or beliefs that are no longer relevant or useful for our current self and life. It's engaging thoughtfully in your life, taking an active role in your relationship with yourself and others, and fostering the type of self and change that you desire. My role in your process lies around engaging in thoughtful discovery, working through challenges and resistance that comes inherently with the onset of change.

I believe therapy should be a normal part of life and accessible to all. We all experience challenges and need help from time to time. Taking care of our mental health is just as important as taking care of our physical health. My role in therapy is a coach, consultant and collaborator. It is important to build on your strengths because it enables you to change from a place of empowerment. As I see it, the goal of counseling is to gain insight through reflection, and to build concrete skills so that when future challenges arise, you are better prepared.
