Hello! My passion is in helping clients find their strengths and rewrite their narratives when life is challenging.

Is anxiety stopping you from living the life you desire? What if you could get rid of your stress in less than ten sessions, or even less than five? Stress can manifest as fatigue, irritability, burnout, or simply an inability to relax .It can be situational, such as a fear of public speaking, fear of making a change, or achieving a certain goal. Anxiety can interrupt your sleep, cause stress eating, damage your relationships, and affect your self confidence. One of the worst aspects of anxiety are the negative thoughts, ruminations, and obsessions it causes.
I have over 20 years of experience assisting clients by offering psychotherapy and support with difficult issues including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, stress, ADHD, grief and loss, divorce, family conflict, parenting.
