You are feeling like you have lost control over your life. You look around and it seems like all your choices are being made for you and when you try to go after what you want, you feel defeated before you can even take the first step. It does not have to be this way. In my role as a therapist, I believe it is my job to clear the fog that clouds the path that you want to be on. I believe that everyone is the expert of their own life.

Are you experiencing life changes, issues within your relationships, or suffering from anxiety and depression? Life is too short to let trauma control us or be stressed/ angry all the time.

We can all overcome challenges and rise above them, but sometimes, we need guidance. Allow me to help you on your journey of healing and self-discovery.
