Feeling understood, feeling helped, and feeling supported are at the core of psychotherapy. This process also includes developing and enhancing self understanding. Many people contemplate calling a therapist for a long time, unsure of what to expect or how to proceed. Together, we can explore and understand difficult issues in your life and gain a deeper understanding of your situation. Through this process, we can begin to offer you new emotional experiences. In a safe setting with warmth and engagement, I provide an opportunity to gently move through what is bothering you most.

Building a healthy relationship in therapy is not only essential to immediate goals, but is a skill that patients take away for use with on-going problem-solving.

We will work together first to address your current symptoms and alleviate your suffering. As you begin to feel better, we can then shift into working with longer term patterns and challenges.

Maybe you and your partner keep having the same argument with no resolution - now there's a wall between you and you don't know how to be close and intimate again. Together, we will create a calm supportive environment to promote healing, and look at past betrayals (affairs, broken promises), that may be hindering your ability to trust and move forward.

No one ever said it (life, relationships, career, school) would be easy but should it be this hard? Taking the first step to explore therapy can be challenging but it can be helpful to obtain support during times of transition or difficulty. If you are still unsure, or even if you are familiar with the therapeutic process, meeting me and getting more information about how I work just takes one session, and a consultation costs you nothing.

I believe in meeting each individual where they are at any given moment. I believe that healing comes from forgiveness in all forms, and primarily, forgiveness towards ourselves. I work with people by establishing a safe and comforting environment and offer a non-judgmental view towards examining the underlying problems, thoughts, beliefs, or stuck feelings my clients may be holding onto. As a therapist, I believe my best asset, despite any certifications or specializations I may hold, comes from my authenticity, and the appreciation, and admiration I hold for my clients every step of the way.
