Maybe you are worrying about the future, feeling stuck about what to do next. All of these situations are workable and I would welcome the opportunity to support you in moving forward toward your goals and the life you desire.

Therapy can be a wonderful opportunity to connect more deeply and genuinely with yourself in a way that translates to deeper connections with others in your life. It is also an opportunity to make changes in your life, get support during a difficult time, work on relationships with family, friends or romantic partners, or heal from a deep loss. I offer therapy which is collaborative, active and respectful. I listen attentively, ask questions, offer observations, develop strategies and give feedback with warmth, empathy and a lack of judgement.
