Hello! Congrats on taking your first step-- you're awesome! Starting this journey can be challenging and the unknown can be scary. You might have a lot of questions and challenges you want to overcome, which is where our relationship starts. Together, sessions are collaborative, strength-based, and non-judgmental. It is important that you feel safe and listened to in sessions, and that is where I come in. Let's use our strengths together-- you know you best and I have the tools to help. I believe in you!

Coming to therapy for the first time can create some anxiety and that is completely normal. Whether you be dealing with anxiety, life changes, trouble with assertiveness, boundaries with narcissistic family members, self esteem, being a teen, or being a co-parent after divorce, I am here to help.

Not everyone heals at the same pace in therapy and that is what makes us unique and wonderful. Individuals and their distinct goals take various time spans to process and achieve. I am here to be your helper and advocate through this difficult time! You can do it! {NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS UNTIL JANUARY 2020}
