Together we create a collaborative relationship where we work to find meaning, understanding and compassion and this opens up new options and choices.

There are times in our lives where we find ourselves unable to find solutions, move forward or times when you simply want to understand. This is where I can be of help. I encourage everyone to talk with several therapists to get a feel if this is the right person for you."

"Some people pursue therapy because they love personal growth and self-exploration, but many of us come to therapy as a last resort or because our current experience is no longer tolerable. Even when we're suffering however, change can feel intimidating or unattainable. It can feel safer to remain in the discomfort of habitual patterns and experiences than to take a leap of faith into the unknown. It takes courage to pursue change, but if you are reading this, even if you are scared or doubtful, you have the courage required to heal and I am here to help."

"My practice centers on promoting change through love, compassion and acceptance. I assist clients in moving towards greater healing and wholeness by providing a safe and encouraging therapeutic relationship. You may have a sense that something isn't right in your life but aren't sure what it is. Or you may know what it is but have no idea how to change it. Maybe you see yourself in a cycle of destructive relationships, thought patterns or behaviors. Or you experience overwhelming negative emotions and don't know how to cope. You hope that if you just try harder or stay busy your situation will change and, when that doesn't work, you beat yourself up. Both avoiding and forcing change do not work because we cannot change until we first feel accepted as we are. Many of the issues we face are deep set and can't be changed overnight, whether its feelings of anxiety, a strong need to control our situation and people in our lives, failed romantic relationships, a low sense of self-worth or the after-effects of a traumatic experience. Making changes in these areas takes time and courage. The good news is you do not have to do it alone. "
