"Entering therapy can be both exciting and daunting. It usually means that something in your life isn't working quite right. It is also a sign that you are ready for change and want to learn new skills to create a more balanced and meaningful life. My goal in therapy is to help you connect to your own inner wisdom and natural resilience. All people have a natural tendency to move toward wholeness and healing, but at times need help discovering and changing what is getting in the way of this process."
