We all have the capacity to reach our fullest potential. Yet all too often we find ourselves stuck in negative patterns of thinking and acting, unable to see other possibilities. Therapy allows us to make meaning of our difficult life experiences and open up to new ways of thinking, feeling, and being. I strive to provide a safe and supportive environment where clients can learn to identify and express their emotions effectively, develop healthy ways of coping with difficult emotions, improve the quality of their relationships, and increase their self-esteem and sense of self-worth.

"Making that first appointment, and asking for help, truly takes courage and is the first step to new beginnings." I believe that providing a safe and supportive space, combined with therapeutic collaboration, facilitates change. I utilize an eclectic approach and believe in using evidence based treatments, tailored for each unique individual, their specific needs, and desired goals. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families who are ready and motivated toward change, however, just aren't sure how to get there. Once given the proper tools and skills, options appear and the ability to choose a better path presents itself.

I congratulate clients if they have taken the first step of seeking therapy/counseling. I believe that seeking treatment for oneself is a sign of health although many would associate it with pathology. Therapy is certainly not about advice but about a safe place to bring issues and put them on the table. A therapist is more of a "life witness" than a judge. Clients usually have enough judges and advice givers in their social circle. A good therapist provides resources, educational materials, positive mirroring, techniques to manage symptoms and hopefully joins with the client in acknowledging their world view.

It is extremely important that my client's feel comfortable with me and my work, otherwise therapy becomes a task, not something rewarding or nurturing. Teaching clients how to validate each feeling/emotion, how to sit with feelings and not run away from them is what I do best! I'd love to ask you why is it you may tend to cycle in the same energies and what would happen if you stepped out of it? Would love to hear your response! The way we think affects how we feel and then affects how we behave. I believe that every tear drop has a voice, if your tears had a voice what would they be saying?
