All of us can lose focus from time to time on the things that matter most and become caught up in the minutiae of everyday life. This lack of direction can lead to feeling stuck or lost, and unsure where to start in reclaiming our lives and getting back to our paths. Being able to rediscover and focus on our individual goals helps restore balance, generates a sense of purpose, and brings back a sense of confidence and happiness.

Hellen Keller wrote: "Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it." My role as a therapist is to assist my clients in identifying the source of their suffering and build on personal strengths so that joy can once again be experienced. I believe that creating a respectful, honest and open relationship in which one can self-reflect and identify these strengths is the foundation of effective therapy. Through my experiences with diverse populations, I have also grown to appreciate how a mixture of sense of humor, common sense, compassion and competence can facilitate personal growth
Seeking out therapy when feeling overwhelmed or stuck is an act of courage. As a therapist with over 10 years of experience, I am committed to providing a safe space for clients to talk through their roadblocks, life transitions, and adverse experiences.

My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, pregnancy and postpartum, OCD, and trauma.

Personal growth and soul-searching take courage. Therapy is a journey, and I am ready to begin that journey with those courageous clients. It takes courage to seek help and sit with a stranger, the therapist, and talk about what troubles you, what motivates you and what you love. Counseling is about you and for you. No matter the age and stage in your life seek help if you feel you need it. At times, what is going on in our lives seems insurmountable. Having someone to provide encouragement, listen without judgement, and helping you set goals and realistic expectations can ease the burden.
We all search for the one path that will lead to happiness; problem is, there isn't one path. Every path can lead to happiness. We have to pick the one that looks best for us and not look back at the other paths, or go searching for new ones. This is often the case in the aftermath of a major loss, traumatic event or life transition. We question, "why me?" I see myself as your coach helping you navigate the new normal that you call your life. I want to help you find happiness along your path.
