I believe that most people, at some point in their lives, may face challenging issues, be it job or family stress, relationship issues, death, or illness. My philosophy as a practitioner is to help those dealing with such issues to find support and help in facilitating change where it is needed in order to relieve some of the strain and enhance life experiences. My style is compassionate and individualized. While therapy should always be a forward progress, the pace of each person's therapy should be suited to the individual.

As far as most people know you have your "life together." But deep down you feel stuck in a routine that feels overwhelming. You want to take the next step in your career or perhaps you want to ask an acquaintance out on a date but the fear of change, failure and self-doubt are holding you back. You have brilliant ideas that you want to share with others but you hesitate to act or speak because you are tormented by thoughts of "I'm not good enough." When you reach out to your friends, your colleagues, or your partner you feel unheard or misunderstood.
