"I believe that we all encounter times in our lives when additional help might create some breathing space. Therapy can provide such help, assisting with coping and promoting transformation. I utilize a strength-based, nonjudgmental approach to explore issues and themes, which might otherwise keep clients stuck. I believe in tapping into our resiliencies, while trying out new approaches. When we review and process our challenges, we can open to healing, rather than endlessly repeating our past mistakes. I provide a safe environment, where clients can discover new perspectives and regain balance."

"I believe that most of the time we work through life's ups and downs on our own. But, sometimes life becomes difficult to manage. Changes and challenges can become overwhelming and increase feelings of vulnerability, stress or anxiety. Other times, we just feel stuck. Therapy can be a helpful step towards feeling better. I enjoy working with clients to help them regain balance and perspective. We'll work together at your pace to explore feelings and experiences while challenging what may no longer be effective. I'll provide your extra support, guidance or motivation in a warm, safe environment."
