I would love the opportunity to work with you and your family .
I view counseling and therapy as a conversation. It is my goal to help my clients identify and define what they value in life. Most negative emotions that we experience in life are due to frustrated efforts at achieving the things we value. Often we stand in the way of our own happiness due to unexamined expectations. I believe progress comes through increased awareness and understanding of one's core beliefs about self, others, and the world. I purpose to serve as a sounding board to this growth in awareness and understanding.

Life is complicated and seldom straightforward. We are often left facing challenges that are surprising and difficult to navigate. It may be a new role, a disappointment at work, a problem in a relationship, or some lasting echoes from the past that still show up, that causes us to feel anxious, angry, sad, confused and “stuck”. We try our best to manage by using coping strategies that turn out to be more problematic than helpful. We are then left thinking, what happened? Will I ever feel like my old self? Why can't I just get over this? If you are anxious, struggling to focus, overwhelmed by work or family , I am trained to help

Whether with our intimate partners, children, siblings, parents, extended family relations or work colleagues we are always striving to navigate relationships that cultivate joy and connection. However, these relationships can sometimes leave us feeling unheard, misunderstood and anxious about our future. Healthy relationships are something we all desire, but often have a difficult time identifying and defining for ourselves. I believe that there is no greater investment than understanding the way you connect with yourself and others.

CBT, strength-based, solution-focused, Family systems, Motivational Interviewing, Harm Reduction, and Mindfulness are some of my approaches.
The human experience can be challenging at times. One can encounter situations leading to feeling powerless, in pain, or stuck. At times, this can look like an individual ruminating in the past or experiencing levels of depression. Or possibly, one can also be worried about the future or experiencing anxiety levels. I value the autonomy that people have and their ability to problem solve. Yet, I also acknowledge that a constructive and intentional space could provide efficiency for individuals maneuvering through various situations. As a counselor, I intend to help you within this space and support you on your healing journey.

I work with people who are experiencing problems because of relationship difficulties, loss, infertility, family transitions, work problems, substance use and health issues.
Change is hard. But change is necessary when we find ourselves in situations where we feel sad, anxious, angry or stuck. My ultimate goal as a therapist is to help you develop more options in life -- to help you realize your potential in love, work and play. This involves the development of new ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. I will be your collaborator in this process. I will strive to create a safe, empathic and non-judgmental environment that will allow you to identify and explore your current struggles. Working together, change is possible.

COVID-19 has affected all of us. The future feels uncertain. We worry if family and friends are safe and our job secure. We are socially isolated, days are monotonous, and we miss physical closeness and freedom. Millennials have moved back in with family and lost their independence and sense of identity. Generation Zs lose out on graduation, team sports, friends and jobs lined up after school. Individuals worry about elderly parents, job loss, and struggle to balance work and children at home while finding time alone to just breathe. Couples are experiencing too much togetherness and need communication skills more than ever.
