I am especially interested in working with adolescents and young adults who are experiencing difficulties related to issues such as life transitions, substance use , anxiety and/or depression, ADHD, academic concerns and relationship issues.
I strongly believe each of us has the ability to heal and grow, thereby creating a life in which we experience an inner sense of wellbeing, while being fulfilled and engaged in all that we do. As a therapist, I provide individuals with the nonjudgemental and respectful space one needs to discover and better understand the totality of who they are. Within the therapeutic relationship, I support and empower clients to discover their potential and to find ways to create healthy and positive life changes. My approach is relational and insight-oriented, while also focusing on practical tools to meet life's challenges.

Do you wish your life was different, or your relationships more fulfilling? People often begin therapy when they are hurting or feel stuck. They may feel overwhelmed by past or present stressors or traumas and may not know what to do to feel better. Others begin therapy as a means to deepen their understanding of themselves and to reflect on how and why they think, feel, and act as they do. Therapy is a process of self-reflection that leads to personal growth and healing.

Since then, I has been able to see people regain the life they desire whether that is substance use or mood disorders.
Some days can feel like a challenge even waking up and the world can feel like a daunting place. It can be increasingly difficult to stay in the present moment when your mind is moving a mile a minute and you may not know the next best thing. The future can bring about anxiety and the past can bring up sadness but the present moment can be just what it is. I work with clients to explore what it means to live a valued life from their own definition and how to implement that plan. The strength and power are already within you and I believe that you may be able to find it with a little support.
