Sometimes therapists are called the "wounded healers" because from their own life experiences they have decided to help people. I am proud to be one of those therapists. I have had a wealth of life experiences and losses and can truly empathize with my clients.

We are complex individuals molded and sometimes broken by our unique life experiences. These experiences provide the subjective lens through which we perceive reality, and can negatively influence our thoughts and behaviors. This can sometimes happen outside of our awareness. For instance, we often create hidden internal conflicts which can cause daily distress in our lives. However, we can also be very aware of negative thoughts and behaviors which create havoc in our lives. By allowing me to step into your story and your life experiences, we can work towards the goal of improving your overall well-being and happiness.
