I believe that each one of us knows exactly how to heal ourselves; however, the message gets lost inside ourselves for various reasons. I see my job as merely helping the individual attain the clarity to see for themselves the choices they've made. Once they understand the unconscious decisions that drive their behavior they can begin to make positive changes. My style is very relaxed and interactive. I try to create an environment that feels nonjudgmental and safe; where the individual feels cared about, encouraged and empowered.

I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. I want to help you achieve whatever solutions and life changes you are looking for while enjoying the therapeutic process as much as possible and experiencing yourself in new ways. Reaching out to a therapist can often be hard. You may fear being judged or being vulnerable with a stranger. But I am confident that given the chance, you will see the benefits in talking with me as I really want to help you succeed. My hope is that you take this leap of faith and see how I can best support you. We can only do the best that we can.
