I believe that people are the experts of their own lives. Sometimes, past events or current situations cause upheaval and individuals begin to live according to unhelpful narratives which begin to define who they are or believe they should be. Living according to these unhelpful narratives becomes restrictive and uncomfortable, much like wearing shoes that are three sizes too small.
I specialize in working with couples, families, and individuals - whether challenged by anxiety or depression, conflict in relationships, grief, or the lasting impact of trauma - my goal is to help you gain the needed insight to bring about desired change and live your preferred life.
My role as your therapist is collaborative; together, we will uncover your inner strengths and begin the journey of changing your insight. My job is to help the expert in your life - YOU - become the author of your preferred story. This is how change begins to happen. Contact me for a free 15-minute phone call to see if we're a good fit to work together.
