The beauty of life can be hidden by the demands of time and resources. Thoughts of helplessness, frustration, and worry can be difficult to navigate. Constantly thinking about events or feelings that have had major impacts on our lives can prevent us from reaching our goals in life. To me reaching out for help to work through personal difficulties is one of the most important steps a person can take to begin to implement changes. I believe in the authenticity of the therapeutic relationship and how it is a source of strength for change.
I work to create an open and safe place for clients to connect with themselves as they are the expert of their life. I have a gentle approach that I use with clients for them to navigate their stories and find their answers. I always hope to provide education and practical skills throughout the therapy process for clients to utilize as needed.
I want to share that I am accepting new clients for virtual sessions at this time as I have a waitlist for my in- person spots.
