When you suffer from low self-esteem, negative thinking patterns, anxiety/depression, or have unresolved issues from your past, it's easy to forget what 'happy' even looks like. These struggles feel like a cloud hanging over you. You get to a point where you're so tired of feeling this way, so you seek therapy. I am here to help you regain control over your emotions, and to remind you that you have the power to change your situation. Our sessions will provide you with hope, and the tools needed to get closer to where you want to be.

Sometimes the only thing standing between us and our goals is a little bit of direction. My empathetic, solution-focused approach provides direction to help you regain control of your life. Our sessions provide a comfortable, safe space to address your concerns, and make concrete plans to accomplish your goals.

It can be scary to feel lost and unsure of what steps to take next, but you don't have to go at it alone. Contact me today so we can discuss how I can empower you to become self-sufficient in dealing with various issues. The fastest way to reach me would be via email.
