Believe in life! Always human beings will progress to greater, broader, and fuller life. --W.E.B. Du Bois-- We all get stuck at certain points in life, career and relationship, feeling powerless, aimless, and not knowing how to move on... I invite you to launch a journey of self-exploration with me in a positive, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment in which you will be re-discovering your potential and strength, finding new meaning in life, breaking through the chains and barriers, and feeling rejuvenated and recharged.

Something isn’t working. Life isn’t what it used to be. Do you ever ask: “Is this what it comes down to?” Do you worry it’s too late to change, that mistakes and hurts cannot be undone? Worst are the times you feel your best option is to settle for the short-lived comforts of familiar ways, because cold comfort feels better than no comfort. I treat many individuals and couples who worked hard to achieve a picture of success but struggle privately with relationship issues, stress, and the aftereffects of a hard life. Some have tried therapy or self-help, but it wasn’t personalized enough, the right timing, or the right approach.

"You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” – C.S. Lewis. Therapy provides an opportunity to focus on oneself to work through difficult, sometimes uncomfortable, periods in life. Therapy also encourages self-reflection as a means of improving various aspects of life, such as self-confidence and personal relationships. I utilize a motivational, individual-centered therapeutic approach to help my clients discover their own resiliency and internal strength. By working together in a safe, supportive environment, we are able to achieve positive change and strengthen coping skills.
