"Mental strength is not the ability to stay out of the darkness; it's the ability to sit present in the darkness knowing the light will shine again”, (ADHDsuperhero). I have a passion for assisting my clients through this process. Self-care is a practice we rarely exercise. You cannot care for others until you take care of yourself. Make the decision to take time for you; you are worth it!

The ideal client for me is someone who is ready for something different. It’s normal to feel fear when stepping into change and I work with my clients so they don’t have to be stopped or dismayed by said fears or doubts. The therapeutic process involves a willingness to learn and being open to outside and differing perspectives. I’m passionate about partnering with clients who are willing to work together to achieve their goals.

We all live in this fast-paced environment where we are always on the go. I understand the need to get things done in a timely manner but in these times, our mental health tends to be on the back burner. Asking for help is one of the hardest things to do but it’s also a courageous one. Taking that first step will help make meaningful changes in your everyday life so you can live a happier & enriched life. As your therapist, I will be working with you to understand what has led you to this point & to find effective solutions to maintain your therapeutic goals.

As a Therapist my aim is to reveal dysfunctional thoughts, emotions and behaviors that adversely affect daily life. I seek to facilitate transformation, thus enabling clients to realize their potential. There is a level of healing necessary to empower individuals to overcome crisis. Healing transforms us, it produces fundamental changes in the nervous system, emotions, and preceptions, enabling us to move from trauma to peace, from immobility, fear and constriction to fluidity, courage and receptivity.

"I have been a therapist for almost 25 years working with adult clients around issues of mood disorders, trauma, personality disorders and relationship difficulties. I believe people have the power within themselves for change but sometimes need a facilitator and coach to help them find additional coping skills or to process something with an objective party. I offer empathy, experience and a non-judgmental stance in the therapeutic relationship. My style is eclectic depending on an individual’s needs, with foundations in DBT, CBT, motivational interviewing and best practice models for psychotherapy.
