"We all experience bumps and bruises throughout our lives. When those bumps and bruises become too much to handle it can be very difficult to reach out for comfort and help and not know where to turn. It can make you feel defeated, helpless, and isolated. You don't deserve to walk through life just surviving day-to-day. I believe in meeting my clients where they are at in life, wherever that may be, and helping them to learn how heal and grow so they no longer are just surviving, but able to fully live their lives. I work from an open-minded, non-judgmental framework and believe in a true therapeutic partnership with my clients."

"Therapy is a process of personal growth and empowerment. Ultimately, therapy requires an individual, couple, or family to commit to making meaningful changes in their behavior and ways of thinking, both of which impact the way we feel. The work that goes into therapy requires great dedication-on the part of both the client and the therapist. It is the professional relationship that develops between them that forms the foundation of the change process."
