Navigating life's set backs, challenges, and adversities can absolutely take a toll on our wellbeing and ability to function, which is why it is important to know that you do not have to work through these concerns alone. I believe in the power of healing through promoting self-awareness, autonomy and empowerment, and also in people's strength to move towards change. Though suffering is a part of life, something that all humans share, working to manifest helpful and sustainable coping mechanisms, and skills that will work to serve you long term makes a difference in the quality of life a person experiences.

“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” - Friedrich Nietzsche. As a therapist I believe in helping clients find their genuine way by uncovering issues that are preventing them from reaching their potential. I strive to provide a safe place for clients to allow themselves to be honest and vulnerable without being judged. My training and education are rooted in psychodynamic theory and I believe therapy is a journey a client and therapist must take together.

A quote that I live by and utilizes in my practice with clients is “When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at will start to change.” This involves identifying and connecting experiences that will ultimately lead to greater self-awareness and appreciation and help create a new view of life that will foster positive life choices and continual growth.

Clients come to me and receive compassionate care without negative judgment as a means to make meaning of the events of their lives. That new understanding, gained in a supportive coaching relationship with the therapist, becomes the foundation for positive change. Open and self-aware clients tend to want validation of their thoughts and challenges to what hasn't worked. Skeptical clients tend to desire safety and assurance that someone is on their side. Regardless of the category, clients tend to get what they need from one session to the next.

I am passionate in working with relational issues, either when helping individuals or couples and families. I believe that our relationships have an essential impact on our well-being. I am yet to hear a client or a friend or a family member talk about distress that is not somehow associated to a relational issue... Aren't we all longing to belong and to find safety and security in the arms of our loved ones (partners, parents or very dear friends that are like family)? And yet, these are precisely the people that can hurt us the most.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way'. A couples counselor or a family counselor may use different techniques depending on the one that works best for you. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
