"Emotional pain is not something that should be hidden away and never spoken about. There is truth in your pain, there is growth in your pain, but only if it's first brought out into the open" - Steven Aitchison. Life's challenges can create feelings of hopelessness, and even skew our sense of worth. You are not alone...I would love to join you on the journey towards healing and empowerment.

My approach to the therapeutic alliance is gentle and playful, yet direct. Therapy can be a fascinating collaborative journey of discovery and self-awareness that can be hard but empowering and fun, like exercising or completing a task. I am experienced treating a variety of issues to include trauma, anger, anxiety, grief, depression, men's and adolescent's issues, substance abuse and PTSD. I also offer life coaching, couples counseling and relationship skills. A big part of our lives is spent deciding how to respond to the hard times that inevitably come to us all.

I believe there is an innate desire within every human to be seen and heard, and to receive value and significance. For so many, a message filled with lies was internalized, “Who cares what I think? My feelings aren't important.” My NUMBER ONE focus is to create an atmosphere where my clients feel at ease, and valued and given the freedom to tell their unique and personal story. The meaning of “Therapy” to me is this, “Therapy is the miracle of, “You tell” and “I listen”. Therapy is the wonder of being heard and understood.” The goal of therapy is for the "best you" to emerge as skills and strategies are learned and implemented.

My purpose is to help clients reclaim themselves; to put themselves as a priority and engage in self care. Clients find me when going through periods of reinvention, transition or when they are craving an authentic life. I work with clients who want to break through the myth of perfection and also those who are striving to find their voice. I believe the therapeutic process is about losing what is no longer needed rather than changing perceived flaws.
