"The decision to take your child or teen to therapy is not an easy one for many parents. Perhaps your child is struggling in school, and you are dreading the next phone call to address the latest issues, or you might feel exhausted trying to figure out how to go through the daily functions without all the “meltdowns.” you have tried everything in your power to help your child, and have not seen enough improvements. You might be worrying about your teen’s emotional state, lack of communication, or defiant behavior. Many parents in these situations know that they need help, but are unsure where to start. "

"As of September 10th, I have availability for new clients. Life can be hard. With life's challenges and demands, it is easy to get drained, tired, overwhelmed and worried. You get so caught up in doing things that the world demands of you that you may forget to tune-in to yourself. Therapy is a space where you can break away from the world, allow yourself to reflect, and explore how and why you're living your life the way you are. It's where you can have good days and you can have bad days and both are completely okay and accepted. Eventually, in that space a transformation can happen."

"Are you feeling distracted or overwhelmed? Perhaps you are lacking motivation and seeking clarity to connect with your passions and purpose in life, or desire more fulfilling, harmonious relationships. Maybe you’re tired of people saying you’re “too much” or “not enough” leaving you feeling not good enough or unworthy. You are not alone. Releasing old fears, anxiety, shame, guilt, and negative thoughts doesn’t have to be a painful, difficult process (deep breath!). It can be incredibly freeing, creating space and connection to a part of yourself you never knew was there. "
