Reaching out for support when the going is rough and when challenges feel too overwhelming, is a radical act of courage. I come to the work of psychotherapy through an interest and curiosity of the Whole view of who you have been, who you are now, and who you are becoming. In the "here and now" of the therapy sessions we work together to facilitate the meaning making of what ails you, of what gets in the way of living a full and satisfying life.

Picking a therapist? It's confusing and scary to open up to someone new. If you have felt invisible, not seen, not heard, undervalued or dismissed. I can help. If you have known grief, trauma or unfulfilling relationships. I can help. If you've felt "you are not enough". I can help you learn how to speak "I am enough as I am". I treat people who live roller coaster lives, had parents who neglected and abused them, are lonely/disconnected, strive for perfectionism in everything. I can help you learn how to: trust again, feel your emotions, accept your past, love & forgive yourself.

I treat people who have a variety of situations and I am deliberate in achieving better client outcomes. I use Social Psychology to examine the individual's struggles in dealing with the environment's demands especially during times of crisis. I recognize that stressful experiences can be spirituality exhausting to deal with and I can help you cope. I also use a Psychodynamic approach to explore the experiences of the past and change the present.

Thus, when we sit together I don’t consider it my job to ‘fix you’ but rather, to be with you. It is in being with you and bringing awareness and kindness to you exactly as you are, that we can begin to create safety in our relationship together and grieve and heal past and present challenges.
