"These days, many of us are busy - working multiple jobs, raising families, commuting and many of us never take the time to stop or pause. I support my clients in slowing down and bringing their attention to the parts of themselves that they so often forget. The wounds, traumas, grief, joy, & growth can all be acknowledged and integrated in therapy - hopefully, resulting in a more meaningful experience in the busy world. I am passionate about creating a space where all of my clients can feel safe looking inward, experiencing their body, & talking about difficult things."

"If you are considering counseling, you are brave and strong because seeking help can be scary. More importantly, you are already on the path to healing and change. I'd like to partner with you to help you on the journey. I'm not the type of therapist who will tell you what to do because I believe that deep down you already know. However, I will affirm your strengths and encourage you because affirmations can empower people to replace their negative thoughts, emotions, and behavior for healthier alternatives."

Any issue or symptom, such as addiction, depression or anxiety, or an underlying sense of disconnection, fear or doubt, is a message from your unconscious that something inside Is out of alignment. Together we will explore the symptoms and their meaning, to help you connect more to yourself and life. This collaborative effort is likely to facilitate significant change in your life, allowing you to live your life rather than it living you."
