Therapy is a collaborative process. I understand there are many times in our lives when we need more support to help with a transition, a loss, a relationship, or a child. My approach is to assist you in gaining insight and awareness around issues that impact you in your life. I focus on the development of coping strategies, improving communication skills, and resolving conflict related to work, family, and in relationships. It is my belief that therapy in a safe, supportive, respectful environment can empower someone to find their voice and regain balance.
