About

Are you experiencing personal struggles due to transition or loss? Feeling disconnected or stuck, and wondering if/when things will ever change? Do you want to cultivate a balanced and improved quality of life, but are unsure how to? Utilizing the support of a therapist can help you develop practical strategies to manage life stressors and improve emotional and psychological distress. I have honed a myriad of skills to help individuals make effective changes in their lives, while cultivating genuine connections with a strength-based solution-focused approach.
I am experienced in helping with emotional, thought and behavior related difficulties, identity development and parenting concerns. My experience in mental health adds to my ability to effectively coach individuals around self-care, well-being, mind-body connection, problem-solving, skill building, effective communication, and time management.
Life can offer unexpected challenges, transitions, and endings, which can be difficult to navigate on our own. Together we can work towards change in a way that honors your core values and beliefs, addresses your identified needs, develops self-mastery and the confidence to cultivate a balanced and improved quality of life.
