"Life has ups and downs; many times we negotiate these with our own skills and support from others. Sometimes, however, the burdens feel like more than we can handle. Sometimes we just feel alone and misunderstood, even by those that usually support us. We may even start to question what we know about ourselves. It is at these times that therapy may be especially helpful. Therapy can assist you in better understanding yourself and the challenges you are facing. This awareness empowers you to make healthy changes and develop new skills and strengths."

"Therapy can be transformational and life altering. Therapy begins by building a safe and trusting relationship with the client and then addressing layers of behaviors, beliefs and perspectives that no longer serve their life. If you want a life worth living and need guidance to create the life you want, I can help. With over 10 years of experience, my greatest joy is to watch a client recognize their worth, embrace who they are, believe in their strength and recognize that life has more to offer than they could ever conceive.

"Few people relish change. Sometimes life offers challenges and opportunities. Sometimes it forces change and transitions upon us. It can happen at every stage of life. However, we always have choices about how we face it and how we respond. We can go with it, flow with it and grow with it. It requires a lot of courage. It also helps to approach change with an open mind and an open heart. My approach to psychotherapy is one that is non-judgmental, compassionate, empathic, understanding, safe and supportive."
