"Helping others through difficult times is my passion, and we all go through difficult times. As a therapist, I try to become part of the situation, feeling the tough times with my client and helping them see things from a different perspective. Together we find ways to solve problems, tackle situations and create beneficial solutions. My style is direct without being overwhelming. I believe therapy can often be positive and fun. Knowledge is power and often therapy turns out to be a great learning experience, allowing clients to realize their strengths and achieve their lifelong goals."

We all experience loss, encounter challenges, and we all are privy to the brokenness of our culture that results in carrying a variety of misguided and limiting beliefs that can affect our relationship with our Self, with others, and impact our capacity for happiness and fulfillment in life.

"Scheduling an appointment for therapy is a personal choice, reflecting a desire for change or betterment in an area of one’s life. It may be prompted by a long-standing pattern or relationship that is increasingly difficult. One might schedule an appointment after a critical incident, crisis or anxiety or depressed mood. For others, seeking therapy relates to the frustration one feels after repeated efforts have not lead to desired results. There are also times when individual therapy is a successful starting point for one spouse to get support for a marriage; when a partner is not ready for couples therapy."
