About

It is true what they say, "Life is Journey", and like most journeys at times you may find yourself struggling to overcome obstacles, confused about which direction to go, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, lost or feeling alone. Therapy can be your co-navigator during these difficult times. For some it is about learning new skills and strategies to cope with stressors, make healthier choices, or manage emotional reactions in a more effective way. For others it may be about overcoming fears, changing dysfunctional behavior patterns, processing loss or healing from acute and chronic physical and emotional traumas.
As a psychologist with over 20 yrs of clinical training & experience, I have the expertise to help guide you towards your goals. I approach therapy from a client centered, strength based and individualized point of view. With an eclectic style that pulls from many evidenced based approaches, we can develop a unique plan that meets your specific needs.
Whether working with children, adolescents or adults, my goal is to provide a safe and compassionate space to promote self-growth and healing. Whatever your reasons are for seeking help at this time, I would welcome the opportunity to be a partner in your journey.
