Everyone needs somebody to lean on. But what happens when the pressure is too much or goes unnoticed? I see it, I acknowledge the weight and sacrifice. A lot of the time, I believe, humans just need a little validation; a reminder that they matter and their efforts mean something. I've seen that the people with the biggest hearts suffer the most, out of protection for others and unfortunately put their quality of life on the backburner. I remind my clients of the beauty of their own heart, their innate potential, and the power of self worth. We have one life to live, why not truly live it.

My philosophy is one of pragmatism, based on treating each client as an individual with specific needs and empowering clients through education as well as introspection. My greatest goal is to help others develop into healthy and whole individuals, and to embrace life’s journey. In the therapeutic process, I empower the client to discover their own resolve, while at the same time directing the client into a safe path of self-discovery.

Whether you’re processing a recent event, a lifetime of experiences, or faced with a difficult decision, I’m here for it. Feelings and emotions are real and impact our lives significantly. Sometimes they get heavy and need to be unloaded, but not always do we have a safe place to do that. We fear judgment and rejection if we share too much with those around us, or hesitate sharing for fear of being a burden. I provide a space for you to share, express your genuine self, and explore thoughts and ideas to process whatever’s holding you back.
