Welcome! I appreciate how taking these first steps to find a therapist for yourself or your child can feel vulnerable, so I applaud your courage. Needing some extra care, connection, perspective, and resources at various times in our lives is part of the human condition, and therapy can be one of the best places to find that support. I prioritize creating a trustworthy, caring, empathetic, and nonjudgemental relationship with my clients, enabling them to safely explore the parts of themselves that need attention, healing, growth, or change.

Hello and Welcome. The first step to healing is looking for a therapist and making an appointment for help. Are you in the middle of a transition? Transitions can be changing jobs, dissolving a relationship, entering into a new relationship or just accepting change in yourself. These changes can be challenging, exhilarating and frightening all at the same time. It is difficult to remain healthy mentally and physically at these times without some help from professionals.
