"Enlightenment consists not merely in the seeing of luminous shapes and visions, but in making the darkness visible." (Carl Jung) Effective therapy is a dedicated collaborative partnership between an individual and therapist. Helpful therapists empower individuals to access their own inner emotional and spiritual wisdom, courage, strength and innate capacity for healing. It is the therapist's responsibility to offer insight and guidance so that one can grow to stand in their truth and set a clear course for change. Often this process must go deep to resolve hidden pain that has resurfaced in the form of symptoms.

You don’t have to navigate this difficult period of your life alone. I will take this journey with you as you harness the awareness and insight gained through our time together.

Life can get hard, no matter how old you are or how “great” you appear to have it. Navigating through daily stressors can take a toll on you, and make it hard to concentrate at work and(or) school, communicate with your family and friends, and do the things you usually love. These stressors can include relationship concerns, peer conflicts, parental conflicts/difficulties, continuing to make“bad” decisions; unresolved childhood concerns, un-fulfillment at work, or difficulties dealing with past trauma.

I am passionate about helping others succeed in improving their mental health so they may live healthy life. I believe each stage of life brings an opportunity to grow and challenges to be faced. Due to people’s backgrounds and mental health issues, they may lack the skills or emotional stability to navigate circumstances on their own. My goal is to provide an empathetic, non-judgmental, warm, and attentive environment that produces personal growth and wholeness. A place where the individual may feel comfortable sharing pains and struggles in life as well as developing self-compassion and resilience.
