Life is a process of change and growth and I am here to help you navigate that journey. My goal is to create a supportive, trusting, and empowering therapeutic environment where you can feel free to express yourself fully without judgment. Together, we can work to identify aspects of your life that may be keeping you stuck or causing you distress and to find unique solutions to your needs. Reaching out for help can feel scary, embarrassing, or like you are too weak to handle life alone but on the other side of these feelings is the opportunity for increased self-confidence, improved mood, and greater life satisfaction.

Hi there, I am Tina.. Do you struggle to have strong connections with loved ones, to progress in your life and career? Sometimes you might find that you are tired, struggling to motivate, feel keyed up, react defensively, or use alcohol to relax. Memories of past experiences may find their way into your mind only to distract and create distress. It’s likely you understand what is going on but feel overwhelmed about how to change it or worse, you have tried but haven’t been able to make significant or longstanding changes. This can leave you discouraged and the subject of your inner critic.

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.

I believe therapy is an investment in your own life; a courageous risk to find healing, peace, hope and joy. Because we cannot change the past or predict the future, nor can we remove uncertainty, change or pain from the human experience, my goal is to help you discover ways to respond to whatever life places in front of you. I do so in a non-judgmental, collaborative way that focuses on building skills and self-compassion.

Every human being at times experiences sadness, anxiety, anger, shame, fear, hopelessness, guilt, uncertainty. But for some, their daily lives are significantly impacted. You may be struggling with your marriage, partnership, children, family, friends, employer, co-workers. Depression and anxiety may cause you to avoid doing the things that matter and/or to choose unhealthy ways of coping. Some struggle with anger issues that result in legal, relationship and/or employment problems. Others have experienced traumatic events as children and/or adults. While pain in life is inevitable, it does not have to take over our lives.

We all encounter many challenges and stressors throughout our lives, and it is my goal to help my clients understand that those challenges and stressors, whether good or bad, do not determine their true identity or purpose in life.
