Life these days comes with enough challenges. Having someone to listen without judgement shouldn’t be one of those. That is where I come in as your Therapist. Together, we will work on strategies that allow you to address and overcome past and present obstacles in your life. I am committed to helping people overcome addictions and learn ways to manage their depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, trauma, anger and other stressors that may affect your daily life.
Sometimes in life, we find ourselves stuck in patterns of relating to ourselves, others, and the world around us. Those ways of being may have once helped us get by, but now we struggle to free ourselves from the grip of the past. At other times, we might feel lost, uncertain where we steered off course or how to get back on track. Maybe it's as if we're trapped in a long, dark tunnel, doubting if we will ever get out and see light again. Frustrated, empty, alone, afraid, discouraged... Reaching out in times like these can be extremely difficult, but may be exactly what we need.
As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

These days, our stress can feel overwhelming. I provide a safe, caring environment for adults to slow down, find their center, and make space for what needs attention. I use Hakomi: a body-centered mindfulness approach - to gently explore how each client organizes their own life experience. Learning to become safely embodied is a vital step towards healing. Through this gentle moment-to-moment exploration, core beliefs and protective strategies are revealed - and pathways towards change illuminated. Our own natural instinct towards healing awaits our readiness to unfold.

Life can be overwhelming at times. No one is immune to struggles and hardship. The pain of these struggles can cause an imbalance in our lives and leave us feeling anxious, fearful and sometimes "stuck" . There is no shame in asking for help. It takes courage to change. I am here to help. Throughout my life working in helping professions I have developed a passion for those who have survived early childhood trauma, spectrum disorders, mood disorders, and couples/families in crisis.
