Hello! If you found your way here, perhaps you are seeking help for a specific issue or maybe you sense something isn't quite right in your life, but you're not sure why or what to do about it. Whatever the reason, therapy offers a safe environment where you can be met with support, understanding and some assistance in moving forward.
I really enjoy this work because I constantly see that therapy clients possess the strength, courage and willingness to face challenges that most people prefer to ignore. The ones who seek help are the ones who can learn to grow and flourish. So congratulations on making it this far!
My style is caring, empathetic and insightful. I work from a client-centered perspective, which means your personal truths and lived experiences are more important than a generic "expert" opinion. But at its best, therapy isn't just about fixing problems. It's also about learning how to thrive. Every single person has their own natural strengths and resiliencies, no matter what challenges you have been through. You wouldn't be here if you didn't. Oftentimes they feel so natural that we don't even recognize them as strengths. And sometimes what we believe to be our biggest weakness is actually our strongest ally. So therapy can also help identify what is right about you and not just what is (believed to be) "wrong." It sounds simple, but this tiny shift in perspective can really change how one walks through life.
Feel free to browse these pages to get a better sense of who I am and how I work. But there really is no substitute for meeting someone in person, so I offer a free 20-minute in-person consultation.
