In my work as a therapist I bring many years of professional experience, as well as a life-long commitment to furthering my own personal growth.  While it isn’t always easy to explore difficult topics, when it’s done in a safe environment - free of judgment and with an open mind and heart – it can be a life-changing experience.  With tremendous respect for you, and for the therapeutic process, I will pay close attention to the problems you want to resolve, while never losing sight of how to help you nurture and honor the deepest part of who you are.

Do you find yourself turning to drinking or smoking for relief? Or feeling chaotic and struggling with relationships or difficult memories? By working one on one in therapy, we can identify sustainable ways that you can find peace in your inner world. Our thinking patterns can lead us into states of anxiety, depression or anger which make us want to engage in unhealthy behaviors. I will teach you how to reframe your thoughts in order to achieve a more balanced mood state and how to challenge and become less attached to your thoughts and emotions using cognitive and mindfulness techniques. Recovery isn't easy, but it's definitely worth it. Having an experienced therapist will support you in addressing underlying issues that have been keeping you stuck. I want you to heal quickly, but I also want to make sure we are thorough because I want your recovery to last.

No matter what you situation is or how difficult it seems, I want to let know: Things Can Get Better! Even if you have been in counseling before or it feels hopeless: Things Can Get Better. It will take a commitment and work on your part, but Things Can Get Better.

My promise to you as a professional and someone who loves helping people is this: I will do my absolute best to create a non-judgmental place where you can voice your hopes and concerns. I will also promise to be honest and respectful.

Lastly, I have a few questions for you...

How good will it feel when you are feeling and doing better? Who will be the first person who notices when you've met your therapy goals?

I look forward to working with you on this awesome journey to reaching your personal goals. Talk with you soon!
