My Treatment Approach:

“Without change, there would be no butterflies.” ~ Author unknown

Life and circumstances beyond our control are often stressful and overwhelming for even the most courageous of us. Sometimes we experience anxiety, pain, anger, or hopelessness and engage in patterns of behavior that leave us feeling disconnected and confused. Often the hardest part is gaining the resolve to talk to somebody.

As your psychotherapist, my role is to accompany and support you along your unique process of transformation. My approach to treatment is collaborative. I emphasize hope and optimism, and together we will create an environment of safety and compassion. We will explore your unique values and strengths, discover internal and external influences to your struggles, establish attainable results, and develop positive strategies to achieve your personal goals.

My approach encourages authentic self-expression, connection, life balance, and realization of worthiness to emerge when working with all clients, including individuals, couples, children, and families.
