Life can be challenging! One of the most courageous choices one can make is to embark on the journey towards personal exploration and growth. As a therapist, my job is to help you access your inner wisdom, navigate relationships and change, and create a fulfilling, balanced life. I find that my clients are often equipped with strengths and talents that they do not give themselves credit for. I aim to help you recognize and strengthen these gifts in order to fully participate in and enjoy the world around you. I bring authenticity, humor and compassion into each session. I strive to cultivate a warm, nonjudgmental space for you to heal from your past, accept your present and enhance your future.
