I have approximately 10 years experience assisting people with depression, anxiety, relationships, parenting, careers, abuse, grief/loss, and trauma issues. Life can be difficult to navigate through and no one should feel like they have to do it alone. I have discovered that building a supportive and enthusiastic relationship through therapy, can create a safe place to explore life struggles, understand difficult issues, develop new skills, enrich relationships, and work through situations to lead a more successful life. I believe that within a safe, trust-filled therapeutic relationship, people can decide upon and implement the changes necessary to improve their lives. My goal is for you to feel understood, validated, and free of judgement. If you are ready for a wonderful change in your life and would like some support, lets work together.
