About me

Hi! Thanks for checking out my profile.

I believe that every individual has personal strengths and talents, and every person has the potential to achieve a greater level of happiness and success.

You probably have a wish list of what you want in life, but you might not know how to attain it. Whether it's improving your relationships or overcoming anxiety and depression, I help you move from a place of feeling stuck, to a place where you find renewed passion to reach your goals and enjoy your life again. This is so important I published a book focused on the topic. Feel free to check it out here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1983264989

Life doesn't come with an instruction manual on how to be happy and successful. My job as a therapist is to help you build the confidence you need, and empower you with a fresh mindset that enables you to set and attain the goals you have for your life.

Real therapy happens when we partner together. If you're ready for someone to help you get "unstuck" in life, click the "Work with me!" button to get started.
