About me

I have a flair for helping people effect positive change in their lives. My offices are comfortable safe spaces to talk about difficult things and make tough decisions. The road to emotional wellness can be painful and challenging, so I try very hard to be encouraging and supportive while change is occurring. Hurt, pain and anger do not define who we are; it opens our emotional pathways to inform us of the need and time for change. Depression is usually an indication of the depth of personal disruption, so when it’s appropriate, I offer advice to validate feelings, encourage healing and to dismantle irrational thinking.
