About Me

I believe psychotherapy is a journey of self-discovery, problem solving and emotional recovery. I help my clients to grow and heal from issues with depression, anxiety, loss, relationship issues and family adjustments. I support my clients with improving social and emotionl functioning and increasing interpersonal skills while developing positive and solution-focused goals for creating a more fullfilling and healthy lifestyle. If you are exploring ways to achieve a more balanced way of managing the everyday stressors and challenges in life, the services I provide may benefit you.
