I have been instrumental in helping individuals who have experienced physical, sexual and emotional trauma.

My therapy style is warm, interactive, motivating and when appropriate humor. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion and I don't believe in stigmitizing labels. I will work with you to achieve your goals. I believe that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming the issues that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the 'first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. My approach combines a number of therapy styles. I have training in cognitive -behavioral therapy, mindfulness, hypnotherapy, psychodynamic and treatment planning to meet your needs.

Taking that first step is the hardest but you will find the support, non-judgemental attitude and an experienced therapist with proven results when you are ready for change and a more fulfilling life. I am here to support and empower you.
