Are you a single woman or a wife and/or a professional who is frustrated trying to make everyone else happy and frustrated it isn't working? I can help with learning to take ownership of negative beliefs, and accepting what you can't control, and how to have peace and be okay with that. Are you tired of hurting? Taking the first step is the hardest; you already made it by reaching out. You don't have to stay stuck or continue to struggle. I am an individual, women's issues counselor with over 15 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and positive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Sessions can also focus on health, wellness, and lifestyle. These may include nutrition, exercises, natural health principles, and other healing modalities to support the work of counseling and a life of balance and well-being.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Tess has been simply amazing. I haven't had a whole lot of time to work with her due to having to change due to 1st therapist starting a new job and I had to change to Tess. That was a true blessing I have made a great deal of progress since starting with Tess. She is calm, attentive and very knowledgeable. So grateful to have had the opportunity to receive therapy from her. Amazing the Best!!
