I believe there are no quick fixes and that change is a continuous process. Goals are set, progress is made, and next thing you know, there is an unexpected set back. Life experience has taught me that, it is great to want to change, it is great to want to move forward, however, it is also very important to live in the here and now. I will work with you to manage expectations, manage emotions, look for something positive to hold onto to, and at the same time, examine what we can do to strive for a different future. We will partner together to delve into the past, ...

Therapy is a collaboration where we discover creative solutions to your problems, find strong clarity, and discover your truth and powerful, inner voice. I believe in the resiliency of the human spirit and the ability we all have to rise above adversity and intentionally craft our lives. My approach is eclectic and I use solution-focused, evidence-based methods in addition to traditional modalities such as mindfulness and mind/body techniques. Therapy isn't about finding out what is "wrong" with you. At the heart of it, it is about learning, understanding, and dis...
