Therapy helps people to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships, become free of old patterns, or simply find ways to process pain or memories that have kept them feeling stuck. It is a healing process that allows people to not only start feeling better but gain insight, awareness, and ultimately begin trusting their own intuition and experience.
I am an active, involved therapist whose life's work is aimed at providing growth, relief, and healing for those that enter my practice. I have complete reverence for the ability to work hand in hand during the therapeutic process with my clients. I understand that everyone comes to therapy with different experiences and expectations. The ultimate goal is to explore the current issues impacting you while exploring the underlying factors impeding your ability to reach your healthy, desired balance.
