You are likely here because you are experiencing some kind of overwhelming change. Maybe, a change in yourself, your health, a life role, a relationship, your family, in your professional world or in your environment. What you are experiencing is actually an opportunity to foster strength and growth. No matter where you are starting from, change is possible.

Maybe I am the right fit to help. Please explore my website to get a better sense of who I am as a therapist and how I work.

The current pandemic is one major change bringing uncertainty, loss and instability to us all.

Please reach out to me if you need guidance, support or tools to better cope with and navigate what you are experiencing. Or simply, just to talk. For both our safety, I am currently ONLY offering online therapy.

Who are you?

Why I practice the way I do

Connecting with you is key

You are here and reading this because you are struggling with some challenging life change that has either suddenly overcome you or has been coming on slowly and you thought you could handle or ignore it. It has now become too much though; creating stress, anxiety, depression, confusion, disconnect, anger, fear, loneliness, sadness, self-doubt, lack of motivation or unhealthy coping. It can be anything that is overwhelming or pushing you to let go of the familiar- leaving you with a feeling of vulnerability in your present life and as you face the future.

Connecting with you is key

 I believe my psychotherapy style enhances our therapeutic connection. This connection is a priority for me since our relationship is a powerful part of you achieving any positive change. Rooted in collaboration, authenticity and support, I will encourage you to slow down, explore and challenge existing beliefs and unhealthy habits. I will help you find your greatest strengths and build upon them. With my presence, focus and commitment, you can begin to accept life's inherent difficulties and approach them with confidence, awareness and compassion.

You are unique so I choose an integrative approach (talk therapy, creativity and practicality). Practicing the way I do allows me to best meet your needs, wants and personality and take a flexible and holistic approach. I will help you stay invested in the process and help you see your progress. Feeling curious, more empowered and accepting, you will be able to identify a realistic way forward and take practical steps towards lasting and fulfilling emotional and relational change. Yes, therapy is hard work but I believe it can also be fun, hopeful and empowering.
