Professional statement


Have you been avoiding conflict and letting people walk all over you? Do you feel like you’re walking on eggshells at home or at work while trying not to blow up? This can be very painful, and it’s a common issue many people face every single day. Unfortunately, many people learn to avoid all conflicts. This can lead to resentment, which can cause more serious issues such as low confidence and self-esteem.

I offer an effective therapy called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It helps people learn how to have a happier life. We’ll work through your patterns, and I’ll help you by teaching new ways to communicate and how to enforce boundaries. Clients who complete this process often come out seeing the world in a new, better, and healthier way.

My job is to hold you accountable so you reach your desired goal. As a counselor, I’ve worked with many individuals, couples, and families struggling with negative patterns, high conflict, and grief. My passion is helping clients get to the rewarding parts of life. Call me today for a free consultation and we’ll get started on your journey together!
