Message to clients

My primary objective as a therapist is always to provide support, comfort and empathy to my patients; my hope is that an individual never feels shame or embarrassment in seeking some extra help to cope with life’s multitude of stressors. I believe that healing can be inspired through feelings of connection and understanding, these are crucial to a healthy therapeutic relationship. The process of seeking therapy or finding a therapist that is the right fit, can be understandably daunting, but I wish to make the process less stressful.

I attempt to approach life with kindness and humility, thus creating a safe and comfortable environment for my clients. I enjoy working with individuals but I specialize in couples work as well, as it can be a particularly intimidating venture to work with a spouse or significant other on communication, trust and connection.

Helping people and providing counseling has been my passion for several years and I love what I do, I believe that shows in my dedication to my clients and compassionate nature.

Please feel free to reach out at your convenience, I look forward to hearing from you.
