Message to clients

In today's stressful world it is easy to sweep your own needs under the rug. You’re encouraged to keep working and pushing, no matter the toll it takes on your mind and body. You might start to fall into unhealthy patterns, feel anxious, depressed, and unfulfilled. Over time this can lead to problems in both your professional and personal relationships. Your decision to attend therapy is an important commitment to self-care and your relationships. Therapy provides a safe place for you to hit pause, and reflect on where you have been, where you want to go, and how to get there.

My approach to therapy is based first and foremost on building a positive and collaborative relationship with you. I focus on tailoring my therapy approach to accommodate your unique challenges and strengths. We work together to help you feel seen, heard, and empowered to create for yourself the life that you deserve.
