You were born with the ability to reach your full potential. The painful experiences we all have in this life can lead us to subtle and yet negative beliefs and assumptions about the possibilities that truly do exist for us. I strive to help my clients gain an understanding of the impact assumptions, beliefs, and even thinking can have on life satisfaction.

One of the most rewarding transformations I am privileged to be a part of is witnessing and journeying with my clients as they turn their weaknesses into strengths. This is not end-of-the-rainbow stuff. This is what is possible when the shift is made from focusing on limitations and disappointments toward embracing and fostering your own strengths.

You were born with great worth and value. Your life experiences may have trained you to believe untrue and unworthy things about yourself, but this is not your ultimate story. I am honored to help by offering direction and walking alongside you as you move toward your personal goals for change and growth.

People come to therapy because they want to be happier and more content and often what is needed are merely some new tools and a compassionate and accepting guide who listens deeply.

This place of compassionate listening is where a good therapy relationship starts. Let’s begin by discovering together what happiness and fulfillment look like for you.

Depression, anxiety, unresolved trauma and hurting relationships can become obstacles to a full and happy life. Obstacles are there to be overcome and we become fully ourselves as we do just that. So, whether the goal is to learn how to prioritize your own happiness for once or bringing about thriving relationships, I will work with you to tap into your personal strengths and gifts for bringing about the changes you desire.

Therapy takes effort and some willingness to risk, but it is also an adventure in learning and becoming all that you can be. As your therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential as you begin leading a more joyous life. Doing just that is a sacred journey for me…

Let’s work together as you acquire the skills needed for living with greater contentment. If you’re looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you’re just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you as you achieve your life goals
