  • Welcome Message

    The client is the expert of their mind and my role is to use my training and education to help my client unlock crucial information. We are all social beings and at the heart of getting better are nurturing relationships. In other words, we cannot do it alone.

    When you are going through a hard time it can be filled with stress and emptiness. There’s nothing worse than being alone, without clarity on where to go and what to do. We get stuck in a funk, a place we have been before and we feel grim about things changing for better. I'm a therapist that provides a substantial amount of encouragement & support to my clients. I'm not an empty cheerleader, I'm here to provide quality treatment to improve your life.

    We don’t always have words for what’s going on within us. Being asked the right questions and talking things through with the right person can make all of the difference. I have specialized training in working with individuals with pervasive developmental disabilities, preschoolers, children, adolescents, as well as young adults.

    I want to know about the things you are noticing that feel off. I'm here to be with you through tough times with concrete feedback on ways to help you in your current state. I want to help you achieve the results you are seeking to see in yourself and in your relationships. ***Currently only offering day appointments *** .
