Great to meet you!

With over 20 years of experience in the helping profession, I understand that seeking out support can be daunting. Whether you are contemplating a change in your life or fully committed and ready to begin a fresh start, I will accompany you through your process. As you begin your journey, I will work to provide the guidance and resources that meet your needs.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Therapy can feel like an intimidating process but it does not have to be. Together we can create a comfortable space where you can have authentic, judgment-free explorations of the things that matter to you. Given time and practice, changes in thinking and your everyday life are possible.

What you can expect from our first session

Together, we will explore your goals, create a plan, and determine the best tools to help you heal.
