Life can be difficult. Far too many people suffer traumatic events or experience loss that leaves them in deep emotional pain. Perhaps struggling with a mental illness steals away one's purpose and resilience for life. This is why I strive to offer a safe and compassionate space for people who are hurting. 


My clients soon learn that our time together is a collaboration where we have empowering conversations that include speaking hard truths and facing difficult life choices, all the while finding strength and hope for necessary change. Through our work in therapy,  I am devoted to making our time together important and impactful.
