My philosophy is that therapy involves more than just talking. It means effectively identifying and building upon ones strengths and consciously breaking down barriers. It means being actively involved in one's evaluation of self and learning tangible skills to effect change, so that you can be more effective in moving towards the life you desire with less distress. This can be done in many ways; however, I believe its about building up your tool box, so that you have the right tool for the right job! I work with late adolescents and adults, within various stages of life development, and in addressing a variety of life's demands and stresses.
Its okay to take that leap towards self care and self compassion, its not selfish, its necessary to live a whole and effective lifestyle. I truly believe we all do the best we can with the information and skills we possess at any given moment, but moments change.

My mission is to a confidential, real, honest , and quality therapy experience that facilitates useful skill development and resulting personally identified change.

Reaching out can be intimidating and it takes a lot of courage to trust yourself.
