About Me

What is keeping you from creating the life that you desire? Are you ready for personal growth and transformation? Are you driven and committed to making those significant changes that will pave the way for you to build the future you aspire to achieve? I begin therapy by understanding where you are and the challenges you face. Clients come to me looking for a therapist who “gets” them. With me, you will feel safe and validated. Using approaches such as EMDR I will help you feel whole again. My goal is to help you put a plan in place that will help you move forward. We will be a good fit if you are looking for therapy that is warm, honest, and friendly but with a direct approach. At the end of the day, I make our work goal-oriented. I offer a supportive and non-judgmental space where you are free to explore your thoughts, emotions, and concerns at your own pace, knowing that you will be met with empathy and understanding.
