Are you at a place in your life where it feels like you might just need a little help? Perhaps you are experiencing some level of depression, anxiety or loss of direction. You might be in transition, in unfamiliar territory or ready to work through some issue from your past. You may simply be at a place where you would like to improve on yourself with the help of a trained therapist who you know you can trust to do what is best for you. Everyone needs help from time to time. Life is full of challenges and you don’t have to face them alone. I will work with you to move through whatever you are facing. I believe that you are unique and that the solutions to your life issues are unique to you – we will find those solutions together.

My passion lies in helping my clients connect to the core of who they are. When you are disconnected from yourself, you may find yourself feeling unhappy, stressed, distressed or just anything but good. Life can get thrown off track easily with all of the pressures that we are faced with on a daily basis. The work that we will do together will focus on bringing more of you into the world so that how you live your life aligns with who you are and who you strive to be.

I have a strong belief that you can create a life full of your own passion and joy with the fullest expression of you right there in the middle of it all. I love the work that I do and I practice what I preach. I believe in self-care which includes being active, being creative, striving for personal growth, taking rest, eating well, sleeping well and nurturing your relationships – most importantly your relationship to yourself. I love getting to know my clients and want you to know that therapy can be fun, spontaneous and creative.

Through the use of talk therapy, expressive arts therapy and sandtray therapy, I invite you to explore the areas in your life that may be causing issues or conflict. I create a warm, supportive and safe environment of acceptance and love for you to explore, share and grow into your very best self.
