We all experience events, moments, and feelings that are too much to bear alone, and we all should have a safe, judgement-free space where we can regain focus and strength. One should have the means to vent about daily struggles, regain confidence through skill building, strengthen relationships through positive communication, process painful events, or regain a sense of direction in life. I seek to provide a space where any or all of the above could be accomplished at your own pace. I strive to ensure that your effort is respected and valued by being honest, empathetic, and straightforward. I believe that nobody knows YOU better than you do. Therefore, my approach to therapy focuses on working with you to find resolution to your issues while teaching you to become your own therapist. I believe that a successful therapeutic process is one in which the client develops the confidence to apply skills learned and becomes able to overcome issues on their own.
