Life can be stressful and sometimes overwhelming. For many of us life presents ongoing challenges such as maintaining healthy relationships, managing stress/anxiety, setting healthy boundaries, transitioning through life's stages, balancing work and home life, finding fulfillment in life or negotiating issues of self-esteem and identity associated with perfectionism and people pleasing. Our inability to effectively respond to these challenges can take us off course, interrupt our progress and interfere with our ability to become the person we desire to be. I am passionate about self-introspection, self-empowerment and growth. I believe in the potential of people to heal and have the life they deserve. The work we will do together focuses on helping clients have a deeper understanding of what they’ve experienced or are experiencing and move towards positive change.
My mission is to help clients experience a heightened level of peace, happiness and self-actualization using insight and cognitive change to foster growth and contentment. I view the therapeutic relationship as a vital part of this process; thus, I strive to create a supportive environment that is safe and nonjudgmental.
Whatever phase of life you’re in and whatever struggles you’re facing, therapy can be what you need it to be. This is because at it’s core, therapy is a personal investment in honest conversations for those ready to live life more intentionally. It can be highly effective when there is a good match between client and therapist. I take a collaborative approach with my clients to get to the root of their issues and concerns, build their coping mechanisms, transform their current thinking, and build their confidence. I’d love to partner with you to turn your crisis into opportunity, pain into possibility and tragedy into triumph. Particular areas of interest: Managing stress, anxiety, depression; ‘Little T’ traumas; work life imbalance; women’s issues; life transitions, finding purpose, premarital/marital issues, codependency & relationship conflicts.
