My practice is built on the idea that we all possess the strength to heal ourselves and sometimes that means reaching out for help. I work collaboratively with my clients and feel that the client is the expert on themselves and I am there to assist in the process of growth. Therapy can only be successful if there is a positive and strong working relationship between the client and therapist.
I work with clients on current stressors as well as long-standing emotional difficulties and I find that there is often a connection between the two. Often, our histories have a greater impact on our present lives and functioning than we realize. It is my task as the therapist to help link the past and present, discover patterns and explore your feelings related to them. I hope to provide you with a safe, comfortable, trusting environment in order for you to share your thoughts, feelings and experiences. This process of exploring will result in the alleviation of your symptoms whether it is depression, anxiety, addictions or relationship difficulties.

Issues related to adolescence such as difficulties with self-esteem, identity, high-risk behaviors, teen pregnancy, relationship difficulties, etc.
