“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”
It is my desire to walk along with you during the therapeutic process; to have you progress at a pace in treatment that is comfortable for you. I will support you as you begin to see the beauty and the challenges that exist within the grey of life. It is my intention to make space in the therapeutic relationship for you to feel safe, and secure while simultaneously you work towards dispelling feelings of guilt and shame.

This disconnection may be showing up as anger, addiction, anxiety, depression, perfectionism, low self-esteem, difficulty maintaining relationships, loneliness and isolation, feeling out of control of your life, feeling trapped in a situation you don’t really want to be in, experiencing grief/loss or going through a life transition, among others.
