image1As most of us have learned, life presents us with many opportunities for stress, anxiety and emotional turmoil. Professional support can help us navigate challenges in our life that are sometimes too difficult to endure alone. Therapy is a tool to help you steer the course of your life to the best of your ability so that you can reach your goals and feel like your best self.

I always take a non-judgmental stance and hope that you will find me open and easy to talk to. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and believe in theoretical flexibility and creativity to meet your individual needs. I view communication as a key ingredient to any successful client-therapist relationship and I value getting to know your distinctive story so that I may help you achieve what you want out of life.

When we avoid our problems, they can grow and begin to negatively impact all areas of our life. Prolonged stress, when untreated often results in diminished physical health and unnecessary emotional suffering. It can even wreak havoc on your ability manage small everyday tasks that are otherwise easy to deal with. This is where I feel we can work together so that you can get back to living and not just surviving.

Whether you are experiencing a situational challenge leading to depression or you have been recently diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder, therapy can help you manage your life so that you can experience increased stability and calmness through personal adversity. Finding the right community support systems can also help with emotional health and we can discuss how linking you to resources may benefit you. Ultimately, when we are in a position of choice and have added support, we feel more content and at peace and are therefore able to suffer less and experience more.
