All of us need help from time to time dealing with life’s struggles and challenges.  We are not meant to go through it all alone.

You might be here because you no longer want to let stress, anxiety, anger, trauma, depression, or shame run your life or ruin your relationships.

You might be here in the middle of a personal crisis, seeking support and deep understanding of your turmoil, looking for a psychotherapist like me who has the experience to help you find your way through it.

Empowering people to live bravely and authentically

You might even find yourself ready but unclear about how to lead a life with more meaning, purpose, and authenticity.  

With my 20 years of experience as a psychologist and psychotherapist, we will work together to make deep, long-lasting changes to move through your pain and improve the quality of your life. 

I have had countless clients share with me their appreciation about how much our therapy has improved their lives and made them feel more whole, brave, empowered, and authentic.  Put my experience, training, empathy, warmth, and humor to work for you in creating the life you want to lead.

If you’re interested in becoming a better, happier, more fulfilled you, get started and please get in contact today!
