“The path of life: The only worthwhile journey is to traverse its full length, stopping for many a breath, many a rest, many an experience along the way” (Anonymous).

I believe you are the expert of your own life.  Nobody knows what it's like to live in your shoes but you.  My philosophy is that if we could do better, we would!  What prevents us is that often times we lack the tools to help us succeed.  Through my guidance and utilizing therapeutic interventions that cater to your specific needs, I will help you discover your inner wisdom.  In doing so your sense of self will improve, you will begin to accept true responsibility for your actions in the now; and help you find a new outlook on the way you view the world and your place in it.   

My approach is multidisciplinary and relational.  I believe you receive in counseling as much as you give. Our work together will be collaborative, requiring a deep processing of your feelings and insight about your life.  You will bravely open up without judgement.  I will listen and guide you to become the best version of yourself while integrating therapeutic interventions that work best for you. Through introspection  you will tap into your inner self with humility and laughter; as well as a few possible tears, but don't worry- you're not in this alone.

It is my purpose to assist you in reaching your goals to navigate your life in a meaningful way.  On this journey, you will improve your self-esteem and daily functioning; as well as interpersonal, and communication skills.  Thus, as you grow, you take with you the tools you have  learned.  Empowered by your learning and ability to tap into the endless possibilities of self-discovery, you embrace who you are fearlessly in an ever changing world.
