About…

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” – Carl Rogers

I believe that the first step in moving towards the life that you want is to accept yourself and your position as they currently are. This is not a request to settle or to be content not to change, but rather, an invitation to look at the cards you hold. Only after accepting how things are can the next steps needed for change be determined. I can provide the space for you to feel comfortable to express just how difficult things are, while the healing relationship we build together will serve as the vehicle driving transformation. Seeking support is not an easy thing to do, and by simply taking this first step, you are stronger than you think.

My therapeutic style incorporates evidence-based modalities within an authentic, person-centered approach. I believe that all humans have an intrinsic drive towards positive change; however, our difficult life experiences often get in the way. I hold a firm faith that in a safe, supportive, and nonjudgmental environment, we can first recognize and understand these obstacles, and then use research-supported strategies to help you return to your natural state of healthy growth.

If you find yourself resonating with my profile and would like to learn more about how I do therapy, please feel free to visit my webpage, where you can book a session or a free 15-minute phone consultation to assess our fit. I am easy to reach, so do not hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. Even if you and I are not the right fit, I would be glad to help you find the therapist who is.
