I am an experienced psychotherapist who is passionate about helping my clients on their path of self discovery, self love, experiencing satisfying relationships, and improving self esteem and self worth. I also enjoy working with those on a spiritual path.

How do you treat yourself? Can you say you treat yourself with the same compassion and care you show your family? Your friends? Your partner? Are you your best supporter or your biggest critic?

My passion is working with adults who are not satisfied with their relationships – with friends, family, significant others, or even the relationship they have with themselves! You deserve to feel loved and important, I want to help you identify and remove the barriers keeping you from realizing the life you want.

We’ll examine patterns in your life and relationships and interrupt the ones that aren’t serving you. I'm going to encourage you to examine who you are – really get to know yourself. We’ll work together to get you unstuck so you can find the love and support in yourself and your relationships.

I also provide pre-marital counseling and enjoy working with couples who need a bit of "fine tuning" in their relationships to help get back on track to experiencing a relationship that feels happy and fulfilling!

The poet Rumi said it best: "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."

I help you identify and heal the barriers within. Time to get free: find meaning in life, know your purpose, change negative patterns, and love who you are. Let's get started!
