About me

I have always viewed therapy as a way to address issues of justice, fairness, and equity in the world on a personal level by empowering individuals. For me, being a therapist allows for the opportunity to help ordinary people deal with extraordinary circumstances in their life.

I have over 15 years experience as a therapist and I have come to learn that life is not easy, and problems are never simple to resolve. In my view, therapy is offering guidance and support to ordinary people dealing with extraordinary circumstances. Together, we will work to make the changes that are most important to you. I use a collaborative approach, working to fully understand the issues that you are facing. My goal is to create a safe space leaving you with no doubt that you are heard and valued. I provide the necessary support allowing you to face the overwhelming, and often daunting, life circumstances that you may not have been able to address on your own. Trust is a key factor in the therapeutic relationship. I believe that helping individuals learn to trust in their ability to change is paramount.

Though every person’s situation is unique, I generally approach the counseling process from a Person Centered framework, highlighting the unique characteristics, qualities, and strengths of the individual, reinforcing the therapeutic relationship as paramount for personal change.

My first session is an opportunity to meet with the client and work collaboratively to identify the presenting problem and develop an agreed upon plan for personal change and growth. I believe the first session is the most important as it establishes the therapeutic alliance and determines the course of treatment.
