Introduction

It is courageous to recognize when you need help and even more to ask for it. Even the most secure and healthy need a trusted mentor, healer, and guide in their life at some point. I’m a person-centered therapist, committed to helping you learn how to build healthier relationships with yourself, your body, and your partner. My work focuses on targeting what is working and developing the same and additional skills within the areas you are struggling. Understanding your needs and desires is an important part of your ability to relate and interact with yourself and others. Self-awareness brings freedom; a chance to make your desired change. This is a team effort to self-exploration, self-discovery, and finding hope and optimism in your life.
