Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you feeling confused or unsure about where to turn? Want to make some change and just aren't sure how to begin? We all experience times in our lives when we feel stuck, overwhelmed, and uncertain about how to move forward. Therapy offers a place where we can receive caring and support, while learning new skills for how to manage the difficulties we are facing. Therapy means that you don't have to face these challenges alone and that you don't have to continue repeating the same mistakes. I believe the most effective therapy is a co-creation between client and therapist that assists you in reaching your goals and in creating the life you've imagined for yourself. Please call today for a free phone consultation, and let's talk about how we can begin this journey together. I love working with people and getting to meet people right where they are in their life's journey. We are all so unique with our own stories, personalities, struggles, and triumphs. Often, when clients come in for therapy they are suffering and in a great deal of pain, and I am honored that they share their struggles with me. I have experienced no greater reward than being able to connect with my clients, offer hope in the midst of their pain, provide them with new tools and experiences, and see them be able to improve their lives and become happier, healthier people. I am honored to work with people through this process.

About My Practice

Office Hours
I provide morning, afternoon, and evening appointments to match your schedule. Please call to discuss your availability.
Services
I specialize in three areas: 1.) I love counseling children and teens, especially those struggling with divorce, trauma, or school difficulties. 2.) I am passionate about working with adults to increase their self-esteem, improve their communication skills, and empower them to take charge of their feelings and needs. 3.) I really enjoy working with MFT students and interns and supporting them in their journey toward licensure. I also offered reduced rates to students and interns!
