Therapy Style

Finding solutions to problems in life is a difficult task. It can be frustrating and time-consuming. My focus as a therapist is to provide a safe and supportive space for couples and individuals to resolve issues that are hindering growth. I want to help my clients develop meaningful insight that will contribute to better self-awareness and personal growth. I want to help couples strengthen their relationship through better support and communication. I am a true believer in relationships. Healthy relationships will lead to emotional strength, which is ultimately my goal for all my clients.

What motivates me is hearing others' life stories and making connection with individuals that I otherwise would not have met.
