Healing in Hope
Do you feel alone, sad, irritable, scared, or hopeless? Is it hard to face your day, to manage your worries or control the negative chatter in your mind? When struggling with depression, anxiety, or trauma it is common to feel overwhelmed and to have difficulty completing basic tasks. Life changes, circumstances and relationships can cause a great deal of pain. I am here to tell you there is hope and it is okay to ask for help. Take a deep breath. You are not alone. You deserve a fulfilling life with peace of mind, emotional, mental, spiritual growth and stability, happiness and love.
When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we get to write a brave, new ending. – Brene’ Brown
I believe we are all on a journey toward improved wellness and health, but at times our paths may have unexpected detours or speed bumps. At this point we may feel anxious, frustrated, confused, sad, angry or, even out of control. When you decide to pick up the phone, call and ask for help, you have taken your first step. By taking this step you are giving yourself the opportunity to grow through discomfort and learn new ways to deal with life stressors. During the entire treatment process, you will be an active collaborator and together, we will work to establish a cohesive relationship built on trust, empathy and acceptance.
My goal is to create a safe, comfortable, welcoming space for you to share your story, including your struggles. My collaborative, warm approach is focused on your specific strengths, goals, and needs. I will listen to your thoughts, feelings and desires that led you to reach out for help. Together, we will create an individualized treatment plan that includes specific goals, objectives and interventions which will drive your entire treatment process. During our sessions, I will provide you with my clinical insight and feedback drawing upon my years of expertise in order to address your treatment needs.
I provide a holistic psychotherapy approach for those who are looking to grow, heal and recover from life struggles while journeying towards an improved quality of life. During the treatment process, I focus on the relationship between your mind, body and spirit, in an attempt to understand and address ways one aspect may lead to concerns in another. I will
listen to your story and work with you toward achieving and maintaining balance in all life areas.

The Next Step
I know first-hand how scary it can be to ask for help and in fact, it may be the hardest question you ever ask. Things may feel out of control and you may not even know which way to go or how to start. The important thing is you start. You have choices and are never stuck, despite what you may think. In our sessions, I will walk alongside of you to promote safety, security and trust, throughout the entire therapy process. We will work together to assess various dysfunctional life patterns and prioritize the changes you would like to work toward. My hope is to help you process and learn from your past, create peace and happiness in your present and for you to look forward to your future.
