"Let me guide you to regain connections with your body, mind and spirit. I believe that it takes a strong person to reach out for help and I applaud your first step in searching for a therapist. If you are dealing with sadness, confusion, loss or just wanting to set your life on a new path, I can help you to regain control of your life.   Our sessions can help you (or your loved ones)to become more self-aware and understand the reasons why you behave and react in the way you do.

We can address the experience(s) that have held you back or stood in your way to self-fulfillment. With a respectful, strength based and non-judgmental approach, I believe that you have the solutions within you to solve your current challenges. I can assist you to access your untapped strengths and resilience to achieve your life goals."
