“One can choose to go back toward safety or forward toward growth. Growth must be chosen again and again; fear must be overcome again and again.”

Abraham Maslow

Perhaps you feel depleted by struggles within your relationship and are looking for guidance.  Maybe you're finding it difficult to manage your professional and personal stressors or often feel anxious or down.


Carrying the weight of difficult to bear experiences and emotions can feel insurmountable at times.  Having a well versed psychotherapist can make a difference. 


Therapy is a process of growth, self-discovery, and a gradual build of hope.  In sessions, we will focus on your priorities and tailor your therapeutic process either as an individual or a couple.

Whether it's for just you or your relationship, I have the experience and expertise to find a way toward what matters to you most.
