About My Clients

Do you want to improve/protect your relationship(s)? Are struggles with ADHD and/or self-esteem creating increased difficulties for you or a loved one? Is your child/teen struggling, or in need of additional support? Perhaps you or a loved one experienced a significant life event that is now impacting other areas of life? My therapeutic approach provides effective tools for self-soothing, emotional processing and problem-solving in an environment that is safe; and free of shame or judgement :)

My Background and Approach

I have been fine-tuning these tools and my approach throughout my career, so that I could better assist many others that have struggled just like you. I want to help you better understand and navigate the difficulties you experience, and feel better about yourself in the process. I want to be a real person that is right there with you, every step of the way. My approach is a combination of mainly three therapeutic modalities: Positive, Humanistic, and Psychodynamic. This means that my focus is to connect with you, human to human, and empower you as we identify how your past and present are impacting you in the here and now. Through improved emotional awareness and mindset, you will make connections and develop strategies that can improve, and prevent, patterns in your life that no longer - or never did - serve you. Even patterns you have struggled with your whole life. Patterns are simply behaviors and sequence, both of which can be improved with the right approach; including yours.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I deeply value peoples' ability to be honest and kind to themselves so they can recognize when change is needed, but also forgive themselves for having struggled... because struggling is human. We all struggle, we all make mistakes, and we all have been in a place where we may not have presented as our best selves. Things in life can be difficult and we may lose sight of our importance and value in this life. I want you to know that I am here to remind you that you matter and that you are so much stronger than you realize or may give yourself credit for. I am here to help you recognize detrimental patterns that were once helpful and no longer serve a purpose, and also find strengths that you can utilize to help you live a fulfilling life that you are proud of. Together we will explore the motivations behind the patterns that currently get in your way, so you can begin your journey to where you deserve to be.
