Perhaps you are here because you are struggling with OCD or anxiety. Maybe you are suffering from low self-confidence, or dealing with stressful events in your life, such as parenting, divorce, empty nest or retirement. Or your life feels dull and void of meaning and you are depressed just going through the motions.


My mission is to help you find your path towards a more joyful and fulfilling life! I believe that growth and change is possible throughout our lives, and that we each have a natural drive towards health and wholeness.


I provide a safe, nonjudgmental setting for you to explore what may hold you back, what your dreams and goals are, and how you can develop new strategies that are more effective in pursuit of a satisfying life.


Having worked with hundreds of clients, I understand that each person is unique, and therefore, has their own unique history, goals and aspirations.


I pride myself in providing evidence-based, ethical and compassionate care to my clients.
