Hope, Joy, Peace – these are simple words that have a life altering power. As we walk through life sometimes challenges and changes can lead a person to believe that they may never feel happiness, peace or joy again.

During different periods in one’s life, many people have experienced and have been challenged by events such as bullying, divorce, loss of friends, family issues, substance abuse, and loss of job.  Even though these are the types of circumstances that are difficult to handle, the human spirit is strong and always wants to survive.  It is important to take that first step towards growth, opportunity, and change.

My approach is strength focused.  I meet a person where they are emotionally and then begin to build upon their own personal strengths as they meet and address their own unique life challenges.  It is important that you remember that you have inner strength and self-worth and deserve to be able to achieve your dreams and have a life that is fulfilling and full of joy and hope.

Meeting with a therapist requires courage and a willingness to be open and work on roadblocks that may be standing in the way of achieving dreams.  I provide my clients with various tools and strategies to enable you to achieve your greater good.

My strategies are personalized and tailored to meet individual needs.  The strategies used will help you to increase your self-awareness, emotional understanding and help you to find balance in your life.

I have had many opportunities over the past 25 years to be a part of the healing and growing process for many families and individuals.  I have worked with children, teens, couples and families and have helped clients make significant life changes.  Many issues addressed in my practice focused on depression, anxiety, anger management, self-esteem building, divorce, life transitions, coping, as well as grief and loss. The prevailing thought that evolved was the desire to feel better and live a more enriched life with joy and happiness.

My mission is to provide a safe haven where you can begin the process of working through your challenges and become self-empowered and to realize that you can live a fulfilled life with joy hope and happiness. We work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. Together in a trusting environment you will feel safe to share your struggles thoughts and feelings. In doing so you will be better equipped to work towards uncovering your true potential.

My mantra that I share with my clients is to: Welcome the unexpected in life, let yourself grow…never forget to look for the beauty changes can bring.

May you find the peace, joy and hope in your life, that you deserve.
