You Are Not Alone


Overcoming difficulty is easier when you have a helping hand. I will listen without judgment, help you understand what's happening, and challenge you to work towards what you want.


You Know You Best

I provide a safe space to look inwards and reflect on your experiences, reactions,

interactions, and aspirations. The more open you are, the more I can help.


You Are Capable

I know about ways of managing and overcoming difficulties that are supported by science.

We will work together to develop therapy skills that make sense for you.


You Change You

Our time together is short. I will teach you, try things out with you, and support you along the way,

but lasting change will require your consistent effort inside as well as outside of sessions.


Your Life, Your Way

I can’t help you control everything in life or provide happiness guarantees,

but I can guide you towards pursuing a life that is enjoyable and meaningful for you.
