What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

The mutual commitment to the process. Recognize that things may get worse, as you accept awareness of your obstacles and work to overcome them, before they get easier. When you feel like you want to reschedule or cancel, that is when you need to stay the course.

Work History

We have all experienced times in our lives when we have felt blocked or stuck, overwhelmed with persistent sadness or anger, relentless worries about our past, present or future. You are here as you recognize you are at a place where you need to reach out for assistance. At all stages of life, my goal is to help you remove obstacles, reimagine your life, and strive to be your best self. We all need short and long term plans to live life intentionally. It often takes a third party to help us look at our individual circumstances objectively. We can all benefit from having someone on whom we can rely - at moment’s notice - to step in and provide guidance when the landscape of our lives changes. Though things may look different from what you had envisioned, you can still achieve the best version of yourself, at any age or life stage, with someone providing you or your loved ones with the appropriate direction. Committing to starting on a path to a healthier, safer, and more fulfilling lifestyle is just that – a commitment, a choice. Together, we will pave a better path forward.
