Disruptive relationships and life events can continue
to have distressing effects until they are safely supported and worked through. Our collaborative dialogue can help amplify personal resources and shared sources of support as well as discover perspectives and ways of being to find relief from psychological distress or trauma.

Some questions people bring into therapy include the
following: How can I face crisis in my life, relationships or family history? How might I find support for anxiety, stress, anger and depression? Why am I stuck in repeated thoughts, sensations, emotional states or feelings? How do we make sense of shame? How can I grieve and comfort loss? How can I cope with life-after-injury or diagnosis? Do you have any thoughts or questions you'd like to talk about?
Therapy can offer a safe and secure base for important authentic reflection and connection. It’s a process that takes place in the present moment and integrates ways of thinking or behaving - patterned by our past. Throughout our therapeutic process, I support and encourage your strivings with dignity, humanity and compassion. If you're seeking therapy, let's talk.
