Most of us would agree that, while we have moments that make us happy, there are times where we can feel stressed, less present, and at times, unbalanced. I support people through the different stages of life and help people integrate mindfulness, understanding, and support into their relationship with themselves and the people they love. I recognize my clients’ strengths and empower them to identify what they need and the steps they can take to make positive changes.

“Once we understand how relationships, love, and life are impacting us, we can create balance by adjusting perspectives and reactions.”

FIND BALANCE: We are not capable of always being happy. We have to learn how to manage our difficult and complex feeling states. Once we understand how relationships, love, and life are impacting us, we can create balance by adjusting perspectives and reactions. As a therapist I want to support people in their quest to be true to themselves and the people they love, while learning tools to help make coping with life’s demands easier.
