I welcome you be the architect of your own life! I believe that challenges can be beautiful, albeit it deeply painful, opportunities to create a life you feel inspired to live and nourished by living. There is hope in every situation, and often life’s greatest lessons are learned during it’s biggest obstacles. Life is not always easy, sometimes it can be excruciatingly difficult. The hardships of life and its many transitions, may they be sought out, natural throughout the life span, or ones that blindside you on some idle afternoon can leave you feeling like you’re just trying to survive, going through the motions on autopilot, or as though life has happened ‘to’ you. And then the questions come: Who am I? How did I get here? The life you have doesn’t reflect the one you imagined. While we cannot change the past, we can choose to create meaning in our experiences, and determine how its legacy comes forward with us.

My approach to therapy is rooted in empathy, humble curiosity, and respect and appreciation for innate humanity. I believe in the capacity for our own evolution, and the beauty and strength in resilience. My hope is that our work together will support you to build your sense of competence and clarity so that you may live a life that you value, and in which your relationship with yourself and others feel well.  

The smallest act of bravery has the power to create meaningful momentum towards wellness in life. I welcome you to seize this moment and connect to the support you deserve and make the change you are longing for. For more information on how therapy works, and how I can support you, please feel welcome to connect with me by phone, email, or through our website where you can book a complementary 15-minute consultation, or initial session.  It would be my privilege to support you.
