“A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.” – quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Life can be complicated at times no matter whether our road is smooth or bumpy. Therapy can help bridge the gap between uncertainty and clarity. I consider therapy a roadmap;  we begin our journey in one place and connect the dots to reach our destination safely and purposefully. In my practice, therapy is a safe place where the client is met with mutual respect. Together, we help you gain clarity and understanding through therapeutic interventions and strategies that are best suited you. I look forward to meeting you!
