I understand the struggles of life and how stressful it can be.   So if you are feeling like some aspects of your life are causing you problems, if you are fighting over the same issues, if you feel depressed, anxious or generally unhappy, I know I can help you. Together we can clear out the old issues and create a path towards a better future, by rebuilding your inner strengths.  I offer a safe, comfortable place to talk. I listen without judgment and utilize many therapeutic styles to help you address what is challenging you.”
