Social Worker, Psychotherapy Intern, MSW
What problem do you strive to overcome?
Problem: Sometimes life hurts and we are uncertain how to move forward through the pain. Grief, life transitions, difficult relationships, and past experiences often leave us searching for healing and hope. We don’t want to do this work alone, and yet we don’t always know where to turn.
Solution: In the therapeutic relationship you will be heard and seen as the unique, valued, and whole person that you are. In my practice I use a holistic, person-centred approach where together we will build a respectful relationship that allows you to gain new skills and work toward your personal goals. We may talk about difficult things, and in doing do you will experience an empathetic, supportive, and competent therapist who will feel privileged to take this journey with you.
Result: In therapy it is my goal for you to find a safe space where you can discover greater self-awareness and deeper insight into what may lead to live-giving change.

More than just my work:
The image of light is one that I find powerful, as there is no darkness that is greater than even the dimmest of lights. In light I find hope and I appreciate this quote by Christopher Reeve:
“Once you choose hope, anything is possible.”
