I provide counseling services to teens and young adults who are seeking to take charge of their lives and improve themselves from within. I believe that every one of us is born with a strong set of unique inner strengths that are designed to help us navigate the chaos of our world. From a biological perspective, we are innately equipped to handle all that life throws at us. These traits can become dormant and it becomes important for us to intentionally foster our strengths so that we can harness the power that resides within.

I help people tap into their inner strengths. I believe that we are the experts of our own lives. You know more about yourself than anyone else on this planet. My goal as a therapist is to help people grow in who they already are and learn to trust their inner being.
