Life may be tough sometimes, but it can still be good. And you can have the power and confidence to make life better for yourself.
I am a LLP Psychologist, who has been practicing for over a decade and has gained a variety of experiences in multiple settings, with multiple challenges, working with people from all walks of life. These experiences and continued learning have helped shape me to be able to connect with you and support you on your journey to finding your personal balance and strength. While we all have basic needs, every individual is different. Your needs, how you measure success, view life, what you struggle with and the difficulties you face are all unique to you. It is my position not to judge you, but to support you and walk with you through the life challenges you face while you seek to find your peace and achieve your potential.
My theory is that everything works together as a system, and I have adopted a holistic and eclectic approach to treatment. The system of the body, mind, spirit, environment, history, and other variables all interact to affect how we live every day and how we navigate life. When something is distressing us, when we go through a trauma, struggle with a mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, grief, painful relationships, constricted or frightening situations or other difficulties that preventing us from reaching our goals, whatever they may be, it is important to find and address the pain and dysfunction related to our struggle, and to work to achieve hope.
You deserve your best opportunity to succeed, be happy, be healthy and be free. This may include emotional support and analysis, behavioral changes, mind or body health changes including lifestyle, environmental changes, coping skills, if needed, medication, data tracking, a variety of other techniques available to us, or simply having someone to unconditionally support you as you work through everything.
My goal is to help you learn from your past, live in your present, and reach your future goals.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
