My philosophy

I believe that no one’s life is free of challenges; and that it’s not so much about when or if these times will arrive but rather how we choose to move through them. Connection, to me, is a key piece of effectively navigating life’s difficulties. I strive to offer my clients the space, time and compassion they deserve to do this. I hope to build genuine, non-judgmental relationships supported by evidence based, family-centered therapeutic approaches providing clients with the most meaningful experiences possible.

With everyone’s circumstances unique to themselves and their family, therapy should not be considered a one size fits all. Together we will discover what methods serve you best and go from there.
