Healthier ways of living with ourselves and each other...

I am not here to fix you, because I do not see you as broken. Instead, therapy is a process of identifying and initiating small shifts in our way of thinking, feeling and behaving that lead to healthier patterns of living with ourselves and others. Sometimes taking the first steps can seem difficult, but rest assured we'll take them together.
