About me

Leave anxiety, depression, low self-esteem/confidence, stress, and more behind. With guidance, begin to overcome difficulties, find new perspectives, improve self-belief and worth, and start to feel better about yourself, your life and relationships.

Do you find yourself…

  • Self-critical and put yourself down
  • Old beliefs that keep you struck
  • Opportunities missed
  • Daunted and overwhelmed by life challenges
  • Frequently experience fear, self-doubt, and worry
  • Take on too much and feel exhausted and burnout
  • Stay in unsatisfactory relationships
  • Difficulty setting boundaries
  • No faith in your ideas or opinions
  • A negative outlook on life and pessimistic

I understand that overcoming life’s challenges can seem overwhelming but by building a stronger sense of self-worth and cultivating unwavering confidence in yourself you can embrace opportunities, focus on what you want in life and do well.

Stop holding yourself back and say yes to opportunities, focus on your best hopes for yourself, and start doing well in life.

Don’t let the past define you any longer: take the first steps towards embracing your true potential and live your best life.

I help adults in cultivating a more positive self-view, enhancing their overall satisfaction in life, and fostering healthier relationships.

I know the toll that life’s worries, disappointments, and challenges can take on your self worth and confidence. It’s all to common for stress, anxiety, depression, and frustrations to wear you down and dampen your spirits. That’s why I am here to help find your inner calm, courage, and optimism, so you can rise above the hardships and truly thrive.

As an experienced therapist, my goal is to support unhappy adults in boosting their self-esteem and confidence. I believe that each individual has the capacity to feel better about themselves and their lives. It’s about rediscovering the strength and resilience that may be overshadowed by the weight of life’s burdens.

In our sessions we will delve into various aspects of your life, including your relationships, personal goals, and automatic negative thinking. We will work together to challenge negative beliefs and patterns, replacing them with positive affirmations, and empowering perspectives. Along the way, you’ll develop new copping mechanisms, reliance, and a renewed sense of self-worth. 

Go from just going through the motions and rediscover the joy in life, embracing your inner strength, and building a solid foundation for a fulfilling future. 

Start feeling positive about yourself, your life, and your relationships by understanding and appreciating your uniques qualities, accomplishments, and experiences. 

I believe that feeling good about yourself is essential for overall well-being and happiness. It’s normal to have moments of self-doubt and criticism, but with the right mindset and strategies, you can begin to cultivate a positive and empowering outlook. 

Therapy is a powerful tool that can benefit individuals from all walks of life. Whether you are facing significant challenges or navigating the complexities of everyday life. I am an experienced therapist here to support you on your journey towards healing and growth. 

No problem is too big or small when it comes to seeking therapy, because each persons experience is unique and deserving attention. 

From the seemingly insignificant hurdles to the life altering events, I am committed to providing a safe and compassionate space where you can explore your thoughts, emotions, and concerns. 

Together, we can work towards finding answers, solutions, and strategies that will, enable you to overcome obstacles, regain balance, and ultimately thrive in all aspects of your life. 

Let me be your guide on this transformative path to self-discovery and achieve the well-being and happiness you deserve.
