You are looking for someone who is caring and understanding, and who has the ability, professional training, and experience to know how to help you with your problems. Someone you can like, respect and trust, and who likes, respects and trusts you as well.

It takes courage to ask for help.  When you are feeling pain, discomfort, discouragement, uncertainty, loss, or shame, it can be hard to see your way out. Just as we have hopes and fears of life in general, it's natural that we have hopes and fears about therapy.  If you have not been in therapy before, you may wonder how it works, what you are looking for, or even whether therapy is right for you.  If you have had previous experience in therapy, you may worry that it might be or not be like it was before.  Either way, you're struggling and you're asking "Can I trust you?"  Because I am familiar with a wide range of conditions and situations, it's very likely that I can help you. You can count on me to guide and support you to face and overcome problems from a place of courage.

We will work together as a team, you and I.
