ABOUT

By creating a real connection with empathy and compassion, our therapeutic relationship can support significant change and growth.
Whether you are coming on your own or as a couple, we will work together towards viable solutions, developing and strengthening your coping and relationship skills and pursuing your short and long term goals in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
For the individual: By gaining insight into behaviors, processing unresolved memories of trauma, working through grief, moving past depression and anxiety, solving decision-making problems, you can set and reach goals, build healthy relationships, embrace self-acceptance and live life from your true self. You deserve the chance to make peace with yourself.
For the couple: By sorting out the root causes of your conflicts and acquiring the tools for working through them, you can feel more accepted by each other and actually strengthen your relationship and find the satisfaction in couple-hood that seems to be eluding you.
