If your search brought you to this site, you may be starting each day with a feeling of dread and anxiety, struggling through or avoiding unpleasant life events, concerned about not achieving the potential you know you are capable of, or experiencing interpersonal conflict. If your search brought you to this site, you are probably looking for change in some aspect of your life.

Steinbeck’s quote perfectly paints my message, my philosophy, and my approach: Change is possible, there is hope, and I can help! I do this by identifying the real cause of your struggle (problem?) and the patterns that are maintaining it, and will then plan and be your guide and partner in the necessary steps to finally achieving the change that you seek.

Over the past decade I have attained several specialties that I’ve outlined on this site.

This site is intended to be a platform from which I could share resources and information and to allow you to book and manage your appointments. So feel free to browse the various sections or to just book your first appointment and take your first step towards a new tomorrow.
