meet our therapists
Finding the right therapist can be an intimidating task. Sometimes the first therapist you pick isn’t a good fit and you might have to see more than one before you find one with whom your comfortable.
It's important to remember that therapy is a much, much richer experience than just problem-solving. The foundation of good therapy is the relationship you and the therapist build together. Because this relationship is going to be so crucial to the effectiveness of your therapy, it is essential you find someone with whom you feel a comfortable connection; someone who makes you feel understood and accepted; a therapist who creates and maintains an environment within which you can feel safe to explore even the most deeply felt sources of pain or conflict. Choose a therapist with whom you feel you can establish such a life-changing and life-enhancing relationship. You deserve the best possible therapy experience.

Most of us have the strength and inner resources to deal with the problems we're faced with in everyday life. However, there are times when troubling circumstances come along that knock us off balance. It could be a broken relationship, a death, a job loss, any number of painful situations.
