Find YOUR Balance

Today you are a step closer to being on a positive path of creating balance, serenity, joy and harmony.

As a solution focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth living.Through our work together, you will better understand and resolve challenges from the past, thereby creating a more positive life for yourself in the present. By applying solution focused therapy, problem solving techniques and my 5 Step Solution Focused Plan, we will work together to address your current struggles, identify your strengths, and make positive adjustments so that you can experience meaningful, lasting changes in your life as soon as possible. You will also change any perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling life and one that is filled with harmony, balance, joy and love.

If you are looking for support and guidance through a difficult situation or you are just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
