Thank you for stopping by! Taking the first step in seeking support through therapy and/or assessment is a significant, courageous step, and reflects advocating for yourself, your wellbeing, and the relationships that matter to you. I hold the belief that, within each of us, there exists an intuitive wisdom, from which we can discover a sense of personal power. Life's inevitable ups and downs often make it difficult to see or connect to this source, leaving us feeling lost, or even powerless to change our circumstances. Much of the time, we actually may not be able to immediately change the situations in which we find ourselves. However, the way in which we relate to situations, people, and ourselves can be shifted. It is in these shifts in awareness and relating that magic can happen. Change can happen.
It is in the process of making such shifts that I am able to provide my help. Whether you are navigating challenging life transitions, experiencing imbalanced or overwhelming emotions, dealing with relationship difficulties, seeking self-discovery, or simply want a compassionate guide to support you on your unique journey towards wholeness, I can help. WAVE Psychology and Center for Wellbeing offers a holistic approach that honors your many dimensions, across mind, body, and spirit. By learning to ride the waves of your emotions, tapping into your own inner wisdom, increasing your awareness of your personal stories, feelings, and experiences, and clarifying the values that are important to you, you can re-ignite a sense of purpose and empowerment in your life.
