The Right Fit Matters
You want a therapist who gets you. One you can trust.
Opening up to someone new can feel intimidating. I understand. My personality is more relaxed in nature. I am patient, and trust the process--everyone moves at a different pace. I know that you aren't coming to therapy to be more stressed out, or worried that your therapist is judging you.
I'll spend some time really getting to know you and understanding your situation. I'll help you pinpoint your goals for therapy. Our sessions will focus on getting your needs and goals met. We'll do goal check-ins to from time-to-time to make sure we're moving in the right direction. More than anything, I want to be sure that the work we do is meaningful and valuable to you.
I understand that therapy is an investment--one that has the power to change your life. I respect you and your resources, so I strictly take-on clients that I believe I can help.
You see other people that seem it have it all together and wonder where you're going wrong. The disappointment is consuming, keeping you stuck and unable to do anything to change things. Something's clearly wrong, but you're not sure how to fix it. You just want to feel better--and to live a life that you're happy with.
You might start to believe that you're not worthy of one of those happy lives that everyone else shares about. It's easy to let this kind of thinking take you to dark places--places you don't feel like you can share about with anyone.
I get it. You are not alone.
Plenty of us struggle to to feel understood. Life can be so confusing, lonely, and painful at times. The reality can seem so different than what you'd pictured. It can even make you feel like you're somehow defective.
You want to feel good about your life. To stop making the wrong choices that leave you feeling hopeless. You want to believe that you are worthy of the life you want.
This is where I can help.
I've been helping people make meaningful & lasting life changes for the past decade. I know the pain and heartache that many people endure in life, and my passion is to help them heal and prosper. We have a basic, human need to have a purpose, and to feel connection to others. When those are missing, we feel empty--and empty leads to dark, difficult places.
I help my clients explore the difficult stuff. This is where you figure out the 'what's' and 'why's' of your issues. The we start putting that knowledge into action. This is where the magic happens!

Back to the Roots
The freedom to both accept who we are, and to learn new ways to grow and flourish, is the basis on which this practice was founded.
I created Tree of Life Therapy to offer a place of comfort, hope, and growth to people who were seeking an alternative to traditional mental health practices.
My goal was to offer a holistic approach to mental health care. In addition to looking at the presenting problem, I look at my clients as a whole--and encourage each one to incorporate adjustments that will benefit the mind, body, and soul.
The Tree of Life has a long history that crosses many cultures and religions. It symbolizes a strong connection to the world around it, and represents growth, strength, wisdom, and rebirth. With it's roots that grow deeper over time, and it's branches and leaves that reach toward the sun, it represents the balance and harmony of life.
Our ability to weather the storms of our lives, whether bending, breaking, or starting anew, isn't static. At any given time, we have the option to learn new ways--ways that align with the lives that we want to lead...with the people we want to become.
Tree of Life Therapy offers compassionate care and guidance to those who desire more meaningful lives and relationships. We have the capacity for amazing things, we just have to be willing to take the first step.
