Hello, You have come to the right place.

You know yourself better than anyone. You know your challenges, your situation, your relationships...of course you do, you're the one living it. You're just trying to find someone that can help you out of this rough patch. Things aren't working as well as before, maybe you're feeling stuck, anxious and stressed with a lot on your plate, and it is starting to take its toll on you. I know it might be hard to see this right now, but some of the fear and discomfort you are feeling can actually become the opportunity you need to make those new changes you've been thinking about...And that's why you are here.ย 

When you actively participate in therapy, new perspectives of your challenges will be revealed, strengths will be rediscovered, and your motivation to be consistent with your new changes will be restored. I am a Clinical Psychologist and my speciality is working WITH you in your current season of life so you can thrive, individually & in your relationships.

Yes, change can be very intimidating, so feel Proud of yourself for taking this first important step! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

At a time that works for you, I will be happy to answer any questions and set up your online telehealth services so we can work together to make the changes you want to *finally*ย ย see in your life.

~Dr. Serena ๐ŸŒปย
