A Message from Will

Sometimes life can feel like wading through deep water, and no matter what we try we seem to end up right where we started. Whether we are feeling stuck, or just want a jump start and some new ideas, therapy is a safe space to bring our truth and to collaborate towards a brighter path forward.

I believe in bringing my genuine self to the therapy room to meet you, and that ultimately you are the expert in your own life. Working together we can illuminate problems and experiment with solutions to achieve your goals. My passion is in helping families to connect and helping both children and parents to understand and feel comfortable with big emotions. I value coming alongside your child as a gentle and genuine guide to help them develop and bring out the light that shines inside them. We are driven by powerful forces within us and at times it is difficult to go through these alone. I value a compassionate relationship with my clients where we can talk about real emotions, thoughts, and behaviors while feeling safe and secure.
