It takes courage to admit we are overwhelmed, and our go-to coping strategies are no longer enough. Seeking professional help is the first step towards change. I provide individual psychotherapy to adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, personality disorders, trauma, interpersonal difficulties, and low self-esteem. Throughout my clinical experiences, I have built a significant interest in supporting individuals who face problems in their relationship with themselves and others in the aftermath of traumatic or overwhelming life experiences.

I see clients in my practice for several reasons. Sometimes they are facing something especially hard, and sometimes they have not felt quite right for a while. Sometimes they are feeling anxious, or depressed, or they are struggling in a relationship or with work. Sometimes, too, people come in because they are looking for support in reaching new heights and expressing the potential that they feel they have, but struggle to see manifest. I work with many tools and strategies that are evidence-based, meaning that research has found them effective in helping people learn what to do to feel better in a difficult moment.

When we have suffered over a long period of time without much support or compassion, we come to rely on certain ways of being and relating that keep us safe but isolated from ourselves and those we love. This is normal considering what we have experienced. Trauma and lack of early nurturing skew our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us. Neither can be trusted, and this determines how we are in relationship within and with others. At the core of all of this is our longing to be in nurturing relationships because the need to feel loved, wanted, and accepted are so innate in us. Therefore, feeling the converse: rejection and shame is a blow to our very sense of self. We reject because we really want to be needed and accepted, and yet we are afraid. The pain we feel in this dichotomy is profound.
