Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do your thoughts keep racing from one thing to another? Do you find you are excellent at taking care of everyone else but keep neglecting yourself? I would like to help. I am passionate about helping people to move past the "shoulds" and move towards creating the kind of life they want to live. Most of the time when we are distressed we are worrying either too much about the past or the future, or are overly preoccupied by what we imagine other people are thinking about us.

You may be in school, starting out, or in the midst of your career. However, you can’t seem to execute on these habit or goals that you KNOW will make your life better.

Are you stuck or struggling in life? Feelings like anxiety, fear, anger, depression, and hopelessness can linger after stressful, tragic events or losses. I want to help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. As Gabor Maté reminds us, “Trauma is not what happens to you. Trauma is what happens inside you”. In accepting that ‘we’ are not our circumstance, we can rise and become better able to secure a sense of peace and connection with ourselves and our loved ones. The goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.

This approach focuses on treating disorders, rather than people, and the latest research does not support this approach. I want to understand YOU, as a person.

My career as a therapist started as a career in theatre and film due to my love of narrative and storytelling. Over time, I became more interested in how the stories we believe about ourselves shape how we live our lives. I use scientifically supported treatments like CBT to explore these stories and see how helpful or not they are. Of course, we often already know that something isn't working, but it can be hard to believe anything different. To that end, our sessions usually include seeking out new experiences to develop new perspectives. My clients tell me they're surprised by how much more they can do than they first thought.

Your mind is constantly telling you that you need to do more, but it's hard just to get out of bed in the morning. Chronic pain makes everyday tasks really hard. Everyone around you seems normal and you wonder how they have it all together. Maybe family and friends are supportive, but you worry about being a burden. Or maybe your life is good on paper and nobody sees your struggles, nobody sees your pain. As someone who has lived with chronic pain and anxiety, I know how hard life can get. I understand how isolating it can all be.
