Relationships should enrich your life—they should bring you more joy, depth, and safety than you’d experience without them. In my work, I know what’s at stake—I know about the comfort and vitality that secure relationships can bring us, and I know too about the fear and loneliness that we can fall into when by nature, we’ve stopped paying attention. These lows can leave us remembering our early days and wondering where we’ve gone wrong, or whether we’ve ever been right for each other from the start. I know the intense pain of losing hope.

Taking the first step to begin therapy can be difficult. I'm here to provide you with a safe and non-judgmental space where we can explore the factors that have shaped your present circumstance. By deepening your understanding with self-compassion, we can help you connect to your inner strengths and wisdom, and empower you to change habits of thinking and behaving that are no longer serving you. Whether you are struggling with low mood, negative thinking, difficulties managing stress or anxiety, feeling unsatisfied in your relationships or work, or feeling generally unfulfilled or stuck in your life, therapy can help.

Are you struggling to cope with various stressors: transitions, competing demands, and relational challenges? Are you avoiding things due to stress, anxiety, and low mood? Are you feeling stuck in unwanted emotions? Do you have a sense that these difficulties are related to habitual patterns in how you relate and respond to difficulties? We’ve all developed ways of being in the world and in relationships that may have protected us at some point, however, often get in our way. This could include holding yourself to impossibly high standards, struggling to set boundaries, or difficulty connecting with your emotions and needs.

Life is full of demands, responsibilities, and goals that can feel overwhelming. Your mind/body is full of self-defeating thoughts, intense emotions and physiological responses that impact your ability to 'be your best you'. You agonize over it. You try to ignore it. You struggle and hope but it won’t go away. You are surviving instead of thriving and untangling these patterns feels too difficult. Since you don’t come with a handbook on ‘how to get it right all the time’, you will fail and feel defeated. Not because you are inadequate but because you are human! That said, it takes a lot of courage to know when you need support.

My ideal client is someone who has experienced the depth of life's challenges, perhaps grappling with Trauma, PTSD, Grief, or Relationship Issues. They could be facing anxieties, behavioral concerns, or family conflicts stemming from diverse issues. These challenges have shaped them, but they haven’t defined them. Their goal? To find clarity, healing, and empowerment. They seek a therapeutic space that is both culturally sensitive and technically adept. They want to be seen, heard, and understood. They yearn for resilience, growth, and a renewed sense of purpose.

Life is full of demands and responsibilities that can feel overwhelming. Emotions and self-defeating thoughts can interfere with you feeling and performing at your best. You want something to change but untangling these patterns seems too difficult. When you learn to harness your emotions and thoughts they can begin to work with you and not against you, allowing you to take ownership of your life. I believe this resilience is a skill we all have the capacity to acquire. My goal is to make mental health therapy practical and effective, so you can live a happier and more productive life.

If you've experienced sexual abuse (rape, childhood sexual abuse, harassment) it's likely you noticed changes in how you think, feel and act. Maybe you believe that you deserve what happened or that there was something you should have done to stop it. You may see the world as a dangerous place and people as untrustworthy. You're likely on edge, hypervigilant and feel out of control of your emotions - or maybe you don't feel them at all. You can't sleep, relationships are difficult, you feel haunted by your memories, sex and intimacy aren't as they used to be, and it feels like nothing you've tried works. This is trauma.
