Change is difficult and it is hard to take the first step in seeking out therapy support. I know it takes courage to start the process. Most people I see want to feel better about themselves, less anxious, happier, more content. They often want some help for their kids or teens or for the family as a whole. When you start therapy with me, we focus on what you would like to be different in your life, what a small step towards your hopes would look like. We connect to that hope, because hope is what keeps us going. We also work to connect to your inner resiliency, your ability to bounce back.

Do you find that your aging parent is very difficult to care for? Have you noticed your emotions being easily triggered by their actions or comments? Are you having difficult conversations with your family about their care? Taking care of an aging parent can be very emotionally draining but it can also be an opportunity for inner healing, reconciliation, and growth.

Some clients come to therapy because they need a chance to work through events that have had a negative influence on their wellbeing. Other clients may have never had a chance to know their own desire: what it is that they value and want out of life. Some clients come for support with a specific diagnosis, and others have a vague sense that something is just not right. Sometimes clients have found that they simply benefit from a place to focus on their own mental health.

We all have natural capacities to right ourselves when things go wrong, but we usually don’t feel that way when we’re looking for therapy. Instead, we often feel stuck and alone, overwhelmed by our feelings and unsatisfied in our relationships. I work with people who want to get unstuck and connect to their innate capacities for growth and change. My main goal is to help you have a positive and true experience of yourself and deeper connections with others.

Through my experience working with hundreds of clients I’ve come to believe that everyone is truly doing the best they can with the inner and outer resources they have available in the moment. I work with you to develop a deeper acceptance of yourself by exploring who you are as a whole person, from processing difficult experiences to bolstering your strengths and healthy boundaries. If you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, or low and unmotivated, we can work together to help life feel more manageable and meaningful.

In my sessions, I work from a trauma informed, anti-oppressive analysis, appreciating that trauma can be the basis of many challenges individuals may face. My practice is structured with a blend of cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational and solution focused interventions.
