Feeling alone, depressed, left out and afraid is a difficult place to be. Especially if no one understands what you are going through. You still have responsibilities (school, family, work and friends), but it's hard to get out of bed most days. If any of this sounds familiar than Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) are two therapies that can be of use. CBT helps those who have symptoms that are not trauma based and CPT helps you process traumatic incidents that have left you riddled with anxiety, sadness and difficulty sleeping. Both therapies are good to suit different needs.

Offering a holistic approach to psychotherapy, I provide a place for individuals who are struggling with stress and anxiety, grief or bereavement, depression, self esteem or relationship issues as well as many other challenges that we deal with daily. I will guide individuals to empower themselves and regain control over their lives. By exploring areas that are no longer serving you I will work with you to unravel the negative patterns that create barriers and move toward discovering awareness, balance and reconnection.

Is your child going through a difficult time, having trouble expressing feelings and/or communicating with others? Are they struggling with overwhelm, anxiety or difficulty regulating their emotions?

The way your child perceives themselves and the world can make all the difference! We use creativity and talk therapy to explore and process thoughts and feelings, and together discover effective coping skills for daily support. It is not necessary to know how to play an instrument to participate.

Whether it is anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, OCD or another concern, we are here to help. It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help and you should commend yourself for taking this step. Therapy is not an easy process and it takes work. However, that hard work can often lead to great insight and personal growth.

I help individuals achieve compassionate understanding of themselves and how they operate in the world, to gain confidence in their innate inner knowing and gain a sense of peace with their story, where they are and where they're going with a sense of self-empowerment.
