During my career in Mental Health and Addictions I have worked with many different populations, though my passion has been working with people experiencing anxiety, depression, self esteem issues, folks in the LGBT2SQ community, and in recent years, a focus on working with Trans folks. Do you need help coping with anxiety, setting boundaries with those around you, or navigating changes in life situation? Are you coming out as LGBT2SQ and need support? Are you looking to transition and want a trans friendly therapist? Are you burned out at work and looking for someone to talk to? If so, I’d love to be of help.

Becoming a therapist has been an intentional journey that is the direct result of a desire to collaboratively facilitate healing in myself and those around me. It is difficult to be in the world right now and experiencing disconnection from ourselves and others can contribute to overall feelings of isolation and 'stuckness'. Our work together will foster the resilience and self-compassion needed to weather these storms and to recognize and celebrate the wisdom found in the struggle.

*CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* "The only way to find out where I was was to get out of the way and let myself happen." (Mark Epstein). In my practice, I help folks identify and understand the negative and self-limiting stories that they tell themselves. Often, these stories, or negative thought loops, keep people from living the lives that they desire due to the feelings of anxiety or sense of being ‘stuck’ that they produce. I advise folks in emotion regulation skills and techniques that can help them manage their emotions and navigate their situations, which can lead to more calm and grounded experiences.

We all have our own histories and desires for our futures. At times these personal narratives can feel like a resource and at other times a hindrance. Sometimes we feel like we’re stuck or are moving backwards when we want to go forwards. How do we stay present in our day-to-day lives when we are visited by the voices of the past or images of the future? How do we find and listen to the voice of strength, wisdom and resiliency that lives in each one of us, when that voice seems to be silent? I don’t offer pat answers, but instead offer space and guidance to help you to deeply explore the issues and questions that want to explore.

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.

You might find that you are experiencing a life changing situation that is evoking undesirable feelings, or have been sitting with some of them for a long time with no explanation at all. Daily life can be a challenge as we navigate and try to understand our life paths. Ensuring that we achieve a form of happiness and overall peace on our journeys can often be a little bit more difficult than expected. It is true that sometimes life happens and may get in the way of how we progress which can leave us feeling stuck and experience one or multiple of the many human emotions that may hinder our progress towards achieving a joyful state.
