I believe therapy can be beneficial for healing and self exploration. My intention is to help others to connect to and strengthen their own inner knowledge. Therapy offers a chance to find peace, acceptance of self, and connection to our spiritual heart. In addition to being a LCSW, I am a reiki practitioner as well as a yoga therapist. Depending on individual needs, some therapeutic work can be accessed by focusing on the breath and simple yoga movement.

You deserve a life that feels good. We know that even good relationships can get stuck in unhealthy patterns. Do you find that when you are trying to connect with your partner you end up in a cycle of communication that's not helpful or productive? Do you retreat and silence it until next time? There is always next time… Maybe this time they will understand…we become louder in hopes they see how hurt we are. The more we aren't seen and heard the more resentful we become. The explosions become more significant and the intimacy ceases, now you are just resentful roommates.—It doesn’t have to be this way.

Our experiences and our growth within those experiences, is what makes us unique. Learning to embrace the process is what makes us blossom in that process; everyday is a new opportunity to grow. Whether we are experiencing grief, trying to manage life with our experiences with trauma, suffering from depression and/or anxiety, working towards a healthy relationship with our spouse while trying to provide a healthy environment for our children and ourselves, we all experience growth differently. What we do with those experiences and how we choose to embrace them, that is our story.

I view therapy as an opportunity to use one own's strengths and values as a way to make sense of conflictual situations, whether interpersonal or intrapersonal, and how those characteristics are seen in the world. Ideally, therapy with me, will involve individuals who are looking to identify, explore, and create goals in a supportive and therapeutic environment. Therapy is meant to help you become your own "checkpoint" person. With the skills and knowledge you develop and practice in our sessions, it can help guide your decisions when faced with unfamiliar or familiar situations that question your values.

Do you struggle with communication, setting boundaries, or expressing your feelings? Are you feeling unmotivated, overwhelmed, or anxious? Do you bottle your emotions? Strong negative emotions can get in the way of the person you want to be and limit your life. You may find yourself spending more time dwelling on painful thoughts or memories that leave you filled with distress, self-doubt, and insecurity. It may also be that you worry about the future or perhaps your emotions or behavior have cost you relationships or opportunities.

With me, therapy is compassionate, authentic, and realistic. I have faith that you are strong enough to explore into those neglected parts of you and allow them to be seen and held. As a relational and systemic therapist, we will work as a team to understand your place in the world and write a life story that taps into your power and potential.
