After a crisis, loss or trauma each individual has their own unique way of coping. Sadness, guilt, anger, shock and feelings of helplessness are common. The healing process may begin with the passage of time and the support of loved ones, but many people find that professional help is beneficial during this very vulnerable time. I believe that everyone deserves to feel whole and live a life of joy and purpose. I'm committed to providing a holistic approach to mental health care, that honors the unique complexities of each individual and the mind/body connection.

Do you feel depressed, overwhelmed, anxious, or unsure of which direction to take your relationships, your job, or your life? Are these feelings holding you back from living the life you truly want? I love joining with my clients to explore these barriers and working to overcome them to create peace, health and happiness. Through skill building and meaningful conversation, you can move forward. In my practice, counseling can include humor; both laughter and tears are important parts of healing and growing. While I certainly respect that serious matters are discussed in therapy, we can usually find ways to enjoy our progress.

The importance of relationships within our daily lives is often overlooked or forgotten when we struggle. Focusing on relationships, I use personal interaction to promote healing inside and outside of the therapeutic setting. Through the use of video conferencing, I work with individuals and couples who struggle in areas such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief, as well as family and couples relational dynamics. My treatment style integrates compassion, support, and humor to build resiliency through self-regulation, encourage growth, and promote self-discovery.

Getting started is the hardest part. This is true of most things requiring significant time and energy. The decision to seek psychotherapy may not sound difficult, but acting on it can be. Seeking help suggests that we can't do it alone. Whether or not we can, I believe we shouldn't have to. Life is hard. Relationships are complicated. The world throws us a curveball and we find ourselves overwhelmed, disappointed or depressed. We lose a loved one, a job or have trouble finding meaningful work. We make bad decisions, or when we make good decisions, things don't turn out as we expect.

Therapy can address difficult situations but it is also helpful with normal problems in the normal course of life. I believe therapy helps to relieve painful and uncomfortable feelings and it can be a journey of self discovery and awareness that will lead to a more fulfilling life. People begin working with me when they are having difficulty adjusting to a current life situation and others seek to address their struggles with depression, anxiety, or relationships.

My practice is based on presumption that mind can create dysfunctional, disruptive and destructive functioning patterns, but it also has an enormous potential for healing from those patterns by recognizing, resolving, modifying and integrating them. Toward that end, I use therapeutic approaches where the therapy itself is "held" by strong alliance and trust in process, that as it deepens, allows for access and application of client's unique conscious and unconscious healing potentials. The therapy is effective with depressed and/or anxious individuals, couples with problems, as well as individuals with unresolved traumas or PTSD.
