I am an interactive therapist, interested in helping clients reduce symptoms of distress, usually anxiety or depression and explore with them the roots of their distress. I find whether it is addiction, eating disorders, chronic pain, or straight forward relationship issues, understanding the "why" as well as the "how" to fix it, helps the problem and symptoms subside. Clients that work with me finish therapy with a greater awareness of themselves which helps them avoid difficulties in the future as well as a host of healthy coping strategies to help get through the rough times ahead.

These are anxious times for us all. Social distancing may be exacerbating struggles you were already experiencing or perhaps it is creating new stressors. If you were already feeling lonely and isolated you may be feeling even more so now. Struggles in your relationship that were easier to avoid with a busy life may now feel inescapable. Or, perhaps this time alone has given you time to think about changes you have been wanting to make in your life but now wonder if they are possible. The future suddenly feels uncertain. Whatever you are wrestling with, chances are these extraordinary times have made them even more challenging.
