According to Mental Health America (AMA), before COVID-19, data shows that over the past 3 years there has been a steady increase in the number of youth and adults struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms and there continues to be an unmet need for individuals to receive proper care. AMA states, since the onset of COVID-19, the number of people looking for mental health services has “skyrocketed.” This past year has been painful for so many on so many different levels. If you're seeking balance amidst a myriad of uncertainties, let's connect. Therapy is not just another obligation. It's a gift to yourself and you deserve it!

If you are having the same arguments over and over again, you are not alone. I will be with you every step of the way. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples to interrupt repetitive Cycles where one person reaches out in frustration, causing their partner to withdraw and hide out. Couple Therapy doesn't have to be torture, and there doesn't have to be a "bad guy". I have helped couples with a range of issues from Domestic Abuse to infidelity to communication issues. I even use humor sometimes, but we don't waste a moment! I welcome couples who have been in couple therapy before and have almost given up.

There are a lot of new pressures in your world right now. Things are changing quickly and there's a lot of uncertainty. "What if I crumble under all of these pressures?" You appear calm on the outside but on the inside you're wondering if you're really cut out for this. Anxiety about all of the uncertainty and your ability to manage it is real. It makes it difficult to think clearly and perform effectively, let alone be present in your day to day life. What can you control during these times of sudden change? You're ready for a mindset change - to go from reacting to taking charge of your life in this new environment.

You have been trying to find some way to live a meaningful and fulfilling life. You have always experienced life with great depth and thoughtfulness, however, something hasn’t quite clicked yet. You perceive that others seem to have their lives together, although, in all of your rich internal experience, you haven’t been able to, just yet, put all of the pieces together. You may feel alone, experience anxiety, depression, or engage in compulsive behaviors you just can’t manage to quit. Yet something in you knows that there is a greater world out there, maybe even right around the corner, if you could just get a glimpse of it.

Sometimes we struggle to feel seen, find belonging, and have the kind of life that we deeply desire. We find that our old ways of surviving are no longer effective and may even be making things harder for us now. We get submerged in complicated feelings that are confusing and scary. I enjoy accompanying people through these issues, providing a supportive space for you to move through stuck points, process issues towards closure, and emerge to more genuinely appreciate your life and relationships.

Or why you think thoughts, over and over again, that aren't productive? Do you experience fear or anxiety for no obvious reason? Or depression? Have you questioned whether you are lacking in some attribute that other people have, like self-control or motivation, that makes it easier for them to avoid negative actions and thoughts and simply enjoy life more? It can be painful to contemplate these things, particularly if it makes us feel there is something wrong with us at a core level.

Change is an inevitable facet of life. Although some changes may be welcome, others may evoke feelings of fear, sadness, or even despair. Be it the loss or rupture of important relationships, upsets in one's career or academics, or taking on new roles and/or responsibilities; changes like these can be challenging. However, they may also present opportunities for deep self-reflection and personal growth.

Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently.

The poet, Rumi, wrote: "Don't turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That's where the light enters you." I went back to graduate school so that I could sit with others willing to do this courageous work. Maybe you are ready for such a journey.

A lot of times we continue to struggle, not because we don't want to change, but because we don't know how to do things differently. I can teach you tangible skills to have more choice and control over your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
