"Whatever we think we believe. Whatever we believe becomes reality. Whatever is our reality becomes the basis for our hopes, fears and choices." Dhammapada. Sometimes the first step in improving our life situation is asking for help. But once that first step is taken, even if it is taken out of desperation, our willingness to make changes can lead to lives filled with hope, joy and peace. My experience is with individuals who experience a variety of life problems, particularly addiction; the issues that arise from addiction and those that led to addiction.

Do you sense that you are "just getting by" in life? Do you feel weighed down by a sadness, restricted by anxieties, or just a sense of detachment and numbness? Are you concerned about a relationship or lack thereof? Or perhaps there are old, unattended wounds still hurting from long-ago. Buddhism reminds us that suffering is universal, but not necessary, and that it emerges from a disconnection from our essential nature. Therapy with me uses mindfulness practices and trauma-informed therapy (EMDR) to reconnect with that nature and inquire into the barriers that resist such connection to ourselves and others.

"Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." --Albus Dumbuledore. Seeking therapy for yourself and your loved ones, is the first step to making your desire for happiness a reality. Although you may not know what makes you happy, the fact that you know you cannot continue to feel the way you do or be in your current situation, demonstrates your willingness to make the necessary changes toward a more fulfilling life.

Let's face it...relationships are hard! Individually, we are all just trying to get our needs met. We are hardwired to think and behave in a way that reduces fear and anxiety. Unfortunately, our thoughts and behaviors can sometimes negatively impact our connections with others. When we're not able to identify what it is that we are afraid of, we unknowingly displace this fear onto others, most often this being our intimate partners. We blame, ridicule, put down, shut down and numb out all just to avoid our fear. Fortunately there is hope....we can help?

Michael Scott from The Office once said "Society teaches us that having feelings and crying is bad and wrong. Well, that's baloney, because grief isn't wrong. There's such a thing as good grief. Just ask Charlie Brown." As a therapist, I would agree with Michael and add that all feelings are right and good and meaningful but sometimes we can get stuck in negative thought patterns, relationship conflicts, painful feelings or avoidance strategies. We sometimes need help to create and develop new tools for handling those difficult thoughts or situations.

It is not uncommon for people to talk and think their way 'better'. They have made sense of their problems and wish to 'just move on'. However, they can't seem to rid themselves of the emotional turmoil and physical pain that remains. My clients say to me, 'I just want to move on but my anxiety, depression, trauma, bad habits, pain, guilt, shame, family members...just won't let me'.

I believe throughout our lives, from childhood to adulthood there are circumstances that cause us to lose sight of our true authentic self. I value taking time to develop a therapeutic relationship based on trust, compassion and acceptance. My sessions are casual, with a playful caring approach with sensitivity and genuine understanding. I believe with a little help everyone has the capacity to reach desired goals. When working with children, I like to use play based techniques and movement to assist in regulation while discussing stressful topics. I work with children, teens, young adults, families and adults of all ages.

It is not selfish to take care of yourself - it is necessary! My goal is to provide a safe, judgment-free space for you to talk about what is really going on for you. I believe it is important to hold space and take time out of our busy lives to slow down and evaluate how things are going. By figuring out what is working and what isn't working we gain more control over our lives by seeing our choices more clearly. I have a unique way of balancing what happened in the past with where we are going on the future.
