Hello there. I'm glad you're here, but it can also be a difficult space to be in - reaching out when you need help. I wonder what's going on for you. Maybe you're so exhausted from running into the same issues over and over again with friends and family and you feel lonely and confused. Or maybe you're just so tired of feeling like you don't measure up. Maybe it doesn't even feel like you know who you are anymore. My hope is to join you in exploring your past and present so you can understand the narrative of your life, which allows you to create the future you desire - a life of self compassion and peace.

Feeling stressed and overwhelmed? Not good enough, lost, or insecure? Are you or your loved ones repeating behaviors, relationships, or situations, and wishing you could break the cycle? Maybe little things feel more frustrating or tiring than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. And even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is not to judge you--it's to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.

I was a middle school teacher for ten years. I enjoyed working with children and adolescents more than I did grading papers. I became a psychologist to help children and their families live healthier, more productive lives. I approach psychotherapy first from the perspective that insight into oneself provides then the power to choose and to change. If you don't understand what is going on, you are unlikely to make changes. Secondly, the power to change is enhanced by learning and applying better coping skills. Insight and tools provide a growth experience.

Pain is inevitable but suffering doesn't have to be. Suffering arises when anxiety rules us. We are anxious about facing our fears so we avoid. We are anxious about letting others get close so we isolate. Psychotherapy offers a doorway out of these loops. Yes, life throws difficulties and tragedies at us. But it is our internal reactions to circumstances and relationships that hinders our ability to thrive (instead of merely coping). Self-empowerment comes from having the courage to face our internal world in all its messiness and complexity. As a therapist my mission is to come alongside you on that sacred inward journey.

I have a direct and compassionate style of working with children, adolescents, college students, and adults. I assist clients in reducing anxiety and depression in order to feel confident, achieve a healthier sense of self, and live in accordance to their values. I believe honoring one's intuition is the key to healing- whether that be through play therapy, creative art interventions, or talk therapy.

Have you wondered whether some of the issues you have dealt with - for instance, being incapable of doing things or repeatedly making bad choices - might tell something about your subjective dilemmas?

I have seen how the powerful process of psychotherapy helps people cope with life's challenges and find inner strength. Therapy reduces suffering and promotes resilience. Additionally it helps improve communication and understanding in relationships. Effective psychotherapy elicits change and guides people toward living more authentically. I realize that people often seek help at their most vulnerable times. I am aware of of this as I guide my clients toward a better understanding of themselves and their inner world, thereby allowing for emotional growth, peace and the attainment of personal goals.
