“What happened to my happy child?” Parents often come to me feeling overwhelmed and confused by their child’s obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) or anxiety. Often it starts with a small fear – about something bad happening to Mom or Dad, about getting sick, about failing a quiz – but the anxiety grows over time and keeps your child from the calm and joy you wish for them. Your child may retreat and avoid people and situations that used to bring them happiness. Many parents do their best to help them regain control of their thoughts and emotions, but they become disheartened when their efforts seem to make no difference.

Therapy is a powerful process of discovery and transformation. People begin therapy for many reasons. Maybe you currently feel stuck in negative beliefs, patterns, or behaviors. Or maybe you are looking for meaningful ways to change. Whatever your reason, we can work together to create long lasting change. Therapy can teach you how to be more compassionate towards yourself. You will discover and evaluate what is limiting your growth and well-being, and strive towards living a fulfilling and whole-hearted life.

Therapy offers a safe space away from the responsibilities of your daily life, where you can process, recalibrate, and practice new skills. One of my specialties is assisting people in difficult life transitions such as divorce, career change, death of a loved one, or a phase of life transition to name a few. Together, I can help you find some acceptance of the new condition, grieve losses, and find some hope for the new. With couples & families, my goal is to create space for us to slow down, understand the negative cycle you might be stuck in and build in ways of communicating where everyone can feel heard.

Most often these reasons include feelings of sadness, experiencing difficulties adjusting to life changes, difficulties dealing with chronic physical pain, emotional pain, trauma, depression, anger, stress and anxieties. Perhaps you are trying to heal from a difficult relationship breakup, leaving you feeling sad and defeated. It could be that you are a part of a newly formed blended family, living together for the first time, and instead of joy you are experiencing chaos. You may be seeking help, because your spouse has received orders for yet another deployment with the military.

The first step on the path to healing can be the hardest. Often times, we feel fragile, whether it be from past trauma, debilitating depression, anxiety, conflictual relationships, and the overall stresses attributed to life. Sometimes we feel surrounded by people who look but do not see us, hear but do not listen or understand which can lead you to feel isolated, disconnected, and misunderstood. Therapy is a space to navigate this desolate plane, a place to help you achieve a more fruitful and fulfilling connection with yourself and others. I have experience working with couples, individuals and families.
