I look forward to the opportunity to work with each of my clients and take part in their journey for recovery. I know that life’s valuables can sometimes be dropped when we are in survival mode. Sometimes life unfolds in some of the most confusing ways and we are forced to push our way through. I would consider it an honor to join you in your process of recovering the pieces of your life that were lost or misplaced during the shuffle. I have a passion for working with individuals who have challenges in the areas of anxiety, depression, trauma, self-harm, anger, and communication.

The difficulties of everyday life can sometimes become overwhelming. When on top of those difficulties we add the stresses of illness, anxiety, depression, our identity, our love lives and more-we can easily feel burdened to our breaking point. We just don't feel heard. Sometimes these situations can linger for months or years, making it hard to meet our obligations and live our lives in the way we would like. However, those difficulties and stresses don't need to define who we are-or where we're going. It's my goal as a therapist to help you tell your story.

It takes so much courage to ask for help. In my twenty plus years as a therapist I have been humbled time and again as clients make that call and come in for sessions. People come in to talk about some of the most difficult things, from childhood abuse to a struggling marriage. It has been a privilege to be of service to so many people. I often get asked how I can listen to peoples stories of hurt and pain and I answer that it is difficult but so hopeful. That is because people don’t have to stay in that place of emotional, psychological, spiritual, or relational pain.

When I think of the concept of a person, I think of a being that is guided by a need to be loved and to give love. Love can take on many forms, but the most powerful form of love is that of self-love. Cultivating self-love and self-compassion is my personal goal of doing therapeutic work. I believe that we tend to pursue the things we feel like we want before identifying who we are. Our lack of self-acknowledgment and understanding can leave us confused and in states of distress. My hope is to join you on your path towards self-discovery, self-compassion, and, ultimately, self-love.

Resolving past trauma has also been a focus. The most basic goal for most clients is a return to previous functionality. Other goals include development of coping skills, resolving ambivalence, establishing a healthy thought pattern, increasing assertive communication and reducing anxiety.

"It's never to late to have a happy childhood" This quote embodies the core belief and hope that I bring into my practice. Most people bring wounds from childhood into their adulthood. These wounds show up in their lives as depression, anxiety, low-self-esteem and unhealthy relationships. In therapy, you can become aware of those wound and how they limit your life today, grieve your losses and learn healthier ways to get those childhood needs met. As this healing occurs, we can explore ways to live life more fully and joyfully and to thrive rather than just survive.
