"I believe the relationships with those we care about -family members, friends, co-workers, and romantic partners - form a significant portion, even a majority, of our lifelong happiness and sense of fulfillment. Our relationship experiences influence our self-perception, confidence, and feelings of security. Many of us seek therapy because we have difficulty identifying, understanding, or coping with our own (and significant others') emotional experiences, and we feel unequipped to communicate our feelings and needs to the important people in our lives."

"Depression can make you forget who you truly are. Chronic self-doubt and sadness can cause you to feel hopeless and negatively impact your goals, relationships, and overall well-being. You might notice your favorite activities have become unenjoyable, and everyday tasks you used to accomplish with ease, start to feel impossible. Feeling increasingly sensitive, irritable, and isolated, are all ways that depression can get in the way of you being your true self. My goal is to help you overcome depression, and gain a renewed sense of hope about the wonderful life you are capable of living.

"You are determined, smart and used to navigating challenges but this time the "sh*t hit the fan" and it's not working. Normally you could handle this yourself or push the worry away but bigger questions are arising and you are left feeling stuck, lost in ambivalence, confusion, imposter syndrome and anxiety. You feel like your dreams and what you have worked for are slipping away and it's impacting your life & relationships. This may be triggering lots of painful or scary feelings, memories from your past or the idea that now is the time to make real change."

This can mean romantic, platonic, familial, work-based, and the relationships with different parts of ourselves, like that inner critic we sometimes hear.
