Are you feeling stuck in a rut? Have you often thought about making personal changes and been unable to act? Have friends and family remarked that you appear anxious or worry too much? Have unsettled thoughts gotten in the way of your relationships, career, ability to relax, enjoy yourself or even to sleep? Have you been fixated on a substance, a body image, and/or an unhealthy activity? If these scenarios sound familiar, I may be able to help. It can be quite a burden to carry these thoughts and the guilt of inaction with you daily.

Here we are, coming out of the pandemic, and we're supposed to be happy, right? But if you're an introvert, a people pleaser, or you struggle with social anxiety/feeling not-good-enough, you might be dreading the world getting back to "normal." If normal means having to perform at a high level socially or professionally to avoid scrutiny, then normal probably feels exhausting. Maybe this last stretch of quarantine is the right time to learn how to feel really comfortable in your own skin, to honor who you are and how you're built, to actually learn to love yourself so fully that no one else's opinion can shake you or shame you.

I see therapy primarily as a process of self exploration which allows you to understand yourself better. Greater self awareness can help you either make different choices or experience where you are from a place of greater acceptance. We all had to go through a process to learn how to drive a car. Somehow we expect ourselves to figure out how to navigate our lives without fully understanding what drives us, how to get where we want to go, where the potholes are and how to avoid them. Before any of this can happen, you have to become more familiar with yourself through self exploration. My work is both thoughtful and practical.

We each possess a great wellspring of aliveness, which yearns to come forth and express itself, no matter what long-held beliefs act to constrict its expression. I see the process of therapy as both loosening the knots of old beliefs and finding ways to tap into this aliveness, in order to live a more authentic and satisfying life. When working with clients, I use an approach that is relational and collaborative, helping clients make the best use of the strengths they bring to therapy. My work incorporates experiential, somatic, EMDR, and mindfulness-based techniques.

The thought of starting therapy can feel overwhelming. Sometimes we are ashamed to ask for help, or embarrassed by what we are seeking help for. The truth is, though, that in order to move forward, we have to face those things that are causing our pain and unhappiness. And sometimes we need help to do that. Asking for help takes courage. Allowing oneself to be vulnerable takes strength.
