I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I work with couples, individual adults, and adolescents and their families. I realize that it is a big decision to enter therapy. When I was much younger, I remember being afraid of the idea of therapy. Then one day I experienced a crisis and found myself in front of a therapist. I mark that day as a major turning point in my life. Instead of having to deal with frequent uncomfortable feelings (e.g. anxiety, depression, feelings of unworthiness and shame), the clouds lifted and I just felt--well healthier.

Many are unsure if they have an addiction, or if they really are an alcoholic. Sometimes you drink too much, have regrets the next day, feel embarrassed about losing control and worry about your health. Drinking and using to numb the pain leaves you feeling very alone. You are sick of hiding, of keeping secrets. Should you stop altogether or figure out how to moderate? I can help this exploration in a non-judgmental way to find answers. Many people in recovery are often disappointed their ‘problems’ are not fixed; they feel stuck, depressed and anxious and relationship challenges persist.

Feeling confused, anxious, and unsure about relationships can lead to sadness, depression, second guessing yourself, beating yourself up emotionally. All you want is for people to like you and rely on you but you're too afraid you'll end up making them mad or upset. Conversations with co-workers, friends and/or family are difficult and often leave you spiraling, dwelling on it for days. You want the confidence to speak up, share opinions, and have the respect, love, and mutual give and take in relationships that other's have, but how?

Are you feeling distracted or overwhelmed? Perhaps you are lacking motivation and seeking clarity to connect with your passions and purpose in life, or desire more fulfilling, harmonious relationships. Maybe you’re tired of people saying you’re “too much” or “not enough” leaving you feeling not good enough or unworthy. You are not alone. Releasing old fears, anxiety, shame, guilt, and negative thoughts doesn’t have to be a painful, difficult process (deep breath!). It can be incredibly freeing, creating space and connection to a part of yourself you never knew was there.
