Are you struggling to show up in relationships, to work, at school, or with family the way that you want to? Feeling like everyday life is harder than it should be, while getting overwhelmed thinking about how to change it? Maybe you even tell yourself "I should be able to do this, what's wrong with me?" If so, you’re probably familiar with sadness, anxiety, and resentment as everyday emotions that are leaving you feeling tired, burnt out, unmotivated, stuck, or hopeless. Or maybe you're not even sure how you feel but you know something is just off...

Are you struggling with managing sexually compulsive and/or addictive behaviors? Despite negative consequences in your life and relationships, do these behaviors persist? Are these sexual compulsions leading to isolation, or feelings of guilt and shame? Or maybe you are the partner of an addict, and you have just discovered your significant other has been engaging in secret sexual exploits throughout your relationship. A discovery of this magnitude is traumatic and extremely devastating. It can leave you feeling alone, isolated, and as if no one could possibly understand. You're not alone, and you're not the only one.

My style as a clinician is warm, caring, thoughtful, and engaged. I aim to help you make sense of your experience in a way that is both meaningful and healing, given your unique identities. Therapy takes courage, asking us to explore the parts of ourselves that make us feel afraid, ashamed, or unlovable. Gradually, we develop the capacity to be intimate with ourselves, and only then can we truly feel comfortable with others. We may discover an inner strength we never knew was possible.

Each stage of life and facet of your identity presents its own obstacles to navigate. Maybe you’re a young person dealing with pressure from family & trying to define your identity. Or, maybe you’re an older adult who feels disconnected from yourself & like you’ve spent too much time caring for others. You might be an immigrant or first-generation American balancing cultures & trying to make things better for the next generation. In any case, it feels like change happens too fast, & it’s hard to catch your breath. All you want is to feel like yourself & find joy in your life, without feeling guilty for prioritizing your needs.

Hi there, I’m glad you’re here. I know that looking for a therapist can be hard, especially when you’re hurting or feeling low. I may be able to help. You might feel lonely, anxious, or full of guilt…or you might not know what you feel. You may be confused about the choices you make in life, or you may feel frustrated with the unjust world you live in. Many critical thought patterns, painful feelings, and unwanted behaviors started out as survival strategies to protect us during difficult life experiences. These strategies helped us cope in the past, but can lead to conflict and suffering in the present.

Worrying about the future (anxiety) or suffering about your past (depression) can interfere with how you feel now (your happiness) resulting in conflict at the most intimate levels of relationship. When things are going great with our family, partners, friends, and co-workers, relationships can be very fulfilling and deeply gratifying. However, by now we've all realized that relationships often change. What these changes mean is important and necessary for our personal growth. What are those changes saying about me or the other? If you are finding it exhausting waiting for you or others to change, I can help.

Therapy is the journey back to yourself, short-term to clarify a course of action or longer, looking at patterns that have led to pain: overwhelm, isolation, poor boundaries, addiction, depression, loneliness, stress, and more. Our focus will be on who you are, what you need, and what you want to be in your life. Even when you feel disconnected from yourself, weighed down by problems and compromises, there is an essential and valuable you--to be expressed and to be lived. My goal is to help you to connect to, build, and express this person. My life's work is with people working to heal their relationship with themselves

When seeking help for anxiety or other mental health related issues, having an attentive, engaging, and grounding presence can be the first step towards healing. I have experienced it as a therapist and as a client. It is my intention to provide this presence for those I serve. Clients who come to me are seeking a trusted person to help with anxiety that comes in many forms, such as depression, inflation, or panic. This can cause people to feel lost and wanting guidance. Additionally, I have found that people want to be more in touch with themselves in a calmer manner to find their own inner guidance to live life more fully.

Maybe you are dealing with new and difficult circumstances, or maybe you are ready to confront issues that have been bothering you for some time. Wherever you are, I will meet you there, help you discover where you would like to be, and move in that direction with you. Psychological pain often comes from being stuck in patterns of thought, behavior, and emotional response that were necessary to our self-preservation at one point, but that are no longer serving that purpose. You have gotten where you are today thanks to your inner strengths; my job is to help you build on those strengths while helping you change harmful patterns.

Have you ever asked yourself these questions - Who am I? Who are my people? Do I belong? Why do I keep repeating the same patterns in relationships? Why do I have trouble standing up or speaking up for myself? Why can't I give to myself the way I give to others? Perhaps you seem fine on the outside, but struggle silently on the inside.

We often seek therapy when we feel overwhelmed, confused, or frustrated by feelings that we can't seem to get past. We begin feeling stuck and worry that maybe something is wrong with us, or that we'll always feel this way. While it can sometimes feel hopeless, this often happens because of interference from ideas, beliefs, or fears that we don't realize we're holding onto. Therapy brings these to light, increasing our understanding of ourselves and our situation, and creating the conditions needed to finally move forward.

Hi, thank you for taking a moment to view my page. We all face a world that is so fast paced, full of distraction and demands on our time and attention. I view therapy as a space to take rest from this rush and cultivate mindfulness and a sense of presence. Therapy is an opportunity to take a moment to hear one's self and identify where am I, where have I been, and most importantly where am I going? Therapy can be a radical act of self care when we learn to validate what we need to help ourselves move forward and how to let go of what no longer serves us.
