I hold a belief that every individual I come across holds within him/herself the power to heal. My role is to help those individuals access their power when they feel they have none. I specialize in the treatment of trauma and anxiety disorders and I am passionate about bringing a sense of hope and empowerment to the individuals I serve. My hope is that individuals will learn to embrace their power, learn to be at ease in their own skin and find loving and fulfilling connection to others; bringing them closer to their personal healing and, ultimately, to the life they dream of living.

My practice focuses on individual therapy for adults with anxiety and stress-related issues. Over the past year, many people have experienced an increase in stress that has overwhelmed their usual ways of coping. This includes stress related to interpersonal relationships, work or home life, or worsening of previously managed anxiety. If this resonates for you, my goal for you in therapy is to empower you with a better understanding of yourself, provide you with a new skill set to manage stress, and enable you to live a life you value.

We live in a culture that is constantly pushing us to strive for perfection. Whether in school, work, or our everyday lives, the need to constantly achieve can put great strain on our self and those we care about. This can lead to chronic depression or anxiety, social isolation, feelings of inadequacy, or even thoughts of suicide. It is hard to break out of this culture. It is hard to find flexibility of thought and a space to feel like we are good enough. Yet, through compassionate acceptance and practical skill building I can help.

As a therapist I believe each person has the capability and potential of living outside the bounds of fear, anxiety, apathy, and/or depression if they so desire. I see my role as both collaborator and guide, bearing witness to my client's stories and helping grow insight so new, more empowering stories might be written. I do this using several techniques including changing maladaptive, deeply ingrained thinking/feeling/behavior patterns, and exploring challenging childhood, family, and relationship history. I have experience treating issues of anxiety, depression, destructive relationship patterns, and clients with painful spiritual experiences they want assistance healing.

Conflict, distance, not knowing the way forward, these are all very common struggles. Fortunately, in depth scientific research has revealed the key skills that lead to happy relationships. Ground breaking research into gender, sexuality, and eroticism has also revealed the key skills that lead to pleasure fulfillment. With these advanced skills in hand, you can learn how to bring out the best in you and your partner.

We all need special attention at times in our lives. Working on emotional problems by yourself can be hard, even when you have support in your life. If you are feeling lost, overwhelmed or are searching for self-understanding, therapy is an excellent choice. Just as finding the deeper meaning in suffering may be important, sometimes simply solving day to day practical issues is as well. Either way, the value of inner work far exceeds what we can imagine.
