Sometimes, we want to create change but struggle with some unknown parts of ourselves that seem to prohibit change. Habits, life long patterns and unconscious beliefs can hold us back from living the life that we long for. It takes time and courage to examine our beliefs and reach out for what we really want. As a therapist, I follow the process of each individual. Clients are viewed on a spectrum of health, rather than through a lens of pathology. This approach creates a very curious and creative focus that encourages growth at the client’s own pace. This is your time to explore what you really feel and how you want to live.

Intimacy, creativity, and feelings are essential aspects of nourishment when we are experiencing troubling times in our lives. The symptoms we experience such as depression, anxiety, or relationship challenges are often directing our attention to deeper meaning and understanding of ourselves. In my work with individuals and couples, we are often engaged in relationship and intimacy concerns and exploring ways to heal and experience self-love and self-trust. We all have survival, coping, and healing abilities that can help us grow and thrive under many circumstances. Sometimes assistance is needed to help these abilities develop.

Life is hard. Sometimes we experience things that overwhelm our ability to cope causing feelings of powerlessness, depression, anxiety, anger, or grief. Our experience may feel like a wrecking ball has smashed into our life, or maybe it's been a slow leak and the foundation is cracking. Maybe you have experienced a devastating loss. Or maybe you find yourself here struggling to hold onto a relationship that feels disconnected. Maybe you look good on paper, but feel lousy on the inside and wonder what lies beneath the heaviness. Maybe you grew up in a home with abuse or neglect, and you're ready to confront remnants of trauma.

Trauma, grief, divorce, conflict in personal or family relationships, parenting issues, all can be overwhelming and affect us deeply - causing anxiety, depression, addiction, broken relationships, and a need to disconnect. Gaining self-awareness and understanding how our thoughts and feelings impact our actions and interaction with others is important. Together, we identify goals, develop tools, and learn how to change behaviors based on new thoughts and beliefs, develop more fulfilling relationships, feel less distress, and find solutions to specific problems. Life begins to have perspective again.

Why do people go to therapy? Most often, it is because we are in a crisis of some kind. Although we all find crises painful, they are also opportunities for growth. In fact growth does not occur without discomfort, maybe even pain. Without that challenge, we will not grow. But we must also have support. That’s where therapy comes in. Through support and challenge, something new emerges. We don’t just get through. We grow. We come out the other side greater than we were.

Impossible is temporary. As a relational psychologist specializing in issues like trauma and addictions, I have learned this time and time again. The combination of a supportive relationship, motivation to change well-worn patterns, and clear, concrete guidance can lead to changes far beyond what people believe is possible. Sometimes it seems "impossible" to live a deeper, more connected existence. We may carry scars of rejection and betrayal that keep us from being our truest selves. We heal in the context of genuine, warm, accepting relationships that also encourage us to take risks. I so enjoy building these relationships.

My style in working with clients is positive and direct. I believe wholeheartedly in the possibility of change, and that the deepest, most powerful change starts on the inside. As our core beliefs, patterns and awareness shifts, life on the outside begins to reflect those internal changes, resulting in greater satisfaction and meaning. My approach involves working in partnership with clients, using the counseling relationship as a catalist on the journey to healing and growth, both individually and in relationships.
