It isn't difficult to feel scared, unlovable, vulnerable and not good enough in "our world gone mad", let alone if you have a history of being abused or neglected. Therapy can help you slowly make sense of the past so that you can encounter the present moment with more awareness and vigor. I am psychotherapist with an abiding love of the arts and work with sensitive individuals, many of whom have histories of abuse/neglect and are struggling to make sense of their past and present lives in order to find a greater sense of freedom/comfort within their own skin.

Emotional problems can be difficult to cope with and resolve alone. Whether you have experienced a painful loss, are suffering from anxiety or depression, are feeling stifled in your relationships, or cannot seem to reach your goals, the help of an experienced professional can assist you in initiating the changes that will allow you to lead a more satisfying life. Understanding your emotional life is essential to your personal and professional well being. We use to have this top-down notion that reason was superior to emotion. However, recent research clearly shows that we think better when we know and can process our emotions.

(I am accepting new clients at this time) Sometimes seeing something beautiful, inspiring, or even worrisome could make us want change. You may have reached a point in your life where you’re ready for change. And change can be difficult sometimes. Are you not feeling good about yourself? Maybe you're struggling to find some balance in your life. Have your child/teen's behaviors gotten challenging? Or maybe they're struggling with adapting to school thru zoom. It says a lot that you’re reaching out for support, whether it’s for you or your child/teen. I provide psychological assessment and therapy services for youth and adults.
