"A fundamental human need is to feel emotionally close to others. Difficulty connecting in a platonic or romantic way can leave one feeling sad, anxious, and lonely. Often, we retreat from attempted connection to avoid potential pain, or become involved with others who may cause us more interpersonal stress because we don't know any different or because we don't want to feel disconnected. But isolating or engaging with harmful others can cause us to feel vulnerable, damaged, and upset with ourselves. This pattern often leads us to question if we are capable and deserving of joining and creating mutually beneficial relationships."

"You're not sure what changed, but you have noticed that you don't feel like yourself anymore. You feel exhausted and on edge. Your mind is constantly racing, and you can't seem to focus. Instead of doing the things you used to do, you binge watch TV or spend hours “scrolling” because that's all you have the energy to do. You try to sleep, but can't seem to quiet your mind, and you wonder if you will ever feel better."

"Life is filled with transitions, losses and pains that can be challenging to navigate and process while trying to function in the many roles we fill. We are expected to learn how to cope as we go, but can be left feeling depleted, unfulfilled, or stuck. We can become consumed with the past and anxieties about the future which rob us from being present in our lives. I value mindfulness-based practices and believe in the positive impact it can have on effectively managing stress and symptoms, disrupting patterns of reactionary behaviors and empowering us to live a more fulfilling life.

Perhaps you’ve found yourself stuck in old emotional patterns, struggling to make satisfying connections with others or manage complex feelings from past traumas. You may be striving to live openly and authentically, but unsure how to take the next step toward a more fulfilling life. As a counseling psychologist, I am trained to help you clarify what you want from life, let go of the emotional patterns that no longer serve you, and live with greater purpose and fulfillment."
