Have you had a recent difficult or traumatic life experience that you can't recover from on your own? Did you grow up in a chaotic home where it felt hard to be seen or get your needs met? You may have felt an underlying anxiety and not enough soothing due to issues beyond your control. If you struggle in your current relationships and seem to experience too many painful feelings like fear, anger, sadness, shame, or guilt you probably have unresolved trauma, even if it doesn't seem to match your idea of what that is. I can help you overcome these damaging experiences and negative feelings so that you can feel more at peace inside.

Finding the right therapist can be overwhelming. It takes a lot of strength to begin the process of therapy and I applaud you for taking the first step. Entering into a therapeutic relationship is all about building trust. I provide a relaxed, non-judgmental, and compassionate atmosphere in which you can safely explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I truly want to get to know who you are and how we can work together to reach your goals, work on changing behaviors that are no longer suiting your needs, and modify unhealthy thinking styles.

I create a safe and warm container to help you explore the blocks and obstacles that are keeping you from knowing your joy and the truth of who you are. I believe that we all come into this life with a soul purpose, lessons to learn and gifts to offer. Yogis call this our Dharma. Dharma can be seen as our sacred duty, our purpose in the world. Our primary purpose is to find inner peace and joy. Each individual has their unique path and ways to find this state. Fear and doubt causes suffering and takes us away from our dharma. Trust and listening to inner wisdom brings us closer to it.

The foundation of my work with you rests in the belief that human connection based on insight and empathy is transformational. Often times suffering is a result of habitual patterns and behaviors based on fear, and difficult experiences. This drains our natural ability to enjoy life, and unfortunately cultivates a culture of isolation and aloneness. Our honest and trusting therapeutic relationship will transmute your aloneness so that you once again have access to your innate resiliency and wonder of life. It takes courage and vulnerability to reach out for support. Know I will be your ally.

To others, it seems like you have it all. But underneath lives a different story. Despite your outward success, you feel haunted sometimes by feelings of failure, conflict, self-doubt. At certain moments, a gnawing sense overcomes you, telling you: Something is not right. You've made changes but somehow still end up in the same unsatisfying patterns, repeating the same unhelpful behaviors -- feeling more and more alone. You want to understand your patterns and your past so you can create a different future. You want to learn to feel differently about yourself and how you relate with others. You want to find a different way.
