We are in this together. Uncertainty for the future: our health, our careers, our spouses, our children. The past seems to offer no guidance for what is to come. Loneliness and anxiety were already at record highs before the pandemic and the fall of the economy. Helping people with feelings of isolation and loneliness as well as nervous anxiety have been a substantial part of my work for over two decades. It has been a privilege to help individuals and couples heal the fractures in the foundation of their lives. Together we can find the solutions to your challenges and face what is to come with a sense of courage and confidence

It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.

Relationships are complex & it may be time to explore how you have been impacted by past unhealthy relationships. You may feel as if you are not enough, a bother or annoyance to your family. Often seeking acceptance from the family even though you know it may not happen. The struggle one has towards being accepted by family members in order to feel as if you are good enough can often feel unbearable or never ending. Survivors of past damaged relations can make one feel as if you have no worth or value & leave you struggling to identify this worth & seeking approval from others. You are not alone in these thoughts & feelings.

So, how's it going so far? It's utterly normal to feel thrown off center and out of your comfort zone. Coping may be a serious challenge, depending on who you are and how drastic the changes are that you face. For many, the new normal feels anything but normal. That doesn't mean it's all bad. But whether your focusing on silver linings or not, Covid-19 and its consequences can be a new source of stress and anxiety. I'm ready to listen and here to assist.
