You feel stuck, like something is wrong with you and you are not enough. You’re struggling, and you want things to be better, but you don’t know how to get there. You think to yourself you should be able to handle this, and you shouldn’t be feeling this way. You don’t know how to put it into words, or you don’t feel like there’s anyone you can talk to about it with. You want to feel understood, and be listened to without worry of being judged.

Are you less than satisfied with who you've become and the life you're living? Many of us struggle with acceptance and love for our bodies and are unsure how to make peace with ourselves and plot a positive path forward. I believe therapy is a collaboration where I meet you wherever you are and we become partners on the path toward your best self. Because mental and emotional distress happens in relationship, we begin with the most important relationship you will ever have – the one with yourself. The way in which we treat ourselves directly correlates with how we show up in the world and connect with others.

"I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become." ~ Carl Jung. Do you feel overwhelmed, have pain, grief, anxiety, depression, or unseen shadows that prevent you from healing or from choosing better decisions, relationships, and allowing yourself to matter in your own life? My experience and education can help people hungering for more purpose, fulfillment, and nurturing relationships instead of dissonance, exhaustion, and sacrifice, those who know what you were aiming for, but discovered you’re at the top of the wrong ladder. If you feel like you’re different or unseen, then I may be the psychotherapist you’ve sought.

Life can deal us a seemingly impossible hand at times, feeling as though we are in a storm with little hope of getting out. Having someone on our side who can offer compassion and understanding supporting us to express, laugh, cry, and cheer us on can help to further uncover and build on the innate strengths and ability within each of us to ride the wave. I strongly believe in the underlying strength and ability of all humans to cultivate daily victories that foster growth and healing and am enthusiastic to accompany you along for the journey if we are a good fit.

**Accepting New Clients** Oftentimes people come to therapy after a difficult, painful or confusing experience to reduce symptoms of anxiety or depression or because they are lacking a sense of belonging, self-esteem, meaning, or purpose in life. In addition, distorted thinking patterns and beliefs can negatively influence mood and behavior. I believe all people have a natural tendency and potential for growth and wish to reach their full potential to become more fully themselves and alive. People wish to be heard, seen, and understood in a non judgmental way, improve their relationships and live authentic, meaningful lives.

All of us are trying to get somewhere, to find meaning, love, and fulfillment, to make our hopes a reality. Yet sometimes no matter how hard we try, we can't change our lives in ways that we want. What we don't realize is that our very efforts to keep things together can actually keep us asleep to new horizons. Maybe this sounds familiar to you: You feel stuck in your drinking or drug use, your relationship, pornography, or other sexual behaviors that are causing problems you desperately want to wake up from.
