You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom.

Making the decision to seek therapy, and finding the right provider for yourself are the first steps on the path to change. I do not take for granted the significance a therapeutic relationship can hold and see the work as a privilege. Like any healthy relationship, the therapeutic connection has to be rooted in trust. I hope to earn that trust with you by being present and engaged in our work. Life very rarely leaves anyone without the experiences of anxiety, sadness, stress, and pain at times. As well as joy, excitement, and satisfaction. You are not alone, and I would like to help you toward a positive leaning balance.

I believe that most of the time we work through life's ups and downs on our own. But, sometimes life becomes difficult to manage. Changes and challenges can become overwhelming and increase feelings of vulnerability, stress or anxiety. Other times, we just feel stuck. Therapy can be a helpful step towards feeling better. I enjoy working with clients to help them regain balance and perspective. We'll work together at your pace to explore feelings and experiences while challenging what may no longer be effective. I'll provide your extra support, guidance or motivation in a warm, safe environment.
