"I work with people whose parents and caregivers were unable to provide the emotional support and guidance they needed in childhood, even if they were well-intentioned. Ranging from emotional mis-attunement to outright abuse, these experiences lead to deep-seated (and sometimes unconscious) negative beliefs about oneself and others that precipitate depression, anxiety, unsatisfying careers, disconnected relationships, and difficulty feeling satisfaction and contentment. I collaborate to help you see yourself without judgment and to understand why everything you feel and every action you take ultimately makes sense when we understand it in the context of your life."

"Grief comes out of nowhere and slams you - hard. Whether you've recently lost a family member, career, your health, or someone or something else that you hold dear, the loss can knock you off-center. You used to manage your life pretty well, but now you can barely keep things together. You're distracted and irritable. You want to get back to normal, but you don't know how to get through the intense feelings that threaten to overwhelm you. And if your child or teen has also been affected by this loss, it's even more difficult to envision what "normal" might look like for your family, or how to get there."

"Imagine life if your "problem" disappeared. Really, take a moment. Picture a world free of the burden that holds you back, keeps you silent, leaves you feeling lonely. On one hand, you crave that freedom more than anything, yet I'm sure you're questioning whether it's even possible to rid yourself of this pain -- this shame, addiction, depression, sleepless nights, unfulfilled relationships -- whatever it might be.

This can be related to one incident or exposure to multiple or prolonged traumatic events such as emotional/sexual/physical abuse and/or neglect. Those with a history of trauma experience symptoms like depression, anxiety, anger, guilt/shame, sleep disorders, and the list continues.
