It takes courage to seek out professional help. This may be your first time starting therapy or you are ready to continue the process after a new life challenge has come up. I strongly believe that you already have the inner resources you need to feel better, but may need assistance accessing these resources in a healthy way. Our work together will be about finding out what blocks you from feeling more empowered and alive. By learning new ways to be with difficult thoughts and experiences, it will be easier to meet the challenges and change that life inevitable brings.

A break-up, the loss of a loved one, anxiety, or adjusting to a life transition are common issues addressed in therapy. Most people go through difficult times; therapy helps you to gain better insight into your struggles and make lasting changes. Therapy can truly change how you see yourself, how you feel, and how you experience life. I work to create a judgment free, safe environment using a strength-based, holistic approach to meet your individual needs. I have extensive training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), though this is just one of the tools in my toolbox. I believe therapy is a collaborative process that is tailored

We all struggle at times. Although we try our best to manage, sometimes our struggles are more than we can handle. It is at these times that we most need someone to be there for us; someone who can be genuine, non-judgmental, and supportive; someone who will listen and accept us. It is at these times that we often find it hardest to ask for help, yet need it the most. I have been helping people during these difficult times for the past five years.

Often, people come to us without having explored psychological concerns in a sophisticated way. If they had past therapy, they were at times disappointed that it did not go deeper, as it left the greater meaning (the "roots") of their symptoms unexplored. As psychodynamic therapists, however, our goal is to see comprehensively, with thoughtful attention to the subtle depths and intricacies of your experience. In so doing, we can help to both resolve symptoms and impart meaning to your experiences, even those thoughts, feelings, and emotions that are often deemed painful or meaningless.

In my experience revisiting emotional distress can be retraumatizing and is not needed to be free from it.
