Do you find yourself struggling with life in the present… anxiety, depression, memories from the past? Through reflection you realize that many of these struggles are tied to the past, perhaps difficult childhood experiences, unhealthy family relationships, trauma, or past difficult situations you went through. Perhaps you can't even quite identify the reason, you just feel the burden of heavy emotions and are feel emotionally exhausted. You want to move forward, live freely, and truly enjoy life, work, and meaningful relationships with others. You have goals you want to achieve and are tired of feeling held back.
In therapy, we will work to uncover and heal past wounds that influence your current struggles. We will identify beliefs, thought patterns, and relationship/communication patterns that are unhelpful and hindering you in life and we will work to learn more helpful ones. You will learn skills to deal with emotions in a healthy way.
My goal is to offer a fresh perspective, outside point of view as you achieve your goals in life. We will discover purpose, meaning, and hope for your future. The journey through life is tough but you don’t have to navigate it alone. Visit my website to set up a 15 minute consultation to see if we would be a good fit in working together.

Session time is a balance between learning practical skills for managing present struggles, with digging deep into family of origin issues, the childhood experiences, exposure to toxic dynamics, and trauma. I draw from CBT, DBT and ACT for coping skills to manage emotional roller coasters and negative/unhelpful thoughts. I use IFS/Parts work, EMDR and family systems work through past experiences.
