"We all have strategies for dealing with stress day-to-day. But over time, many strategies can fall short or even backfire. We may find ourselves withdrawing and avoiding certain aspects of our lives, or overextending and pushing ourselves to the point of exhaustion. This can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, and irritable and can also take a toll on our relationships and physical health. One of my goals as a therapist is to help you identify changes you can make, both big and small, and tap into your motivation to follow-through on those changes."

"Are you tired of feeling sick and tired? Science is showing us that change is easier than we thought. Rather than dwelling on the past and trying to find the cause, change can happen rapidly when you focus on the future and what you want for your life. If you want to achieve rapid positive change and are willing to work outside of our sessions, you can experience tremendous growth that will change your life in positive ways. I value my personal connection with you and tailor my approach to what you want to accomplish. Together we make it happen."

"I believe that understanding and compassion are vital for building trust, mutual respect, and openness, all of which are essential in forming a therapeutic relationship that can encourage change. My style in therapy is a mix of person-centered, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and psychodynamic theories. With children I utilize a variety of expressive therapies including play, art, narrative, sand tray and bibliotherapy. In working with children, adolescents and adults, I focus on coming up with solutions to your dilemma's that can help you fairly quickly in your day to day life."

"We live in a culture that is constantly pushing us to strive for perfection. Whether in school, work, or our everyday lives, the need to constantly achieve can put great strain on our self and those we care about. This can lead to chronic depression or anxiety, social isolation, feelings of inadequacy, or even thoughts of suicide. It is hard to break out of this culture. It is hard to find flexibility of thought and a space to feel like we are good enough. Yet, through compassionate acceptance and practical skill building I can help."

"Psychotherapy provides a unique space for you to explore your experience in life in a profoundly important way. In a culture that does not make space for "negative emotions", and idealizes independence, there is little room to get to know the parts of ourselves that we imagine others will not approve of. When we aren't in touch with all aspects of our humanity, effectively shutting out parts of our experience, we can find ourselves feeling confused, depressed and/or anxious, having trouble in relationships with others, not enjoying our work, having difficulty processing grief and loss, or struggling with issues related to our identity."

This can include our past: traumas, conditioning, modeling, grief, anxiety, and maladaptive coping mechanisms that can show up in our personal, professional and romantic lives.

"Tired of feeling down, anxious, or simply not your best? Ready to do more than just talk about it? If so, body oriented therapy may be for you. With body oriented therapy, we will explore not only your thoughts and emotions, but also the physical sensations, postures, and gestures that come with them. This is important because tuning into your body can help you understand your feelings, thoughts, and life experiences more deeply. This understanding can support you in being the person you want to be and creating the life you want to have. The first step to change is becoming aware of how you are feeling, thinking, and being now. "

You prioritize everyone else's needs before yours. Now with the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is looking to you as they fall apart and experience fear and worry. Underneath, you’re depleted, exhausted, and anxious. You're overcome with uncertainty and you’re worn out with worry and stress. You feel frustrated with your anxiety and the more you try to understand it and make it go away, the larger your anxiety gets. You deserve a place to fall apart too."

CBT tools work right away to defeat your negative thinking patterns with 50 cognitive methods to choose from. It takes more than just talking about your problems to transform your anxiety or blues. It's possible to get yourself unstuck from overwhelm, avoidance, and despair, but it requires intensive work, both in and between sessions.
