With gentleness and compassion we can explore the places you may get triggered and the old wounds that continue to cause fear and pain.

There are times in our lives when we are presented with challenging circumstances. These experiences can be enormously difficult yet they also provide an opportunity for tremendous growth. The guidance and support of a trusted professional can be vital in regaining a sense of balance and ability to move forward in a positive way. What I have come to understand from my own life and education is that our suffering is often caused by losing connection to ourselves and others. With care and curiosity we can rebuild this sense of connection and foster the change necessary to create a healthy and meaningful life.

My mission as a therapist is to sit with clients in a way that supports healing and growth and encourages discovery of innate wisdom. I believe that we all possess the capacity to know peace, but that sometimes we become disconnected with our peace as a result of painful experiences and unhelpful coping patterns. This disconnection can manifest as anxiety or depression, addictive or other self-destructive behaviors, and even psychosis. When these symptoms interfere with our ability to have satisfying experiences, in relationships, at work, and in life in general, we can benefit from getting help.

Life inevitably brings challenges that affect our sense of well being and create strain in important relationships. Sometimes this can lead to just feeling "off" or incomplete or distressed about not being able to make sense of it all. Sometimes repetitive patterns of thinking and feeling can leave us feeling stuck and blocked. I believe psychotherapy offers a helpful and meaningful opportunity for sorting through these difficulties and identifying sources of strength and greater fulfillment. I know it can be difficult to reach out for help - I would be honored to talk with you if you are considering taking this first step.

Does your relationship feel terribly one-sided, with you constantly making sacrifices for someone without getting much in return? Often, when you wrap your life around someone else, accepting unacceptable circumstances to keep the relationship together, it can be emotionally exhausting and profoundly destructive. So, how do you change things when life is so challenging and you're alone in your efforts to fix it; when you feel completely responsible for the well-being of others at the cost of your peace of mind? Therapy is the best next step when your own efforts haven't worked out.
