You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom.

We all have within us everything we need to live confident, passionate, joy-filled lives. As young children, we are in touch with this deeper sense of ourselves...our gifts, intuition, what we love. It's easy to lose touch with these parts of ourselves. Life is difficult and often asks us to overlook our intuition and "think" our way through our challenges. My expertise is guiding people back to the deepest knowing of themselves so they can remember who they truly are and create the life they authentically desire.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is the crucible within which clients are helped to heal their pain. I take an active role in the therapeutic process by engaging with the client so he or she feels understood, respected, and seen. The feelings of shame, fear, anxiety and other painful emotions are worked through so the client feels taken care of. The clients I treat often come into therapy in a survival mode. I help people in moving from survival to a life of thriving and self love. Dysfunctional behaviors creates people who feel inauthentic, even to themselves. I assist people in developing true authenticity and a real self.

I know that starting this process can feel overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. Using warmth, empathy, direct feedback and skill building I can help you more fully understand yourself and your relationships and therefore feel empowered to start living the life you want to live. While it is important to minimize daily struggles that get in the way of being fully present in your life and relationships, I firmly believe that healing comes from exploring how our past experiences have affected the ways in which we interpret and interact with our world in the present.

When you think about how life has been making you feel lately, do you notice that you’re feeling drained most of the time? You find yourself running around each day focusing on the next 10 tasks on your to-do list & making mental notes of what you family or job are needing from you. You get a moment to yourself and your mind quickly fills with things you “should” be doing with that time instead to make it more productive. You pull it together moment to moment to do everything for everyone else, but feel like there isn’t any time or energy left for yourself. You know something needs to change, but aren’t feeling sure what or how.

The experiences of loss and disappointment that people don’t want to think about, remember, or talk about often come back to haunt them in their current lives. It is just those experiences that clients thought they had escaped and left behind in the past that ambush them at the most inopportune time, seemingly out of nowhere. I believe it is when people are able to confront the shame and guilt of their private phantoms, when they can understand and flesh out sufferings that have for too long been borne alone, that they may free themselves finally from the invisible loyalties that compel them to repeat the past. By uncovering and mourning the sources of despair and fatalism that had secretly pervaded their lives, clients can face the future with a greater sense of freedom and renewed hope for a better life.
