It's time to start feeling better. You've tried distraction, talking to friends. But like a ball pushed underwater, your feelings of anxiety, unhappiness, grief or sadness keep surfacing. Distress disturbs your life, relationships and sleep. Worst of all, these bad feelings, like a shameful secret, isolate you. It doesn't have to be this way. Asking for help to feel better is a sign of strength, not weakness. I am dedicated to helping individuals and couples recognize and overcome the obstacles between them and their dreams. Personal growth, intimacy and self-confidence are natural outcomes of successful therapy.

Are you experiencing: relationship issues, anxiety, communication & intimacy concerns, infidelity, conflict, big life changes? Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or depressed, unable to make clear decisions? Maybe you and your partner keep having the same argument with no resolution - now there's a wall between you and you don't know how to be close and intimate again. Together, we will create a calm supportive environment to promote healing, and look at past betrayals (affairs, broken promises), that may be hindering your ability to trust and move forward. Working with a neutral professional trained in mediation will help!

I help teens/young adults learn valuable skills that help them navigate their internal experience (ie. thoughts, feelings, and values) so they are better equipped and empowered to navigate their outer experience (ie. relationships, school, and work). Counseling with me can help teens and young adults build their confidence, bounce back from setbacks, focus on their goals, manage stress, and foster healthy relationships.

Unsuccessful relationships can feel like death. Sometimes we repeat relationship mistakes. Other times, we withdrawal but isolation can feel like a vast dessert with no end in sight. Luckily there is another way. Being in a healthy relationship with another human being is often a vital component to happiness.
