Do you have the feeling something’s missing? Maybe it seems there should be more ease, more joy, more fulfilling relationships, more creativity, more sense of direction, or just more “something”? If this seems familiar, you’ve come to the right place. Many of us struggle trying to get life right. We find that we have some problems we just can’t seem to get a handle on. Or we may have success tackling a specific problem, only to be met with another one. Or we find the problem we thought we’d conquered comes back. Or maybe it doesn’t come back, but keeping it at bay is a constant effort. What if there is another way? There is.
I am passionate about the opportunity to work with clients to overcome emotional and life challenges and empower them to develop the skills necessary to improve emotional and physical health and live a meaningful, content, and fulfilled life.

The core issues are addressed by first identifying and acknowledging them, gaining a better understanding of their impact, and then reprogramming the mind and learning coping skills to better navigate life’s challenges.

“It’s just not working. Maybe we aren’t meant to be. It shouldn’t be this hard. I just need my space. Nothing I do is ever good enough. I feel like we’re just roommates." These are some of the statements that bring us to our knees in relationships, and hopefully get us in the door to therapy. As humans, we are biologically wired to connect with others. Since conception, we have some level of dependency that our society just expects us to “grow out of” as we age. While in reality, we need a secure relationship with another to feel comfortable enough to take necessary risks in our individual lives.
