You made the first step. You have listened to that already wise part of you that knows now is a good time to reach out and be supported in a way that is tailored just for you. Are you finding yourself struggling for emotional wellbeing or balance, are you noticing that you are reacting in ways that aren’t working for you, in life, in relationships, even in the choices you are making? Are you finding yourself wrestling with anxiety, and feeling paralyzed in fear, for you, your loved ones? Are you feeling as if there is no safe corner in your life where you can take in a breath and stop the daily push to produce?

We face so many pressures about who we should be and how we should live our lives. Sometimes we end up hiding parts of ourselves or conforming to belong. And we lose touch with who we truly are and what makes us feel alive. This disconnection to our truth can lead to feeling depressed, anxious, lonely, or not good enough. Imagine what it would be like to feel whole and accepted for all of your beautiful complexity. Therapy can be a non-judgmental space for you to reflect and explore what matters most to you. I can support you in healing old wounds and transforming patterns that lead us to feel stuck, overwhelmed, or depleted.

My work is trauma-responsive, client-centered, and LGBTQIA+ and ability affirming. I believe each child, family or young adult who comes to see me brings experience and knowledge that are strengths.

Therapy provides such a rich opportunity for growth and learning, helping persons to recover from the aftermaths of trauma, abuse and loss, meet the hardships of their lives and thrive. In times like this, with so much anxiety about our collective welfare, it can be an invaluable lifeline. In response to the Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, we are now offering teletherapy (therapy by phone and online by video) for all our clients, whether new or established. Also called telehealth or telebehavioral health, teletherapy can provide vital care and support to individuals, couples and families.
