You may be struggling with a life transition, anxiety, issues in your relationships or at work, setting boundaries, getting clear on your life vision, feeling unmotivated or depressed, like something is missing, or like you should be further in life or happier than what you actually are. You are likely very smart, professional, and highly sensitive, & probably had many dreams & ambitions growing up, that perhaps feel far off now. You would like to feel clarity, confidence, like those ghosts from the past are dealt with, free to be yourself, strong, excited about life!

Are you worried that if your relationship doesn’t improve soon it may end? Does it feel like no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to be happy? Are you struggling with constant worry? Have you tried to solve the problems in your life on your own and realized you need help from someone else? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here. And I know this is hard. You’ve likely been debating seeking help for months, if not years. But I’m so glad you found me and have taken the courageous step of being here.

My practice focuses on helping individuals, couples, and families who are suffering from emotional or physical pain or the aftereffects of trauma. We help them resolve the traumatic experience, as well as its consequences (e.g. physical pain, stress, disability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, medication dependence, isolation, etc.) Although most of our patients have not responded to prior therapies, we've had outstanding success in helping them move from feeling a severe loss to finding a new and positive beginning. We love to work with people who are ready to change and eager to learn how to do it.

Life doesn't come with instructions, and sometimes going through it on your own can be daunting. I enjoy working with adolescents, teens, and young adults presenting with relationship issues, finding personal authenticity, building self-esteem, and stress management. I find psychology and the human experience endlessly fascinating, and believe therapy can usher in change and transformation. The power of another holding you in highest regard when feeling most vulnerable is healing, and finding a person you trust to be with you in that space is a barrier in itself. My approach is strengths-based, genuine, and nonpathologizing.

Due to the virus, high anxiety has increased dramatically. My clients wish to manage their anxiety and use this time proactively. Many of my clients have wounds from the past and suffer from depression, fears, perfectionism, loneliness, burn-out, weight, sleep problems, addictions, obsessions, and/or pain around their sexual orientation. It's important to process great losses and identify underlying trauma. Rape victims will find a compassionate ear. It is wonderful when my clients are open to improve their (love) relationships and open their heart to the present moment. My clients are brave for seeking support and facing issues.

Do you want to quell your OCD rituals or tame your anger? You're not alone, nor do you have to solve your problem on your own. In fact, neuroscience has shown you really can't. Our brains are hardwired to connect -- within themselves and between individuals. By developing new self-regulation and self-improvement strategies, we literally rewire our brains, intentionally creating new neural pathways.
