Are you struggling with juggling responsibilities and feeling completely burned out? These are unprecedented times and we are all in need of encouragment. But when everyone is in need of extra love and care, who do you turn to for one-on-one support? Now is the time to make yourself a priority and shore up your innate resilience by giving yourself the gift of therapy. Symptoms of distress such as anxiety, depression, problems sleeping, irritability, helplessness and existential angst are lessened when they are normalized, validated, and given care.

You’re struggling with difficult feelings in your relationship with a spouse, partner, your child, family members, friends or people at work. Or you may be trying to come to terms with painful feelings about things that happened in the past. When you’re hurting or feeling confused, you don’t know what to do. People in your life may not understand you or your experiences. You may want to develop greater self-awareness and hope to find a greater sense of choice and freedom in your life. It takes courage to sit with the layers of your experience. And it also takes time. Therapy allows for time to look inside and be present.

My approach as a therapist is affirming, collaborative, strengths based, and tailored to each client I work with. I focus on providing a judgment-free zone so that clients have space and support to work on their personal goals. I hope to build a strong relationship with each client because I believe that a strong relationship is important to our ability to work together and helps to strengthen the client's ability to reach their goals. Therapy can sometimes be hard work and often means facing difficult experiences from our past. My hope is that I am providing a space where the client never feels alone in the process.

*Accepting New Clients* I love creating innovative & fun pop-culture based therapy interventions such as Roblox, Animal Crossing, and Inside Out. I use techniques like mindfulness, play, geek culture, and pop-culture to explore the chaos that can be everyday life. As your therapist I will not: try to fix you, give you advice, tell you what to do, assume what is best for you, have all the answers, make the hard stuff go away. As your therapist, I will: remind you that you aren't broken, give you room to access your own wisdom, support you in figuring out what to do, and work together on how to make the hard stuff easier to sit with.

There is an old saying: “No man is an island.” Yet, many of us often try to handle too much alone. I believe therapy can be an amazing asset when we’re feeling overwhelmed or isolated and when the relationships we rely upon most are strained. Feeling disconnected from a partner or feeling as though trust has been breached can be so distressing. In times like these we may just need a helping hand to bring us back together and that is where I feel therapy can help create space to restore balance and grow.

Are you falling apart behind the scenes? You might go at 100 miles an hour at work or school, but then find yourself completely burnt out and turning to scrolling, smoking, or zoning out to feel better. Perhaps your connection to your family of origin is rocky (at best). You may be feeling disconnected and upset, sometimes for no reason. And even though you’re trying to stay calm and be rational, you keep getting caught up with feelings of betrayal, abandonment, and shame. Maybe you've gotten really good at taking care of everyone else, but you haven't quite figured out how to take care of you. You're in the right place.

Maybe home has always been chaotic, you may have felt misunderstood by your caregivers as a child, maybe there has been explicit or implicit modeling or interactions that say staying small is better, staying small is safe, staying small let’s me belong. The media, family interactions, our friends, the very people who are closest to us may reinforce the messages you internalized as a child. You’re tired of confining yourself to a prescribed identity and you have a deep knowing that you deserve more, but you aren’t sure how to get there. You want to settle into yourself and know that you belong here as you are now in this moment.

We’re all a little flawed, and that’s okay: there’s beauty and depth in imperfection. To misquote Leonard Cohen, the cracks are how the light gets in. The cracks themselves are not the issue--without them, we’d have as much soul as an AI generated instagram influencer. Problems arise, however, when we become encumbered by the cracks. Our responses to suffering--the ways in which we try to protect ourselves and avoid future pain--can leave us feeling stifled, limited, and unfree. Therapy can help us chip away at these accumulated layers, and begin to articulate new, more comfortable ways of being in the world.
