You feel so different from other people. Trauma has resurfaced and crept back into your life. You’re having trouble being your authentic self, or maybe you don’t even know what that is. You’ve tried everything, but continue to feel worse. Your drinking and substance use have increased in an attempt to just feel anything other than how you’re feeling right now. Your relationships are suffering—no one gets it. Your hobbies are no longer enjoyable. You have no idea why something as simple as going to the grocery store is Just. So. Hard. You are feeling overwhelmed and discontent, and you’re not sure why. That's where I come in.

When you’re walking through the woods and you cross paths with a bear, you expect a rush of adrenaline to warn your brain of the danger. You expect your body to fight back, to run away, or sometimes you freeze right in your tracks. This is your body’s natural chemical response to danger. But what happens when the “bear” is a loved one? What happens when you see the “bear” at the grocery store? What happens when a smell or a sound takes you back to a memory that feels like it’s happening right now? Maybe you know what triggers this response in you. Maybe you have had so many encounters with “bears” in your life that you feel numb.

LIFE.ISN’T.EASY. And unfortunately, society often sends us the message that we have to have it all together and *should* know how to navigate life’s challenges…but in my opinion, that’s a load of crap. It’s okay to FEEL. It’s okay to not know how to handle a situation or what to do next. It’s okay to have mental health challenges. And you don’t have to continue on this journey of feeling & coping & figuring it all out by yourself.

Each of us is a complex product of our past and present environments and experiences. Generally, we act or cope in ways that are adaptive or necessary under given circumstances. When our default methods of coping are no longer effective or our circumstances change, we begin experiencing distress in specific realms of our lives. This distress might manifest as anxiety, depression, anger, pain, relationship or sexual difficulties, social isolation, declining performance and/or impairment in daily functioning. As there is an undeniable connection between our psychological and physical wellbeing, I approach treatment in an integrative, collaborative and personality-based manner.

Many come to therapy to change patterns of relating to others and themselves that they feel no longer serve them. I believe that these patterns, hard as they may be now, likely played some important role for you in the past. Perhaps addictions, habits, or defenses met otherwise unmet needs in your life, but now have become limiting and compulsive. I see myself as your partner in a process of deep listening, a process which facilitates growth, healing, and new possibilities for relating to your self and others.
