*Currently accepting new clients* You’ve worked hard on yourself, to overcome loss, addiction or trauma. You know in your head that you’re a good person…but your head hasn’t managed to convince your heart. You can’t shake the nagging thoughts: “I’m a failure,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not worthy of love.” Your unresolved “stuff” – the anxiety, PTSD, trauma – keeps popping up and causing you trouble. Relationships are hard. You can’t really relax. Anger eats at you. You’re tired of feeling “stuck” and uncomfortable in your own skin. What you really want is to finally feel at peace.

Things have been hard for people lately. You are not alone if you have been feeling stretched too thin. Relationships can be challenging; learning communication skills to express yourself authentically to your partner is what I can offer couples. Understanding your own feelings first, learning emotional language to communicate those feelings, and learning how to listen and be heard in your relationship is the basis of what I do when working with couples. For parents, I help you see your child as a whole person from birth, and assist you in becoming a confident leader, developing healthy attachments, and fostering emotional security.

Do you turn to food, alcohol, or drugs to deal with feeling lonely or rejected, or to cope with added stress and anxiety? Have you lost the joyful feelings that you used to have in life? Do you feel fear stricken, even in the “comfort” of your own home? Do you feel like there are so many things to manage and your forever growing “to do list” leaves you feeling completely overwhelmed? I work with women who have experienced tough stuff in their childhood and feel like they have lost their way. Sometimes we turn to food, alcohol, and drugs or, we withdraw from friends and family, just to cope. Does this sound like you?

Is your child struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, or difficulty expressing emotions safely? Are they having a difficult time coping with a trauma or loss? Maybe you want to strengthen your relationship with your child. Play is the natural way that children express themselves, and they need a special environment filled with toys and games to help them with the hard work of learning new skills and addressing unpleasant memories. Play and art therapy can be used to resolve trauma, teach and practice coping skills, increase emotional regulation, decrease anxiety and enhance attachments.

Psychotherapy can be an opportunity for healing and transformation. When life seems to be stagnant, painful or overwhelming, a therapist can offer solace, guidance and a container for the psychological process. I have spent several years accompanying others on the journey through healing and have a unique style of working with people. I seek to offer a non-judgmental place to work through whatever is causing pain in the life of the clients I treat.
