Life sure can have its' ups and downs, this is true for all of us! Life can also be exciting and fun, as well as frustrating and painful. Life challenges can make us feel stuck, emotionally drained, ineffectual, and even hopeless. We all have strengths but sometimes we lose sight of them and feel lost, maybe alone. Therapy and the therapeutic relationship can support you in navigating an array of obstacles, finding clarity, opening up new possibilities, and moving toward a more fulfilling and balanced life!

It’s hard to stop drinking, dieting, bingeing, splurging, and giving away all your time and energy. I get the battle! I know the internal struggle that you wish would just stop! Because I’ve lived it! I have walked the journey. My story is more than 30 years long and is filled with languishing in control needs, trauma, chemical substance abuse, dependence, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, abandonment issues, anxiety, and so much more! My addictions were far more involved than the narrow perspective society holds; it wasn't simply chemical in nature.
