When life hasn't turned out the way you hoped, it's difficult to know where to go or how to make change. The decision to seek help can be a difficult process. Many times, it's much easier to sweep your struggles under the rug and put your personal happiness on the backburner. It will be my privilege and joy to work with you in developing a life path that will bring you happiness and joy. It will be my focus to help you identify the specific issues that you're struggling with, where they come from, and how to best change unhealthy patterns of living to improve your quality of life.

Our relationships are the greatest treasures we have in life. When we feel disconnected in our relationship with ourselves and others, we are more prone to experiencing isolation, dysfunction and pain. While our pain can be a great teacher, feeling stuck and alone on the journey of life can feel hopeless at times. My goal is to walk with you through the healing process and support you in restoring life in your relationship with yourself and others. With a holistic approach to therapy, addressing the needs of the body, mind and soul are vital for restoring connection as we walk together through the healing process.

When you are feeling overwhelmed, it is very difficult to prioritize. No matter what is stressing you right now, it is very likely that negative self-talk needs to addressed and re-shaped. My clients are usually going through some sort of life transition or are finding previous ways they've coped are not working in the same way. Your goal is to solve current issues, but usually that means tracing the roots of past pain and past patterns of thinking. I've identified 10 symptoms of most anxiety AND a plan for gifting yourself with the best tools to deposit mind-clutter to the curb.

Every day and every moment, It seems that the shape and texture of our world seems to be in a constant state of flux. In this ever-changing state of being, it can be so easy to float above it all and lose our grasp on who we are and who we want to be. Are you facing overwhelming adversity in your life? Are you are having difficulty maintaining healthy relationships or struggling to adjust to new roles or life changes? Do you want to achieve fulfillment and direction in life but are unsure of where to start? Are you ready to become the best version of yourself?

You’re an imposter. People are going to find out that you’re not that great and they will leave you behind. You argue with yourself that it probably won’t happen. After all, you have felt the downpour of love from others, yet you have felt the pang when people are fickle. People see you as an alien, charming yes, but more often they prefer you to go with the flow than have you interject your out-of-the box ideas. You’re furious that it takes people forever to accept you as-is while you can read them so easily. Maybe that’s your fault because you haven’t figured out the right way to get them to understand.

Is your sink full of dirty dishes? What is your smallest dish? We all know that feeling of looking at a sink full of dirty dishes and just not knowing where to start so when things become distressing the best way to move forward is to “wash the smallest dish”. I know many of us can relate to this simple but profound metaphor, at times we become so overwhelmed by the nuances of life that gaining mastery in managing some of the “dishes” in our lives related to trauma, anxiety, depression, and stress can leave us feeling stuck or unsure of just what to do because all we can see is the sink full of dishes.
