My goal is to help you make real change, whether you're getting through a difficult current situation or wanting to break old patterns that keep you from living a more fulfilling life. Common problems that bring people to therapy include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, grief, hopelessness, self-esteem issues, feeling stuck in a rut, or work-related stress. I believe being able to talk about these subjects with a warm welcoming therapist can really help.
Have you recently experienced or witnessed a traumatic event? Are you going through a break-up or some other type of loss? Physical, sexual, or emotional abuse? Your sleep problems, depression, anxiety, poor performance at work and relationship issues are often the result of current of past trauma. Many of my clients include those who have come from dysfunctional families where they experienced or witnessed abuse. For the past 19 years I have been helping clients to cope with and address traumatic experiences. I have extensive training and experience in the treatment of trauma.
Ineffective therapy can feel like an endless routine of talking without a plan for change. Are you ready to make true life changes, move beyond just talking and do the work that will help you move past your challenges? Together we can create change. First, we will take time to learn about your unique situation, complex identities, and life circumstances. Then, we will develop a plan. Next, you will learn a replicable process: identify achievable goals, overcome barriers to change, learn and master new skills. I believe you can learn the skills needed to overcome your challenges.

I have been working with families for over a decade. During this time, I have learned that the balanced approach such as DBT helps families get unstuck through the use of skills, and further thrive fearless of uncertainty of daily life.

This balanced approach helps clients learn to both accept their lives as they are and to work toward change.

I imagine that you’re looking at this listing because you’re dealing with a problem that you haven’t been able to solve on your own. You may be feeling agitated and worried much of the day, having trouble sleeping, or feeling lost or lonely or down in the dumps.
