Not accepting new clients
In every phase of life, we are presented with new challenges: stress, issues at work, challenging relationships, feeling stuck, depression, difficulties with your kids, difficulties with your parents, pain, loss, anxiety, fear. It is not always easy to manage these challenges when they come our way, and sometimes we just need some support in processing it all, and figuring out what to do next. Everyone needs support, therapy is for everyone. In my practice, I want to get to know you, understand your challenges, understand your needs, and understand your goals. Together we can work toward overcoming the challenges you are facing.

Feeling alone while surrounded by people intensifies the loneliness. No matter how much you try to do everything right, you somehow always feel like you're looking through a piece of glass. Maybe you've kept a few friendships but lost more than you can count without any reason provided. You'd rather be home than go out because socializing is exhausting. You've been diagnosed with anxiety, depression, or more in the past, and while some symptoms have subsided with treatment, it doesn't seem to fully leave you. You've always felt like an outsider even when you try your hardest to fit in.

What am I doing with my life? If that question resonates with you, we should talk. Existence is beautiful, sure, but it can also be very painful. I focus with clients on identifying sources of pain or unhappiness in their lives, and discovering effective ways to manage or eradicate these. Emotional agony manifests in many different ways, from substance abuse to depression, from burnout to existential despair, from anxiety to self harm and suicidal thoughts. We will explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences together, and we will make things better.

It is a privilege to help others who are seeking support on their journey. As a licensed psychologist who enjoys working with adults, children, families, couples, as well as groups, I appreciate a holistic approach to lifestyle changes. It is important to consider physical, mental and emotional health to increase our quality of life. We don’t have control over some circumstances in life, but we can work to optimally navigate what comes our way. Cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, mindfulness for stress reduction, managing occupational strain and psychoeducation are some of the techniques I find helpful.

If you are seeking a deeper understanding of why you or your child struggles with focusing or learning, then I can help clarify what is getting in the way of reaching one's full potential. You may wonder if there is a name for the difficulty (e.g., is it dyslexia? ADHD?) or you may be unsure if having such a name would be helpful. More importantly, you are wanting a better sense of the strengths and weaknesses that you or you child have and what strategies and interventions would be most helpful.

I work with sensitive children, teenagers and young adults who struggle with expressing themselves, experience anxiety and depression, and have difficulties in voicing their needs in relationships with family and friends and school. Many clients I work with can begin to miss out and avoid opportunities for growth and may experience fear and lack confidence to take chances and try new things. In my approach, I strive to provide a relaxed and judgment free zone for clients to build up their ability to express themselves, develop an understanding of their wants and needs, and begin to participate in life more with new found confidence.
