Are you too hard on yourself, driven to achieve or be perfect as though you might be in trouble otherwise? Do you find that constant striving is wearing you out? Maybe you're tired. Maybe you're in pain or dealing with chronic illness after ignoring your body's signals for rest, play, and comfort. Maybe you've been working your butt off to care for others or please them, only to find they don't really appreciate you. This is what we do when we feel not-good-enough. We work really hard, hoping that some achievement or accolade will finally make us feel okay.

We are constantly growing and changing. Throughout stages in our lives, transitions in our states, or shifts in our relationships we can be overtaken with different emotions. Sometimes these emotions can be hard to make sense of, hard to sift through, or hard to sit with. My intention is to be your support as your work through problematic areas in your life to live a more meaningful and abundant life. Through my humanistic perspective, I offer a relaxed and warm approach to therapy; thusly, I commit to remain present with my clients and customize the therapy that meets your unique needs.

Is your child experiencing challenging behaviors? Have you or a family member had a recent stressful event or transition? Having trouble with intense emotional responses or reactions? Has there been a trauma that is causing anxiety or upset in your family? Families can become overwhelmed by stage-of-life transitions, can be at a loss as to how to help their intensely emotional children, or address the special and behavioral needs of individual family members or children. I will help you assess and plan for these special needs and develop a family behavior plan that targets specific areas for positive change.

There are points in life where you may ask yourself if the path you're on is leading you where you need to be going. You may be asking yourself questions like: "Is this the best I can expect from my marriage?" "Is this what I'm supposed to be doing with my life?" "Is the work I'm doing the work I was born to be doing?" I will work with you both to get answers to these questions and to more fully accept the answers you receive.

I work with couples, groups, and individuals. Do you isolate, feel misunderstood, or have difficult connecting to others? Have you been told you are "too sensitive" or "too intense"? Do you ever feel like no matter how hard you try - you can't catch a break? Do you want to hide parts of yourself? Do you want to build more connection in your relationships? Do you find you and your partner continuing to argue about the same things? You are not alone. Often times our old wounds and experiences get in the way of living.

In the best of conditions, orienting ourselves towards personal growth is challenging and requires focus, dedication, and support. During major life events, staying on this mindful path can become overwhelming and we may find ourselves unable to find our bearings. For over 12 years, I have helped clients navigate difficult life transitions, such as recovery from addiction, overcoming trauma, healing from grief, cultivating healthy relationships, and achieving developmental milestones.

Something has you feeing off... You are a hardworking adult who gives it your all.  You want to feel good, connected, and supported.  But instead, it never feels good enough!  You are exhausted & overwhelmed day & night.  You find yourself constantly running on empty or on edge.  Simple tasks like scheduling and eating feel like chores. You can’t even enjoy a night out if it happens at all.  You get along with others, and so many people and communities rely on you. And yet, you feel like you don’t belong, or those you love don’t really see you. Let’s not even start with our society and world.
