Are you feeling distracted or overwhelmed? Perhaps you are lacking motivation and seeking clarity to connect with your passions and purpose in life, or desire more fulfilling, harmonious relationships. Maybe you’re tired of people saying you’re “too much” or “not enough” leaving you feeling not good enough or unworthy. You are not alone. Releasing old fears, anxiety, shame, guilt, and negative thoughts doesn’t have to be a painful, difficult process (deep breath!). It can be incredibly freeing, creating space and connection to a part of yourself you never knew was there.

Most people come into therapy in the midst of a crisis. Usually they have been sitting on their feelings and anxieties for weeks before they bite the bullet and seek help. They come into my office in a sort of terror, and their immediate goal is to make the pain stop as quickly as possible. I am much more interested in getting to know your pain than in getting rid of it. I want to know where the pain stems from, how you suppress it, why it scares you and from whom you hide it. That way we aren't "fixing" your pain in this moment, but we are preparing for the next time life inevitably throws a version of that pain at you.
