I work with people who struggle with self-esteem, often survivors of childhood trauma. Perhaps you struggle with depression & anxiety, feeling unseen & struggling in relationships. Or you may stay awake at night thinking of the past, the negative “voices” still ringing in you ears & heart, telling you that you have little or no value. More than anything, you desire to be known and valued for who you are on a deep level, to feel and be safe to be yourself. Together, we will create a safe environment where you can heal and be transformed from the inside out.

Sex and intimacy can be the most challenging part of a relationship. Do you feel uncomfortable, ashamed or embarrassed when talking about sex? Do you ask yourself, “Is this normal?” or “How do I ask my partner for this specific need during intimacy?” Do you wonder, “Why is this happening to me?”

Each of us go through different seasons in our life where change can happen unexpectedly. At times there can be so much pressure to be successful personally and professionally and sometimes it can be challenging to be our authentic selves. Past or present circumstances can leave us feeling stuck, confused, fearful or hopeless. Those feelings are valid and it is important that they are heard and understood. I am a strong believer in the power of therapy where an individual can truly be their honest self. We all deserve a safe place to be open about our history, our emotions, and our dreams and I am here to offer that space.

If you are considering therapy, I'd be glad to provide you with a free consultation over the phone. I believe that the relationship between the client and therapist plays a significant role in helping people overcome painful emotional experiences, destructive interpersonal patterns, and other obstacles that get in the way of us experiencing our lives from a place of openness and security. I work closely with clients to explore the role that their unique circumstances play in how they see themselves and others. My approach to treatment relies on non-judgment, compassion, and respect for all of my clients.

Do you feel stuck in a life that doesn't seem to be going anywhere? Do you constantly worry about money, your weight, your sleep, your relationships, but things don't seem to change? Maybe others don't really know what's really going on inside of you. They all seem to have their act together, yet you don't. Are you tired of pretending that everything's fine, when inside you feel a deep sense that something is missing? Do you put yourself down, often blaming yourself for your troubles, yet being tough on yourself is not helping? Are you finding yourself trying to stay busy, eating or drinking to escape, but it's not working?

Take a breath – go ahead. The process of finding a therapist can feel daunting and overstimulating, much like the world in general. Bear in mind that you don’t have to commit to a particular person right away. What’s most important is that you feel safe, supported, and heard. It might take a bit to find someone with whom you resonate, so I invite you to take the time and space you need. Our society conditions us to feel a sense of urgency, and it’s helpful to remind ourselves that we are more than our productivity, and we are more than our labels. As a person and professional, I celebrate diversity and multiculturalism of all kinds.

Welcome, if you have found yourself here, it means you are thinking about making some changes in your life. Making the decision to begin a journey of self discovery can be scary to say the least. May I share some of my thoughts with you. I believe in the, "Law of Correspondence", which states that what is going on in our outer world is nothing more than a reflection of what is going on in our inner world. As within, so without, as above, so below. It would be my honor, and privilege to help you discover your best self.

Being human is a challenging experience. If you are seeking a therapist, you are probably aware that you would like things to be different. Perhaps you feel stuck with habits or behaviors you'd like to change, but aren't sure where to begin. You may feel anxious, angry, ashamed, or depressed, and would like to relate to your human experience with more joy. Maybe you feel like your moods are tied to the reactions of others, and this can be exhausting and unstable. Together we can explore what is getting in the way of feeling happier and more at peace with yourself.

Challenges are a part of life. When we are faced with a difficulty, we are presented with an opportunity for growth. This may seem impossible when you are in the midst of a challenging situation, especially if you are feeling alone. Reaching out for help is not easy. You may be wanting to develop greater self-awareness and insight, are in need of relief from symptoms of depression or anxiety, or wanting caring and unbiased support through a significant moment in life. I believe that each person is unique and I will start where you are and we’ll work together from there to reach your goals.

We are all continually moving through different spaces trying to establish who we are and what is important to us. Adjusting to these environments can be especially difficult if who you are is not embraced, whether it is within your family, at work, in the military, in a social group, or faith-based community. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I am an advocate for underrepresented individuals and communities, and try to be affirming to those struggling with being accepted or understood. Therapy can be a space to better recognize your needs, your values, and how to cope more effectively.
