I deeply value peoples' ability to be honest and kind to themselves so they can recognize when change is needed, but also forgive themselves for having struggled... because struggling is human. We all struggle, we all make mistakes, and we all have been in a place where we may not have presented as our best selves. Things in life can be difficult and we may lose sight of our importance and value in this life. I want you to know that I am here to remind you that you matter and that you are so much stronger than you realize or may give yourself credit for.

You want to do better, play better but your inner critic takes over. You doubt yourself, you lose confidence, you question why you are here at all, why you have sacrificed so much? Maybe you went from being the star player on your team to being a player on a team of stars? From the nutrition, the gym sessions, the skill sessions, reviewing game footage, organizing your life around your sport, I get it, I get what it takes to be a high-level athlete. Even when you want to block it out there’s a reminder or a trigger; a text message, a social media post, an article in the paper.

You know you deserve more; you want loving relationships, a fulfilling life, and unshakable confidence. You're carrying so much, working so hard, and still feeling stuck. You might criticize yourself but you know in you heart that nothing is really wrong with you. In fact, your thoughts, your feelings, and the things you do likely make a lot of sense. When we go through hard things, we often begin to think and act in a way that is based more in survival than expressing and being who we are. This becomes wired into our brains and we repeat it on autopilot until we realize our lives do not represent us and are no longer our own.

People search for therapy for various reasons. Most often these reasons include feelings of sadness, experiencing difficulties adjusting to life changes, difficulties dealing with chronic physical pain, emotional pain, trauma, depression, anger, stress and anxieties. Perhaps you are trying to heal from a difficult relationship breakup, leaving you feeling sad and defeated. It could be that you are a part of a newly formed blended family, living together for the first time, and instead of joy you are experiencing chaos. You may be seeking help, because your spouse has received orders for yet another deployment with the military.

You wake up and think to yourself, “I just can't keep feeling this way.” Maybe it’s the anxiety or the stress. Maybe it’s depression. Perhaps it is the overwhelming feelings of low self-esteem when you look in the mirror. Whatever it is on that particular day, you just know that you cannot continue to live like this and feel this way. You want to wake up in the morning and feel hopeful, excited, and confident to tackle the day ahead. You long to finally be able to enjoy your time spent with loved ones and be present — rather than feeling consumed by feelings of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, or poor body image.

The first step on the path to healing can be the hardest. Often times, we feel fragile, whether it be from past trauma, debilitating depression, anxiety, conflictual relationships, and the overall stresses attributed to life. Sometimes we feel surrounded by people who look but do not see us, hear but do not listen or understand which can lead you to feel isolated, disconnected, and misunderstood. Therapy is a space to navigate this desolate plane, a place to help you achieve a more fruitful and fulfilling connection with yourself and others. I have experience working with couples, individuals and families.

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." Rumi. I believe we build barriers as an attempt to protect ourselves from childhood and adult relational traumas however, these mind and body defenses are no longer necessary and block us from what we truly want in life; inadvertently causing more suffering than protection. The symptoms of these barriers manifest as depression, anxiety, addiction ,,, as well as physical illness.

I have worked in several areas of mental health care and have truly found my purpose and passion in assisting those who struggle with trauma and/or addiction. I understand how trauma has been locked within the psyche and having an individual feel as though they are stuck within themselves. I understand that addiction was a solution to several problems at the time because it allowed relief but in reality it only masked the underlying issues. My goal for each of my clients is to have them recognize their own strengths and abilities so they may continue or begin to live meaningful lives.
