Are you finding it difficult to express your needs with someone in your life? Are you concerned that you and your loved one keep misunderstanding each other due to differences in cultural or gendered communication styles? Maybe you're going through a life transition that's adding to your stress levels, and leaving you both feeling in the dark about how to give and receive support? Or perhaps you are happy in your partnership, but are eager to grow together and deepen your bond even further? I can shine a light on those areas of difficulty for you both that remain obscured from view, and illuminate a new way forward.

Therapy is an amazing placebo. You do not NEED a therapist to learn, transform, and grow your awareness of yourself. I firmly believe whatever it is you are seeking to learn, change, or make peace with, you can do it. The benefit of working with a trained therapist who sees you, gives your sense of agency and innate wisdom the respect it deserves, and offers an outside perspective on your experience informed by evidenced-based theory and practice, is that the pace of growth is greatly accelerated.

My treatment is based on trust and safety: understanding how these may be difficult for you and finding ways to develop them with me. With this foundation, my patients find that they are able to gain new understanding of and compassion for themselves as multifaceted individuals. Our therapeutic relationship will be dedicated to holding space for all parts of you and your story, especially those that feel too challenging to explore alone.

You deserve to feel safe, connected, and understood and have deserved this for a very long time. It hurts when you think about that that you sought connection and comfort from someone important in your life, but did not get what you needed. It can be hard to describe the impacts of these experiences or the toll it took on you to grow up with important needs unmet. If this description speaks to you then you may benefit from healing work around relational trauma and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Seeking out therapy is a very heroic action in and of itself, perhaps your first proactive step into redefining your sense of self, creating a new life story, and taking a leap into the direction of self-care. If you are reading this, you may be in a state of uncertainty, or perhaps connected more deeply than you would like to be to the effects of depression, anxiety, or your daily life situations. Maybe, you are wrestling in a relationship with someone you love; perhaps, finding the words to communicate who you are and how you feel may seem unattainable and challenging at best.

Hi, and welcome! I’m glad you’re here. If you’re reading this, it probably means you are looking for a change. While I don’t know what that means for you yet, I would love to find out as we get to know each other over the course of therapy. It can be different for everyone- for you, maybe it means looking inward and finding out more about yourself. Maybe you are looking to learn some new skills and ways of dealing with your problems. Maybe you just want somebody to talk to or are having trouble in your relationship. Maybe, you are dealing with a specific issue such as anxiety, addiction, depression, grief, loss, or low self-esteem.
