You deserve to be happy in your life and your relationships. Life can be a lot, especially right now. Our levels of stress & anxiety are at an all-time high and we are *supposed* to carry on as if everything is "normal." There is so much to manage with work, school, children, relationships, etc. Not being able to access our regular forms of support can make it feel impossible. If you are struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, and/or your relationships, you are not alone and I can help.

Seeking therapy can be such an overwhelming process. I hope I can make it somewhat less daunting by telling you a little about myself. I have been treating anxiety, depression, eating disorders, low self esteem and relationships issues in children, teens and adults since 2007. I use an integrative approach to therapy, which is specific to your needs. My therapeutic style is often more directive, as I see myself as a part of your therapeutic process-not a quiet observer. I use a balance of cognitive behavioral therapy techniques and exploring how your childhood shaped your current thoughts and behaviors.

Suffering can be emotional pain, physical pain, pain caused by love, death, or even loss. Sometimes our suffering can be more than we can bear and we need help to understand the source of our pain and how to move past it. Very often we are unaware of the thoughts that cause us pain. By becoming aware of the thoughts behind suffering, you can change the thoughts and promote peace. In other words, you can condition yourself to believe and behave differently and eventually suffering diminishes.

My integrative work with clients draws upon psychology, shamanism, and energy medicine. I believe that we have manifested into our human bodies with a purpose. My goal in our work together is to help clear away anything that is not who you really are (your conditioning/programming). Often our conditioning is running the show in the background (subconscious) without our awareness and can cause us to do things like self-sabotage or repeat the same dysfunctional relationship patterns. In a deep and gentle way, I help clients begin to shed core woundings so that they can step into their wholeness.

You are successful. Others often make comments about how "perfect your life is" because from the outside they see someone with a perfect marriage, great kids, and a wonderful job. But on the inside you feel anything but perfect. You are struggling to keep your head above water, you haven't felt connected to your spouse in months, and you no longer have the energy to even try to get your kids to engage in something other than technology. You're frustrated with most or all areas of your life and feel like you have no one to turn to that will understand.
