There are times when we need to explore some growth & healing work. Thankfully the ability to grow & heal is built into our human-nature, a nature that comes alive when receiving the support we need. Therapy is for receiving this support, and in a way that fits with you. And so I trust in this: Creating in your own expressive way a better life is what I know you are able—and meant—to do. Supporting you in discovering this for yourself will be a heartfelt privilege for me.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Lao Tzo Congratulations, you have taken the first step, and I am honored to work with you. Each experience/event is a chapter in your life. No one experience defines who you are or will become. You are the author of your own story, so I will not tell you what to do. Instead I will help you determine what you want the next chapter in your life to look like and help you get there. I provide a relaxed environment, using a collaborative and supportive approach.

Are you stuck in unhealthy relationship patterns? Are you coping with the stress of life in destructive ways- by bottling up your feelings or acting out through addiction or in toxic relationships? You do not have to struggle alone. During the different stages of our lives, our relationships, and our family life cycle, we can get stuck in certain places. As your therapist we would work together to help you find what you need so that you can move through these stuck places, experience healthier relationships, find hope and be free from destructive behaviors.

To me, psychotherapy isn't about being SICK; it's about being BETTER. It's about getting out of your own way. It's about not taking responsibility for things you can't control, and about owning your own thoughts and feelings. It's about being able to tell the difference between logical thoughts and irrational feelings. Therapy offers no guarantees, but offers an opportunity to understand and be understood.

The ways you interact, connect, and attach to others has deeply rooted ties. You may find yourself caught in between your actions and your intentions, as if they are working against one another. Maybe you’re thinking “How did I get here?” and “Where am I going?” What may have worked in the past, is no longer helping you live the life you wish to build for yourself. Between childhood and adulthood, we all encounter struggles but how do you move through them? We can work together to identify where and why you or your child may be struggling, how to root yourself in healing, and learn new ways of connecting to one another.

I believe the main goal of therapy is to remove the obstacles and blockages that preclude us from being genuine. My approach is straightforward yet compassionate. As your therapist, I simply hold the mirror up and allow you to reveal the parts of yourself that have broken off over the years as a result of stress, trauma, depression, anxiety, and other unresolved issues. Together we mitigate the impact of maladaptive behaviors and search for answers that are more closely aligned with your goals. The answers to many of life’s problems are internal, but we have been conditioned otherwise.
