Transitions, welcomed or not, can be disruptive. As adults, we may find life stages, divorce/marriage/births or career changes challenging to navigate.

I know what it’s like to struggle, to be unsure of yourself and your relationships, to feel stuck. I believe therapy is an act of courage and hope, and I applaud anyone willing to consider the need for healing. My mission is to help you learn how to better help yourself, and I’ve been humbled by the strength I’ve seen in my clients. In our work, we’ll collaborate to uncover any negative self-beliefs, patterns of behavior, or ways of relating that get in the way of you living more of the life you want.

Dating and relationships can be challenging, especially when balancing work, family, and personal life. Perhaps some of the important pieces of your life have not fallen into place yet, leaving you feeling frustrated and stuck. Experiencing this day after day can feel hopeless, but I am glad to say that you CAN make things better. Men are often taught to dismiss and devalue their feelings. Perhaps it was a lack of support of our emotions growing up or a deeply ingrained acceptance of the social norm that celebrates a very specific definition of masculinity. Either way, it can result in unaddressed anxiety, anger, or depression.

I believe creating safety within a non-judgmental environment is crucial to begin the journey of self-exploration, recovery and healing. Each person has their own unique set of beliefs, experiences and needs. Working together, we identify the goals and direction of therapy. In my work with individuals and couples I use a feminist, empowerment-focused and collaborative approach. As a guide in my clients' journeys, I help clients face their challenges and find ways to move through them. I know the path can be difficult at times, and I look forward to working with those ready to explore those next steps.

It's been said that the ultimate purpose of psychotherapy is to introduce a person to herself or himself. The struggles of life can cause us to lose touch with our true thoughts, our true feelings, our true selves and, as a result, we can become dissatisfied and unhappy living the life that we think we’re supposed to live rather than the one we truly desire. Effective psychotherapy can reconnect us with our authentic selves and, once that has been accomplished, everything is possible. It is this principle that guides all of the work I do with my clients.

Do you notice patterns of behavior that you’d like to explore further? Feel dissatisfied with the way things are currently in your life? By drawing from interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral (ie. CBT and ACT), and psychodynamic modalities, I empower clients to gain insight, define goals, and develop skills/tools to live meaningful lives consistent with their values. I see psychotherapy as an interactive process that can promote insight, create positive change, and foster growth. I also bring this perspective into my work with couples and families. I can provide couples/ family psychotherapy as well as discernment counseling.

My goal is not only to join you in your journey but to help you dive into the core of your problems so that we can, in a collaborative sense, explore and identify effective and valuable strategies to overcome those problems. I've worked with individuals and families who have experienced extensive trauma, and trans-generational trauma passed down from one generation to the next, which has led to current issues with depression, anxiety, stress, self-esteem, and relationships. Battling such issues can feel lonely and exhausting, but it doesn't have to be this way, and I want to join you in your journey of healing.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
