If you are reading this, you are likely dealing with a tough situation and want to cope or make a change. Perhaps you are unhappy with where you are in life, whether it is with your job, your relationships, or even yourself. You may be dealing with stress and overwhelm, worries, or you might be feeling more low than usual. Maybe you have recently experienced a stressful event or change in your life, and you have no idea how to cope and keep going.
It takes great courage to recognize when you need help and even more to ask for it. Even the strongest and most healthy need a trusted mentor, healer, and guide in their life at some point. Loneliness and isolation while surrounded by people, friends, or family can be confusing and deeply painful. What about when you're being intimate with your partner and you still feel alone? It's like you're there with them, but not really there - not truly seen. Understanding your needs and desires is an important part of your ability to relate and interact with yourself and others. Self-awareness brings freedom; a chance to make your choice.

In my practice, I believe we have two types of relationships: the relationship we have with ourselves, and the relationships we have with others.

"Whether we know it or not, we transmit the presence of everyone we have ever known, as though by being in each other's presence we exchange our cells, pass on some of our life force, and then we go on carrying that other person in our body, not unlike springtime when certain plants in fields we walk through attach their seeds in the form of small burrs to our socks, our pants, our caps, as if to say, "Go on, take us with you, carry us to root in another place." This is how we survive long after we are dead. This is why it is important who we become, because we pass it on. Natalie Goldberg, Long Quiet Highway, walking up in America

As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.
Experiences including trauma, harmful relationships, adoption, difficult childhoods, anxiety, depression, and the impact of systematic marginalization can create difficulty in getting through the day. We feel disconnected from ourselves and others, out of control, irritable, and helpless. It can show up in our thoughts racing or feeling overwhelming, feeling badly about ourselves, and having low motivation or drive to find meaning in our lives. These can become "default" patterns in response to our experiences and stressors and can feel difficult or impossible to interrupt the patterns on our own, but you're not alone.
