Life may be harder than you expected. You may feel stressed, depressed, or anxious. You may be struggling with a decision. Relationships with your family are complex. You may want to improve communication with your partner. Parenting is tough. You may have suffered a loss, & you don't know why it still affects you. You may have put a dream on hold while you attended to family matters, & now you wonder if you are still capable of fulfilling that dream. You may feel you have been given gifts, but you aren't using them to their full potential.

Imagine what your life could be like if ADHD, anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, or relationship issues no longer controlled your life. Imagine being able to manage the stressors that continually weigh heavily on you. When you have tried to resolve these issues on your own, but haven't found the result you are looking for, it's time to reach out for support. It's not about working harder, but smarter. My job is to provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment to allow you to find the balance and improvement you have been seeking.

“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” Do you find yourself wondering what you can do to feel better—less anxious, more confident, even happy? It seems like you’ve tried everything but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You may be able to support others yet you fall short on supporting yourself. You no longer feel like yourself and worry that it could get worse. Imagine what it would feel like not to constantly worry and to be confident in your ability to handle challenging situations. Therapy is a step in practicing self-awareness and self-care.

I am a certified life coach who specializes in clients discovering their life purpose, what their goals are in life and how they can attain these goals. Recently I have been working with many teenagers struggling with how to manage that difficult transition from childhood to young adult. I have also worked with many women work through difficult life transitions like divorce, empty nesting, career change, a need to get out of a stagnant relationship. Coaching is a fantastic tool to move people forward. It is a much quicker process than therapy.

Sometimes the circumstances that bring someone into therapy feel monumental or even shameful. Other times they might seem hard to pinpoint or articulate. The reasons people seek therapy are countless, and they all matter. They affect our thoughts and our relationships, often quite deeply, so they are indeed worthy of attention. My purpose as a therapist is to develop a relationship and a context that feels restorative and safe through which my patients and I can grapple with any and all concerns imaginable. Through intimate conversation and our shared experience emerge feelings, buried fears, and the previously unknowable.

Congratulations on taking this important step toward improving your life. I believe that in order to grow and make changes in their life, people need validation, support & practical skills. I strive to provide empathic, supportive & productive therapeutic relationships so you can feel safe while moving toward your goals. Each person's situation is unique and my therapy approach is designed to meet your individual needs. Many of my clients suffer from problems of emotional regulation (borderline personality, PTSD, depression, anxiety & bipolar) most effectively addressed by dialectical behavior therapy. However, no matter the approach, it is the healing energy created when two people sit together and mindfully focus on connection and healing that leads to healing and growth. Together we make that happen.
