I understand what it's like to live life ruled by devastating chronic pain and illness, crippling anxiety, and being highly sensitive that you feel everything! I help people resolve chronic pain, anxiety and sadness, not just manage it. Connecting the dots to understand how your childhood (upbringing, trauma, stressful events, family) may be contributing to your mental distress today can be extremely eye opening and transformative. Healing and becoming a secure capable human is the goal and completely attainable! I view therapy as a collaboration and as a therapist I am an active participant and guide.

My practice also emphasizes help for Chronic Pain, Anxiety, Depression, and problems in Relationships, as well as support for recovery from Addictions.
Painful or frightening memories can be healed with specialized therapy. Physical or emotional trauma can cause recurring nightmares and sleep disturbance, feelings of fear, guilt, shame, or physical pain. It can lead to reliving the experience over and over again, and may result in avoiding people, places or activities that remind you of what happened. Therapy can relieve the symptoms, frightening thoughts and feelings. It can help you to regain self-confidence and feel greater joy in life.

Do you feel overwhelmed, have pain, grief, anxiety, depression, or unseen shadows that prevent you from healing or from choosing better decisions, relationships, and allowing yourself to matter in your own life? My experience and education can help people hungering for more purpose, fulfillment, and nurturing relationships instead of dissonance, exhaustion, and sacrifice, those who know what you were aiming for, but discovered you’re at the top of the wrong ladder. If you feel like you’re different or unseen, then I may be the psychotherapist you’ve sought.

Many of us struggle with acceptance and love for our bodies and are unsure how to make peace with ourselves and plot a positive path forward. I believe therapy is a collaboration where I meet you wherever you are and we become partners on the path toward your best self. Because mental and emotional distress happens in relationship, we begin with the most important relationship you will ever have – the one with yourself. The way in which we treat ourselves directly correlates with how we show up in the world and connect with others.

In moments of stress, you will have less blaming ways to express what you need to keep things from escalating. For those times when you do lose your cool, you will know more about calming yourself down before saying something you regret.
