Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed.

I am accepting new cIients. I believe we all have times in our lives when we can become overwhelmed and may need help from another person. If this is your first time seeking help, it can be intimidating to choose a therapist and begin the journey to healing. My goal is to help you explore challenging areas of your life, examine relationships, and support life transitions. I work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, substance abuse and life transitions. No matter where you find yourself in your life journey, I promise you will be welcomed and provided with compassionate support.

Does life feel overwhelming? Hopeless? Like no matter what you do things never get better? You find yourself lying awake at night beating yourself up, wondering why does life have to be so hard all the time? Others view you as successful, friends describe you as happy and outgoing yet inside you feel lost, lonely, and unfulfilled. You know you’re not living your best life and that it’s time for a change yet you don’t know what to do and don’t feel like you can trust in your ability to make good choices. You know there is another way to live and are ready to do whatever it takes to make changes for the better!

Life is a funny thing. And often terribly complicated. During our journey in this world, we often face challenges that can feel too big or ongoing. Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently. But you don't have to. It can help to work with a therapist with a deep understanding of what it’s like with some of those struggles and who is passionate about helping others learn to thrive despite these adversities.

****Not accepting new clients**** Your loved ones need you, and you've been through worse, so you can handle it and you will look like you are perfectly fine doing it all. But on the inside, you are anything but fine. You are detached, like you just float through the stress and push down any feelings that might get in the way of you making it through the day. That edginess you feel creeps in on you, making your world feel so small. “What’s wrong with me?” is a constant tape that plays in your head. But calling a therapist feels like giving up or finally admitting that there is something wrong.

You don't feel good enough and you've never truly fit in. You're struggling with substance use, addiction, shame, and low self-esteem. Control, perfectionism and rigidity have become ways to manage life. If you're not achieving then you feel worthless. Nothing is good enough! You're harder on yourself than with strangers. You've felt depressed and anxious for as long as you can remember. It's felt difficult to connect with others. Relationships feel challenging. Anger comes out quick but it's masking other feelings. Even though life has been challenging you keep pushing forward. You're resilient and continue to bounce back.

Even the most self-aware humans can experience periods of confusion, stuckness, and destabilization, and oftentimes suffering has unconscious roots. I've dedicated my training and education as a helping professional to learn how to unlock messages from the unconscious to promote healing and well-being. I also strive to arm my clients with concrete tools to use independently, long after our work together is completed. I have many years of experience helping people heal, blending a variety of nontraditional and expressive therapeutic approaches with evidence-based interventions to meet the individual needs of the people I serve.

**NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** My approach to therapy is through the lens that people are usually just trying to feel “okay” and that this manifests in various ways. Our shared work is in owning the parts of our lives and our selves that we may habitually avoid or reject. I work with individuals to identify the creative ways they have used to block contact from their full experience, whether through substance abuse, codependency, or other subtle or more overt strategies. My style is direct and open, using a here-and-now perspective rooted in mindfulness-based and existential-humanistic theories.

Hearing from the heart and seeking help with paralyzing personal challenges can be a daunting experience. Finding someone to connect with in the process of personal healing is half the battle to a solution. Keeping the person at the center of the therapeutic process is a goal for me.

Women feel deeply, love deeply, and hurt deeply. We just do. Even with experiences like grief, trauma and relationship problems women sometimes go years before seeking help. We blame ourselves for how lost we think we are - or for our "brokenness." This is sadly normal but it's not true! That's why you might be seeking a therapist now, to get to the root of why life is feeling painful, possibly unmanageable. You want to uncover what hurts, improve relationships/communication skills and move more confidently in the world!
