Life has changed beyond expectations. Many of our careers, educational life and values have become unsettled. I am a good fit for highly sensitive people, who amidst this change, are in a life transition such as college disruption, trauma, relationship problems and work issues. The pervasive stress, resulting in depression, confusion, anxiety, OCD, addiction and disruption, will be met with deep listening, reflection and compassion. For those whose minds have been effected by psychedelic drugs, marijuana, childhood trauma or bipolar tendencies, we will work together to create clear, practical strategies for health/recovery.

“Life is full of ups and downs. The trick is to enjoy the ups and have courage during the downs.” Throughout our life, each of us will experience stress, trauma, or a crisis that can trigger overwhelming emotions, making us feel out of control. Even exciting occasions such as marriage, a new career, or the birth of a child, come with change and can make us feel anxious and unsure in a way we have never felt before. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients cope with and navigate these changes.
