We rarely can overcome all of life's challenges on our own, yet reaching out to others for help is often difficult. I recognize this fact as I seek to work collaboratively in helping you bring about the changes you want to see in your life. Therapy can be of enormous value in decreasing distress, more effectively managing emotions, better understanding the causes of your unhappiness, cultivating closer and more fulfilling relationships, overcoming patterns that repeatedly get in your way, and improving your ability to build a happier and more meaningful life.

My aim for my clients is to gain an attitude of self-compassion and an empowered mindset. I believe that, generally, we are all doing the best we can with what we have. Unfortunately, sometimes what we have are old stories or traumas deeply embedded in our minds and bodies that make it difficult to find fulfillment in ourselves and in our relationships. Together, we can create distance from such burdensome threats to our current well-being. Using a relationship-focused, holistic therapeutic approach, I work to help my clients untether from fears and allow them to reach their full capacity to connect, to love, and to live.

It might look like despising the body that you exist in and feeling like your only option is to change it. It might look like feeling like your insecurities are crushing you, and impacting how you interact with others. It might look like struggling after hearing your partner had an affair, not knowing how you will emotionally recover. You want a therapist who can hold your hand and remind you of your own light.

It can be difficult to be your true authentic self. Painful emotions such as shame, guilt, doubt, and anxiety can feel chaotic in the body. You might find yourself trying to manage these emotions through a variety of distractions including substances, food, over-working, and avoiding. Continuing to distract yourself may be helpful in the moment, however, it may not be sustainable. Imagine feeling more connected to yourself, to your values and goals, to your relationships. It may be a scary thought at first. These painful emotions that you’re carrying can feel like a weight that you have to hold and figure out by yourself.

I have 25+ years of experience treating anxiety, depression, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, grief/loss, trauma, and adjustment reactions.

Maybe it's problems in your relationship, increased stress at home or work, or traumatic experiences from your past of which you can't let go. On the outside you seem to have it all together, but on the inside you're secretly falling apart. Knowing the façade is beginning to crack.
