Announcement icon I am accepting in-person therapy appointments while observing social distancing and appropriate sanitation protocols.
Do you want to feel more satisfied with your life and relationships? Are you stuck in an unwanted role or struggling to change unhealthy patterns? I work with adults who are dealing with self-esteem issues, difficulty holding boundaries with others, anger management, anxiety, depression, addiction, and PTSD/C-PTSD. Making life changes alone can be challenging since people tend to live on autopilot and may not fully recognize the dynamics that are playing out in their lives. Everyone can benefit from a fresh perspective. Having greater clarity empowers people to make informed, reflective decisions instead of acting out of habit.
As your therapist, my aim is to provide you a non-judgmental space in which to grow and reclaim aspects of your life. We will use your personal goals to guide our work.
To be effective, I believe therapists must engage in their own healing work. I have been in your shoes, and it has provided me a greater sense of gentleness and humility. I would like to offer you my support as you reconnect to the person you have always been.
