Human lives are dynamic, unpredictable and full of challenges that can be exciting and life-affirming as they expose us to both the vulnerability and the beauty of our humanness. But sometimes life pushes us beyond the limits of our resilience – to the point of being overwhelmed or emotionally bereft. We may feel completely stuck, questioning everything about our lives, our values, and our purpose. These moments threaten our identity and selfhood as well as our relationships with others. We may feel alone, unlovable and unworthy, sometimes holding the weight of regret, secrets, and shame.

Many challenges we experience in daily life relate to conflict between parts of ourself. Each part reflects our body’s own loving attempts to care for us in the best ways it knows. When we shift one part of this feedback loop, the whole system rearranges. This is what makes transformation possible. My approach to therapy is client-centered and eclectic. I start with creating a non-judgmental, inclusive space for you to come as you are. From here, therapy can include talk therapy, body awareness, mindfulness practices, behavior coaching, evidence-based therapies, trauma modalities, and systems approaches as we reach for your goals.

Emotional wellness is not a given, especially for those who have experienced trauma or adversity. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for working through difficult feelings and internal conflicts. For example, one person may struggle to access their feelings and need help breaking through numbness, while another tends to get flooded by emotions and needs help containing their overwhelming experience. Making sense of distressing and confusing states of mind is at the heart of psychotherapy. Doing this is an act of courage, one that is made much easier with professional help.

Inherent in the human condition is the potential for suffering. At times, we may find that our pain, worries, and traumas have overcome our capacity to cope. When our capacities for coping become overwhelmed, we struggle to connect to others, to fulfill our daily obligations, and we may carry haunting feelings of shame and negative thoughts about ourselves, the world, and the future. Also inherent in the human condition is the tremendous capacity for resilience, growth, and healing. I believe that each of us holds within us a unique key to healing. Therapy is the process of compassionately clearing the cobwebs to find that key.
