Life's challenges can sometimes push our coping skills to the brink, and what used to work for us no longer does. Relief from psychological pain comes when we face feelings that we are avoiding and develop new ways of looking at our lives. I have worked successfully with adults experiencing difficult situations at work, in relationships, and in life transitions. Through our work together, I will help you challenge unhelpful beliefs and alleviate distressing emotions so that you can free yourself from suffering, regain hope, make better choices, and live a more authentic, satisfying life.

My approach to therapy is open, supportive, and fosters curiosity instead of judgment. I work to help clients achieve insight about the origins of symptoms, while at the same time providing ways to cope with distressing emotions in the present. Our lives can be full of challenges that leave us feeling sad, overwhelmed, alone, and afraid. Sometimes we are unable to understand why we harbor such feelings. Therapy allows us to sort through our emotions, unhelpful behaviors, and negative self-beliefs so that we can continue on with more clarity, self-assurance, purpose, and happiness.

Nobody's life is perfect. At some point, we all will experience symptoms of stress, depression & anxiety. It's important how you manage those symptoms so that the symptoms aren't managing you. When pressures mount at home, work or in relationships, and it feels like you may spontaneously combust into flames- like the legendary Phoenix; then it's time to seek professional help. There is no shame to admit when you feel overwhelmed & struggle to function. Getting help to feel better mentally is no different from getting a problem tooth fixed or stitches to close an open wound-the ultimate goal is to heal & restore proper functioning.
