Are you feeling overwhelmed? Maybe the pandemic resurfaced old issues and messed with your coping strategies. Maybe reintegrating into the world has been harder than you expected. If you already struggled with focus, motivation, and organization, all of these issues can pile on top of each other. You want to feel grounded and joyful, with a life that fits and feels like your own... not one you have to shove yourself into. You want your relationships to thrive. You deserve to wake up in the morning and feel ready and excited for the day ahead.

My caseload is full of dynamic and wonderful clients who seek to change the way they relate to themselves, their life circumstances, and their relationships. I have a particular interest working with recovering alcoholics actively working their 12-step program but are "just feeling stuck". In addition, I especially enjoy supporting women seeking to be authentic to themselves and those around them. Together, we will identify your goals and I will support you in pursuing your personal growth, finding your own answers and balance, and identifying and resolving how your past may be unconsciously impacting your day-to-day life.

My ideal client is someone who seeks a safe and supportive space to explore their identity and experiences. They may be navigating the challenges of being LGBTQIA+ or coping with trauma. Their needs include understanding, validation, and practical strategies for managing emotions and relationships. Their goals revolve around healing, self-acceptance, and finding fulfillment. They want to live authentically and thrive in a world that sometimes feels unwelcoming. They seek therapy because they believe in the power of self-discovery and growth, and they're ready to invest in their well-being.

I view therapy as a process that can facilitate healing and change, as well as understanding and fulfillment. Whether stuck in a conflicted relationship, feeling lost, struggling with depression or anxiety, adjusting to a transition or life change, feeling unable to break unhealthy patterns or resolve past issues and pain, it can be difficult to know where to start. Together, we can explore the issues you face and identify the direction you want your life to take and the steps needed to get you there. Once established, our relationship can provide the foundation and safety for this process.

Clients I work with struggle with a variety of difficulties, including depressed mood, low self-esteem, self-criticism, existential anxiety, social anxiety and desire for things to be “perfect” or “just right”. They find themselves repeating unwanted patterns, stressed out and unsure how to change. I often find that clients already have the capacity for change and growth but just need some support in unlocking the skills, finding their self-worth, learning new perspectives, and gleaning insight into their patterns. If this resonates with you, I am happy to help.
