Sometimes we need extra help when facing particularly painful, overwhelming, or puzzling situations. By setting aside a dedicated time and place in which to bring your full attention (and mine) to the task of sorting out what pains or blocks you, you give yourself the best opportunity to craft the life you wish to live. In the company of a skilled practitioner, the process of therapy can help you work through old patterns and address the challenges at hand. You can experience a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and peace in your life and in your relationships.

Life and relationships can be difficult to navigate. I have found it is always easier to know someone is rooting for you to win, to know you have a coach in your corner, a confidant at your side. I see my role as a Marriage and Family Therapist in the same way; a source for receiving encouragement, guidance, and growth. We are all in different stages of the growing process and sometimes it becomes difficult to face it alone. Witnessing client after client prevail with hope, growth, and healing through talk therapy, both personally and in their relationships, reinforces my belief in the practice.

You're tired. Tired of being tired. And wondering "how can I possibly keep going like this?" Things have to get easier soon, right? In fact, they've gotten worse recently with new demands at home and at work. Everyone depends on you to get things done - to be there for them - as you always have been. You're running out of steam. You feel like you're invisible, that your needs just don't matter. But how can they when there's just so much that has to be done? You know you can’t keep going this way. You know you need help but aren’t sure where to find it.
