Stories have always fascinated me. They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another. They are also a powerful vehicle for how we perceive, interpret, define and live our lives, yet sometimes it can be easy to forget that we can be the authors of our story, not just a character proceeding along some previously determined narrative.

Through therapy, I help be an outsider’s perspective and provide a nonjudgmental, safe environment for the client to work through difficult problems and lead a healthy, empowered life. Therapy can be beneficial to someone who is struggling emotionally or needs to sort out day-to-day problems. It can also assist a person to define their goals, gain coping skills, and clarify what they want out of life. I help improve communication skills to convey emotions and develop relationships along with setting boundaries that help you stay connected to your values.

Are you looking for ways to create a healthy change in your life? People often come to counseling with the desire to think and feel better, which can be a great start. I enjoy working with people and helping them learn how to create changes in their life. Counseling can be a process of growing, learning, and exploring self-identity. It is also about meeting people where they are and working to improve their understanding of themselves. This extends to having an open mind when it comes to race, gender, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, and relationship orientation.

Disorders such as depression and anxiety are often complicated by substance abuse, and vice versa. I'm experienced in treating such co-occurring disorders and other issues in a supportive, open and effective way that respects clients' autonomy and values. What this means in practice is a customized approach to each individual, based on their specific needs, that draws on different therapeutic traditions and techniques. These may include psychodynamic, looking at close early relationships and issues; cognitive-behavioral therapy, untangling connections between thoughts, feelings and behaviors; mindfulness, drawing on ancient mind-body practices such as meditation that neuroscience has increasingly validated; as well as others.

Life’s challenges happen suddenly. Without warning it feels like you can’t navigate through with confidence and calm. Instead, you are plagued with worry, hesitation, anxiety, and depression. At times, life feels like a ticking time bomb, and you are desperately searching for an effective means to diffuse it. But your coping skills aren’t working well enough, or maybe they weren’t that healthy in the first place. How are you supposed to get comfortable with the challenges you are experiencing, let alone feel you are responding in a healthy way, when everything around you – maybe even your person – can be so unpredictable?

The start of therapy is often a painful or stressful time. I will work with you to improve your current life and increase your future resilience. I believe the foundation of this work is often the experience of being truly heard. There are stories behind the things we do and the feelings we have. We usually know parts of these stories, but therapy helps us to know more. As we come to know more, we gain more control, and it becomes easier to meet life’s challenges. Additionally, we become better at seeing people and situations for what they really are, which helps us to avoid ruts at work and in our relationships.
