I believe that our lives are built on relationships. Be it between parent and child, partner and partner, supervisor and employee, or peer and peer, relationships can be healing and rewarding, but they can also be painful and difficult. We all know the stress and heartache that can come from a relationship in distress and we all know that desperate, painful feeling of wanting relief. Helping people find their way through these difficulties and back to each other is one of the most rewarding and exciting things I do. I specialize in helping families connect and thrive.

Maybe you are coping with a stressful pregnancy? Or grappling with the loss of one? Are you postpartum, feeling unsure, worried, irritable, sad, unable to sleep even when the baby sleeps? Or perhaps, you are further along the parenting continuum, supporting your child through the various developmental stages - toddlerhood, adolescence and beyond. Is that meltdown normal? How do I help my daughter with difficult friendships? Is my teen's behavior typical? How do I tackle their constant internet use? Or maybe you simply want to empower yourself or your child with healthy emotional tools now to prevent potential issues later.

Being a human is challenging. Anxiety can get in the way of enjoying life, relationships, and feeling present. Many people feel anxious, stuck, worried, or unsure of how to move forward in their lives or relationships. They often think they are alone. Anxiety, sadness, guilt, loneliness, confusion, or general feelings of hopelessness and overall stress may be bothering you, and although our lives may look successful on the outside, they often don't feel so good on the inside. Maybe you don't react the way you wish you would or you find yourself worrying about the future or the past.

Past stories can create painful realities that can affect the present life. It can be extremely easy to beat ourselves up for things we do/did to survive pain. Now... imagine what it would look like to transform that old story into an empowering new beginning? A quote that truly resonates with my work is from Rumi: “The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” Whether you're seeking therapy or life coaching to resolve trauma or looking to process challenges that arise throughout your day to day life, I can help find understanding through empowerment and insight so you can live the life you are determined to live.

As humans, we are frequently challenged with the need to adjust-- to unforeseen changes and transitions, to loss, to injury and illness, or to the pressures of everyday life. And sometimes adjustment is needed in relation to an event or process of our own choosing (divorce, elective surgery, spiritual quest). For individuals who wish to deepen their understanding of themselves and their circumstances, or for those struggling with specific challenges, my commitment is to come alongside and help you cope, gain insight, problem-solve, heal, and adjust such that life can be lived as fully and genuinely as possible.

The human spirit has an amazing capacity for resilience, but sometimes it's too hard to access it on your own. When we encounter challenges and problems in relationships, in our workplaces, in our families, we can feel overwhelmed, hopeless, & stuck. It's not uncommon to feel depressed or anxious, or seek out unhealthy ways to function that mask the hurt. It's in situations like these that it takes great strength to reach out and ask for help--to seek someone to come alongside and enter into your experience; help shoulder the burden, and rediscover and connect with that resiliency.
