Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it always feels out of reach. You feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries and your relationships are suffering because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like it's never good enough. You can’t stop thinking about the past even though you try. You wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start feeling excited about life!

Life is difficult, transitions can be hard. Things can go along well and then you can find yourself uncertain about past, present and future. Uncertainty can bring about further emotional challenges, feelings of sadness, confusion, worry and possibly fear. Healing can be discovered within the self and having someone come along side providing safety and guidance can help the process. Experiences in life have a tendency to shape who we become, our thoughts and our beliefs. Some experiences unknowingly can close avenues of growth and potential. I believe in the importance of knowing, understanding and accepting self.

Few people relish change. Sometimes life offers challenges and opportunities. Sometimes it forces change and transitions upon us. It can happen at every stage of life. However, we always have choices about how we face it and how we respond. We can go with it, flow with it and grow with it. It requires a lot of courage. It also helps to approach change with an open mind and an open heart. My approach to psychotherapy is one that is non-judgmental, compassionate, empathic, understanding, safe and supportive.

And, our children are faced with a great deal of stress and outside influence such as social media, high education standards, and reduced opportunity for success after graduation.

Therapy can be transformational and life altering. Therapy begins by building a safe and trusting relationship with the client and then addressing layers of behaviors, beliefs and perspectives that no longer serve their life. If you want a life worth living and need guidance to create the life you want, I can help. With over 10 years of experience, my greatest joy is to watch a client recognize their worth, embrace who they are, believe in their strength and recognize that life has more to offer than they could ever conceive.

I practice Integrative Psychotherapy, which incorporates all aspects of the person in the change process. Many people who seek counseling do so as a result of experiencing a problem that they cannot resolve on their own. This creates difficulties in moods, behaviors, and relationships as that problem begins to drain their energy and attention. My goal is to assist you in re-connecting with a sense of balance, or integration, in your life.

Are you struggling with things that have happened to you or that you’ve done? That struggle is a normal reaction to abnormal events that may have left you feeling unlike yourself. It becomes consuming, costing you time with loved ones and friends, money, sense of peace, sleep, pleasure, joy, or your health and you want nothing more than to be yourself again; maybe even find yourself for the first time ever.

You want more out of life. Maybe you want to be more happy or less anxious or maybe you want a better quality of life or to grow in a new direction. It can be confusing because your life is not miserable but it just isn't what you hoped for. You gave and you continue to give but you're just not feeling the joy. Its starting to get you down and you find yourself escaping to Facebook and Instagram or getting lost in another Netflix series because you're bored or maybe it helps you mange the anxiety that pushes into your throat when you actually sit and think about where you are, how you got here and where you are going (or not going).

I focus on Cognitive Therapy as the foundation of how we think, feel and act. Sometimes, we have to change our behavior and to learn to practice healthy skills. I have done a lot of trauma work and understand the connection between early trauma and behaviors the can be troubling in adult life.

I believe that all humans are innately driven to seek balance and congruence, and that when this drive is disrupted, whether it be due to emotional difficulties, relational stressors, or other life changes, we begin to suffer. It is my privilege to accompany my clients in their process of establishing balance and integration, ultimately achieving a sense of wholeness and security. I recognize that sometimes talk therapy isn't enough so I use a variety of additional therapies, including EMDR, which facilitate change by reprocessing emotionally-charged memories or experiences that often show up as physical sensations in the body.
