About

Do you feel overwhelmed by emotions? Many of us do. We try to push them away until one day that no longer works, and then we panic. Maybe you struggle with worry, a fierce inner critic, trauma, or feeling sad or numb. Perhaps a difficult break-up or loss feels unbearable. Maybe you'd like more clarity about your feelings and how to express your emotions. If this sounds like you, I'd like to help. As painful as these times can be, there is potential for deep personal growth. I can help you find some relief from these struggles, and in the process come away with greater self-awareness, confidence and self-compassion.
What if emotions are actually messengers and signals? What important information are we missing when we push them away? Using mindfulness based approaches (EMDR, Hakomi, IFS) we can get to the roots of your distress and discover patterns of thought, feelings and behavior that may be outside your everyday awareness. This is the place where change happens!
Feelings of anxiety, depression, and relationship struggles are incredibly common. In fact, I consider them part of the human experience. Yet, most of us grow up not learning much about healthy ways to deal with emotions or relationships. That is why therapy can be such a gift! I provide free consultations, let's talk to see how I can support you.
