It can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy and takes courage to make that first contact. OFFERING VIDEO SESSIONS BECAUSE OF COVID 19. As your therapist I will engage you in becoming comfortable exploring your inner self and learning where do you get stuck and what increases your satisfaction in life. Using a compassionate and collaborative approach, we will develop a plan that addresses your issues. You will learn to look in the mirror and not the magnifying glass to improve both your self image and relationships with others. You will also learn how to set boundaries; this reduces anger and increases self esteem.

Humans have a biological need to feel safe and worthy of love. In a world that repeatedly invalidates sensitivity and vulnerability, it’s not surprising that many of us struggle to feel happy, attain goals and find fulfilling romantic relationships. Some of us turn to substances, while others over function. If we are parents, we may find that we accidently repeat hurtful dynamics with our own children. Suddenly, or not so suddenly, we find ourselves struggling with guilt, shame and hopelessness. I am here to provide a warm and non-judgmental space, so that we may explore the strength and resilience you already posess.

Are you are distressed with the uncertainty & loss from Covid-19? Has it added to an already challenged relationship(s)? Finding the right-fit therapist to help you reconnect to those you love can be a relief. Maybe there is too much togetherness at home right now. Or you're getting caught up in your cycle of disconnection. One of you wants to talk and the other wants space. Or worse, you’re in the same room on your own screens, feeling alone. Perhaps this added stress has intensified your already existing problems around sex, finances, extended family, betrayals, or grief. You know this is not how you want your relationship to be.
