Life is more satisfying when we are able to be ourselves, and that is easier to do when we receive help from others. My goal is to help you tackle the challenges of your life, past or present, in a way that is empowering and healing. Our work together would be exploratory (figuring out causes and effects) and action-based (building skills and new approaches). I do this in collaboration with clients, honoring the expertise you have when it comes to yourself, even if it can get lost at times. Therapy can be challenging, but I assure you, there will also be room for humor and levity.

Why do therapy? Why embark on a relationship with someone you don't know, to talk about difficulties or challenges in your life? Sometimes, when we tell family or friends how we are feeling, they react personally or try to explain away our experiences rather than make room for them. I believe that a relationship with a therapist is one in which significant change can take place. The neutral environment of therapy provides space to explore our experiences without worrying about angering, hurting, or upsetting someone else.

Finding the strength and courage to live in one's truth and authenticity serves as the platform for my style of therapy, where I work with my clients to identify and unpack how the sociocultural and sociopolitical tenets of modern society may inhibit you from living your best life. From exploring the history of multi-generational trauma, the impact of COVID-19 social isolation on your mental health and relationships, and/or unpacking internalized stigma surrounding an aspect of your identity. Together, our work would focus on your goals and vision, and identify the necessary coping skills for connecting to your life's radiance.

Despite all that you have been through and achieved, you get the feeling that something is missing in your life. A recent transition, relationship or career challenge may be making it clear that some things are not working. You may also notice that you end up playing a familiar role in your relationships and this creates a "stuck" feeling. At times you feel overwhelmed with worry, pressure or confusion and may be resorting to addictive patterns or substances in order to cope. You don't want to feel "lacking," anxious or stressed out. You want to feel better and become a fuller, more centered version of yourself.

To paraphrase Alice Miller: the opposite of depression isn't happiness; it's vitality. My clients are people who want to feel more in control, more at peace, more effective, more connected, more present, more focused, more decisive, more flexible… more alive. They seek relief from patterns -- sometimes chronic and severe, sometimes only subtly nagging -- of painful feelings, negative thoughts and self-sabotaging behaviors that stem from their experience of growing up in particular worlds and particular histories that were traumatic or difficult or confusing.
