You often feel like you're shouting into the wind, and no one is listening. What does it take to have your inner voice be heard and respected? It helps to get out of the echo chamber of our own heads and find someone to bounce ideas off of. This first step is truly the hardest, but it pays off quickly! Reaching out for help can be scary, and procrastination so easy to justify - but taking that first step, and resolving to change your life, starts paying off right away. When you're clear about what you're thinking and feeling - and why - it's much easier to know what to do next. Therapy can help you do that, and you won't feel alone.

Navigating life’s difficulties can be challenging, especially during this time of physical and emotional isolation. I honor all as unique individuals and value your life experiences. Prior to counseling, my background was in music where I maintained a professional position in the arts for over 20 years. I can relate to the many challenges artists face on a deeper level and I understand the pain and frustration that comes with being creative and sensitive. I value the importance of cultivating a strong therapeutic relationship so we can collaborate in finding the tools within yourself to move towards positive growth and change.

Together, we work to create a calm, safe, non-judgmental atmosphere that allows you the freedom to express yourself. It's not always easy to speak about problems or painful pasts or even, at times, current situations. However, careful, empathetic listening and gentle inquiry make it possible to begin to explore behaviors and feelings and eventually to gain insights that facilitate changes.

While trusting and connecting with those close to us is something that tends to bring joy, vibrancy, and sense of belonging, the complexity inherent in important and intimate relationships can often leave us feeling thrown off course, irritated and unsure. In trying our best to "get back" what was once there - unspoken compromises become the nature of discourse that all too often leave us feeling stuck, misunderstood, and frustrated. As resentment builds, trust dwindles. As the crater of distance fills with frustration, the hope of reconnecting turns to blame.
