Between your growing list of responsibilities at work, plus taking the kids where they need to be and keeping your house running, it's like you constantly have 20 spinning plates in the air. You're afraid that they might come crashing down on you at any minute, and you're desperate for relief. You're not sleeping well, you're stressed out, and you can't shake this sense of impending doom.

I am a devoted to helping you find relief from anxiety, anger, depression, shame, or whatever it is that leaves you feeling stuck. This relief can come by being in a relationship where all of you is welcomed and valued, even the parts of you that feel broken, extreme, or judged by yourself or others. Together, we'll get to know what's causing you these symptoms, help change your relationship to these symptoms, and work towards healing whatever wound is at the root. In this process you may find that "you" becomes more clear, and experience a greater freedom to show up in the ways you'd like at work, home, and in your relationships.

It feels like you’re always arguing and can’t seem to agree on even the simplest things. Loneliness permeates the home even when you’re sitting right next to each other. The person you fell in love with is beginning to feel a lot more like a roommate. Just getting through a dinner together feels like a chore. You miss the days when you were excited to be in each other’s presence, when you would hold hands and snuggle. The spark has faded, and the passion has vanished. Over the years you’ve hurt each other and you’re still struggling to find forgiveness. Reconnecting with your partner seems impossible, like there’s no way out.
