Are you feeling stuck? Do you feel anxious, depressed, or trapped in the chaos of negative thoughts, but don't know how to change? Are you unfulfilled in your relationships? These struggles may keep you awake at night, searching for a way to feel more overall peace and well being. Traumatic experiences make it difficult to break through pain and hopelessness, and may be leading you to self-destructive patterns. Your pain and emotional suffering is bearable when you share it.

Healing occurs when we get below the surface of the issue and connect back to our truth and authenticity. I am particularly good at helping you get to the root of your problems and dig deep. I help you identify the connection between your past experiences and how they have influenced who you are today and the actions you take in your life. Are you feeling lost or disconnected? Fearful of putting yourself out there, or questioning your path? Maybe you are navigating pivotal life and relationship changes and struggling with the grief and uncertainty of it all.

If only you could just "fix it" or think "positively" you won't ever have to feel this way again. Yet, this battle never seems to win in your favor. The constant "should-ing" has left you feeling insecure, anxious, and stuck. Your self-doubt and inner critic are roaring and it's gotten difficult to even know what you want or need. I provide a safe and warm environment to slow down your busy mind and ease your distress to support you on the journey of tuning into your needs, finding comfort and confidence in your inner voice, and creating changes that will allow you to align your actions with your values.

You may be seeking therapy for many reasons, and it can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy. As your therapist, I will engage you in becoming comfortable with exploring your inner self. My work with you is aimed at increasing your awareness of processes that lead to suffering and ultimately increasing your enjoyment and satisfaction in life. We will explore what is working for you and where you get stuck, how you relate to others and yourself, and your coping mechanisms, which all affect how you're feeling on a daily basis. Learning to understand and flow with your emotions will probably be a focus in our work together.

I have had many years of gratifying experience in deeply engaging with the people I work with, and training and supervising doctoral students and therapists (many on this site have been my students!). Discovering what has been causing personal distress, worry, loneliness, or disappointment is what transforms life. These underlying stresses can cause problems with relationship, career, mood, or just general feelings of dissatisfaction. The personal growth that blooms in the therapy opens doors inside and out, and creates the rich opportunities and experiences we all want in life.

Would you like to improve your relationships with your significant other, family, children or colleagues? Are you exhausted trying to maintain daily activities? Struggling with anxiety, depression, sleep problems, feeling irritable or unhappy? Many of us didn't get the attention, empathy and support we needed, which often results in emotional wounds we carry as adults. Perhaps seeking therapy is not your first choice in resolving the problem(s), seems to be an extravagant expense or is culturally incongruent. However, since we are often wounded in our primary family relationships, it is through relationships that we heal.
