With Imago our issues and conflicts aren't the problem, they're the solution: they're signposts pointing the way toward healing the true, underlying causes. Imago teaches you how to safely explore these deeper emotional undercurrents together, so that your disagreements can actually become opportunities for greater intimacy, as you learn about each other.

Life can be difficult. Often, we are faced with issues and circumstances that can be challenging at best, and most of us were not taught the skills to help us successfully navigate through our experiences. We feel the pressure to please others while forgoing our own needs & feelings. We all want to feel more joy in our lives, but we don't always know how to achieve it.

What is holding you back from living your most fulfilling life? Fears, depression, anxiety, panic, hopelessness, trauma, childhood wounds still lingering? I am here to lead you on a journey of self discovery and healing. I view therapy as a collaboration and as a therapist I am an active participant and guide. While I have worked with many different types of clients and mental struggles, I sub-specialize in mind body/ neural circuit disorders such as chronic pain, IBS, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and female chronic pain syndromes. I am fascinated in neuroplasticity, how our brains can change, and how we can heal from these syndromes!

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."- Kierkegaard.

Do you wish your life was more fulfilling, better or different than it is but struggle to make a change? I understand how scary and challenging it can be to take that first step. However, I also believe that achieving an adequate, satisfying, and productive life with the right support is possible. Together we can explore the underlying reasons that are holding you back and identify new ways of coping.

Perhaps, the essence of all your mental and emotional pain lies in your inability to love yourself. Thus, it's important to uncover all barriers within yourself that prevent you from achieving this. I highly value creating a safe space for improving self-worth. There are no easy answers, only profound opportunities to explore the unresolved questions. I'm interested in understanding what continues to hold you back in life and invested in guiding you towards greater balance, meaning, creativity, and authenticity.

Are you looking to overcome a substance use disorder or any kind of addictive behavior (e.g. food addiction). Do you feel like you have tried so many times to be sober but just can't understand why you keep relapsing? My approach to treating these disorders is holistic but also can work with the 12 step model. I look at what may be driving this behavior the "underlying core issues" rather than focusing on symptoms alone. I do not see clients who are actively using drugs or alcohol. I am able to counsel family members of addicts.
