I believe that our lives are built on relationships. Be it between parent and child, partner and partner, supervisor and employee, or peer and peer, relationships can be healing and rewarding, but they can also be painful and difficult. We all know the stress and heartache that can come from a relationship in distress and we all know that desperate, painful feeling of wanting relief. Helping people find their way through these difficulties and back to each other is one of the most rewarding and exciting things I do. I specialize in helping families connect and thrive.

Are you feeling anxious, irritable, or foggy more and more these days? Do you resent your partner or snap at them over little things? The changes that have come with growing a family feel overwhelming, but it’s hard to admit that you aren’t doing ok. Everyone says this is the best time of your life, but you barely recognize yourself. Your body and mind are exhausted, and you feel like you don’t know where to begin. You want to regain balance, focus, and a sense of who you are now beyond being a parent or trying to become a parent. Let me help you find your way back to you.

We have all envisioned some version of our ideal selves. Often times past hurts or traumas can affect our lives so that we act out from a place of brokenness rather than healing and compassion. The dissonance our present selves and who we aspire to be can lead to frustration, depression, anxiety, and despair. If you are feeling stagnant and looking for ways to shift out of unhealthy self-defeating patterns, you have come to the right place.

Addressing difficulties in relationships, transitions, change and trauma as well as depression, anxiety, stress and chronic/acute illness are my areas of expertise. Change is difficult and transitions can be challenging. Sometimes life can feel overwhelming or out of control, and asking for help can be really difficult, even scary. It's common to feel overwhelmed, confused, or lost in an emotional place that feels endless with no escape. I am here to provide a safe space where we can work together to help you find a way out and build a path forward toward healing, balance, happiness and meaning.

As humans, we are frequently challenged with the need to adjust-- to unforeseen changes and transitions, to loss, to injury and illness, or to the pressures of everyday life. And sometimes adjustment is needed in relation to an event or process of our own choosing (divorce, elective surgery, spiritual quest). For individuals who wish to deepen their understanding of themselves and their circumstances, or for those struggling with specific challenges, my commitment is to come alongside and help you cope, gain insight, problem-solve, heal, and adjust such that life can be lived as fully and genuinely as possible.

Life has become a myriad of stress and strain for many people and my goal is to help clients gain a sense of health and well-being. In individual therapy I utilize a psychodynamic approach in which work with clients unfold as a mutual, collaborative process occurring in an atmosphere of safety and respect. I view a clients' problem(s) in a framework that places an emphasis on how their past emotional and interpersonal experiences are affecting the way they are today. I believe that a client's unconscious can influence their inner experience (e.g., thoughts and feelings).
