It pushes us to see things in new ways, to explore ideas and feelings and, to hopefully feel better and more connected to ourselves and our lives. I approach therapy from a holistic and integrative perspective--I believe well-being is influenced and impacted by many factors including physical health, genetics, personality and life experiences.

"One of the early questions I ask a new client is, "where are you hoping this relationship will take you?". For some, the answer to this question is clear. They imagine a life where their anxiety or depressive symptoms no longer get in the way of attending school or work, spending time with friends and enjoying their days. Others hope for a time when they feel physically and emotionally well enough to enjoy each day. Many people struggle with a vision for their future. Often, the path behind us is full of wrong turns or the path ahead feels full of obstacles. Regardless of where you are, I will join with you and support your journey."

"There are times in our lives when it becomes essential for us to seek greater self-awareness and a fuller sense of meaning and purpose. Perhaps you're experiencing the end of a relationship, a major life transition, an intense period of stuckness, or frequent 3am panic that leaves you in a tailspin. Or, you might just be feeling like nothing is terribly wrong, but still not quite right. I offer support and guidance for individuals in the midst of these kinds of muddy waters who are looking for insight into their past experiences and present choices in order to craft a future that feels authentic and meaningful."

Right now, you may have more questions than answers, but one thing you know for sure is that you’d do anything to get your life back.
