Do you ever have the feeling that if you could talk to someone you would feel less anxious, worried or depressed about a situation or issue? Do you ever feel that perhaps, if someone would listen to your concerns and "get it", you might be able to make "sense out of nonsense"? My clients are the drivers, directors and deciders of their talk sessions. You bring your areas of concern to the table and in a safe and trusting setting we join hands in a collaborative effort to make "sense out of nonsense". Pieces of the puzzle start to fit.

My goal is to help individuals and families uncover their true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't always change difficult situations, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges. Seeing a situation in a new way, becoming aware of what we can and cannot control, or learning coping skills for managing our circumstances can significantly improve our daily lives.

People often turn to psychotherapy when our usual ways of coping with the world become inadequate or counterproductive. We may feel overwhelmed by events, or experience a painful awareness that our lives are not what we want them to be. Sometimes life transitions, such as the loss of a loved one, birth of a child, divorce, job change, or retirement challenge our sense of self, our ties to others, and our understanding of what's important to us. We experience symptoms of anxiety and depression.

I offer my clients a space to explore feelings using a creative and holistic approach. I use art, mindfulness, and meditation to help clients gain a deeper awareness into themselves and to facilitate a process of growth to help individuals become better versions of themselves. I work together with each client to set goals and set each individual up for success. As art can be sometimes intimidating I remind my clients that the art is there as their guide to help them go deeper and connect to themselves. There is no art experience needed and never judgment in the artwork.

I believe we all have an innate orientation toward health, growth, and the expression of our full potential. We may experience, however, blocks in the form of thinking, feeling, and/or bodily symptoms that cause significant distress, interfering with our ability to function optimally and to access our resources and our more complete selves. This may manifest itself in the form of overwhelming feelings such as depression, anxiety, and/or rage; disordered eating and body image; flashbacks and/or other symptoms of unprocessed traumatic experiences; or other signs that we have lost touch with the fullness of who we are.

I have always maintained the belief that individuals who seek clinical support are the healthy ones- they recognize that something is wrong and want to make a change. Becoming aware is the first step to moving forward. However, awareness without action can create, frustration, depression, anxiety and an overwhelming sense of hopelessness. It is my job to navigate your complicated and conflicted emotions/behaviors to bring you to a place where you can make healthy choices and decisions. My goal is to teach you strategies that will break the cycle to create a new way of being - to live in the present and plan for the future.
