Our mental health is so vital, but we often put it on the back burner to take care of "more important things". I am so glad you're here, which tells me that you are starting to consider prioritizing your mental health and emotional wellbeing. Sometimes, we try to "keep it all together" in order to focus on other things in our life, such as work, school, family, and relationships, without really realizing that our symptoms bleed into every single area of our life. When that happens, it can feel like our sadness, anxiety, anger, flashbacks, or whatever else, is affecting our ability to function normally and live a fulfilling life.

It’s time to make a change. Every day, you serve other people, whether in your work life or home life. Helping people heal and grow is hugely important for you, but now it’s time to refocus on your own healing and growth too. You’ve been feeling unfulfilled, stressed out, and run down. You're losing sight of the deeper purpose for your life; a spiritual or creative drive that's going unfulfilled. Compassion fatigue is leaving you too drained to thrive. When you're joyful and healthy, you can serve the world more effectively. Self-care and emotional resilience are essential to good health.

If you are reading this, you may be going through a particularly rough patch. Or, you could be ready to face something that's been difficult for too long. How would it be to have a companion on the road--someone who knows short cuts, has walked similar terrain, and will stick with you when you lose your way and your temper? An individual therapist can serve as a guide to your own best self. I work primarily with adolescents and adults who have depression, anxiety disorders, ADHD, trauma, difficulty with emotional regulation, LGBTQ concerns, or (most often) some combination.
