Marriage & Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
Verified
I enjoy engaging with people about their lives, hearing what matters to them, what's meaningful, and encouraging them to live lives in alignment with those preferences. I partner with people to feel the permission really to be alive. I find it important to keep the work connected to what clients value; that fuels the resilience to tolerate change, hard conversations, and uncomfortable feelings (common elements of therapy). Given this, my ideal client/s is interested in feeling more self-acceptance, capacity to tolerate others, and to face unhelpful, old patterns with love in order to encourage choice and the possibility of change.

You're here for a reason. You have likely been trying your hardest to pull things together, but regardless of the constant effort, life is becoming more and more about 'getting through each day'. It seems like a constant struggle for you, and the hope that this will all just go away is fading. You may not believe it right now, but things can change - I've seen it first-hand. And if you find a therapist you truly connect with and trust, you can actually begin to break apart what's been dragging you down so you can focus on what's most important to you in your life.
