Anxiety, depression, and chronic illness . The link between stress and physical health is undeniable. And then we stress about being stressed. When you're constantly putting out fires and attending to everyone else's needs, the idea of taking care of yourself can feel like a not-so-funny joke. This level of persistent stress often finds its way into our muscles, bones, and head (i.e. headaches), leaving us not only irritated but also in physical pain. And if you already have some kind of chronic illness , then you know how badly stress impacts you (hello, flare-ups).

Welcome! The decision to find a therapist signifies courage, strength, and hope. The difficult seasons in our lives can leave us feeling overwhelmed, sad, discouraged, anxious and alone. My approach is holistic, open-minded, strength-based and collaborative. I believe in the healing power of connection, acceptance and applicable tools as I help you rediscover and optimize your authentic self. "The path to healing starts with the symbolism of the still pond. It is only when our mind, like the water, is free of turbulence that we can see the true reflection and recognize that we are not ugly ducklings but swans." Dr. Bernie S. Siegel

I am a trauma-informed provider who specializes in supporting individuals and couples navigating conflict, depression, anxiety, infertility, chronic illness , grief/loss, trauma and transition. One of the bravest things we can do is begin to understand our own stories. Clients I support often grapple with the impact of narratives about who they were, are, or "should be", leaving them questioning, "Do I matter?" or shedding pieces of their identity to generate a sense of belonging. Together, we can explore societal and relational influences on your story, while identifying your values, strengths, options for healing and growth.

Do you live with emotional trauma, physical trauma, chronic illness or chronic pain? Are you tired of feeling like your life is out of control?
 I understand how difficult it can be to live with emotional trauma, physical trauma, chronic illness and chronic pain. Life is not happening the way that you planned. You may be frozen in physical and emotional pain. The pain is not gone even when there is no evidence that it should still be there and you worry how you will show up in your own life if the pain lasts forever. Maybe you can't stop thinking about the thing that happened, no matter how hard you try.

There are many reasons why you might be seeking therapy at this very moment. It could be because of a major life event- a death, the end of a relationship, or a trauma. It could be because of a lot of small things that have accumulated over time. It could be preventative or restorative. Or it could be just because. You might be therapy-curious, or wonder if you even need therapy. Whatever has brought you to this point, I believe that the most important part of a therapeutic relationship is connection; and that therapy is for everybody.

Can you remember the last time you didn’t feel stressed? Has stress become your new normal? You feel depressed and have unrelenting anxiety. You feel stuck and wish the world would slow down. And your body is in a knot - stomach aches, muscle tension, stiff neck, tight jaw. You might be struggling from a lifelong illness, like cancer, going through a life changing event like divorce or job loss, or grieving the loss of a loved one, or don't know why you feel the way you do. You just know you don't like it and you want to feel better. Something has GOT to change.

Maybe even grieving the loss of a loved one? Maybe you are going through a stressful move or relationship problems. In this difficult time, it is important to have support around you.

Do you find yourself feeling anxious no matter what you do? Anxiety leaves us feeling stressed, fearful, and insecure. You may be fed up with constant negative thoughts, self-doubt or feeling overwhelmed with making decisions. You might not even remember a time that things didn’t feel this way. One thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to feel confident about yourself and your decisions. You’re ready to stop asking others for reassurance and begin trusting in yourself. Most of all, you’re ready to stop letting anxiety limit you from fully participating in your life.

It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs.
