There is a saying, "In youth, we run into difficulties. In old age, difficulties run into us." Sometimes life can be really hard. Even the strongest individual may need support and guidance in dealing with unexpected circumstances, or in managing conflict and personal challenges. I believe that through safe, reassuring, and compassionate therapy, clients can work through any struggle, connect to their best authentic selves, and achieve long-term growth and personal transformation.

I believe habitual thoughts and feelings that contribute to depression, anxiety and trauma can be changed. I work to understand your experience, it's connection and contribution to where you are now, and then we focus on shifting the emotional clutter that impacts relationships with partners, with friends, and work.

My work is focused on initiating healing from the moment you walk through my door. And I recognize it takes a lot of courage to be in the room, with me as your therapist, while beginning this journey of deeper understanding of self and change. Together we will look inward at the fragmented pieces of your life, which can often be intimidating, but you won't be made to feel alone in this process. I will help you put the pieces of your life together so you can develop a stronger sense of self.

You're feeling overwhelmed. Anxiety, worry, sadness are bubbling up despite your best efforts. You can usually calm down and feel better on your own but right now, you're not sure where to turn. You may feel like no one will get you, or will know what to do to help you out. It seems like everyone around you is doing just fine, and that you are the only one feeling so scared on the inside.

Is your past getting in the way of your present? The past can come back to haunt us in so many ways. In times of change and transition, old hurts rise to the surface and challenge us with challenging thougths and feelings. These thoughts leave you feeling disconnected from others, numb to your inner sense of knowing, overwhelmed with self doubt, and unsure of what to do next. This is not the real you. You are wired for connection and trust, but need some guidance to evoke this authentic self.

In this stressful time you may be anxious, depressed, or excessively worried. You may have difficulty focusing, making you feel unmotivated and unproductive. It is possible you feel overly critical of yourself or loved ones and are having challenging relationships. The stress you're experiencing might even bring back difficult memories. I view your symptoms as unique, important expressions of your internal experience. These feelings should be respected and valued; they are clues about what is going on internally. The good news is these feelings present an opportunity, and a road map, for change.

As one of my favorite therapists wrote, "The true counselor seeks to understand people from the standpoint of appreciation...it is like inviting the traveler in from a snowy and chilly journey to sit for an hour before the fire." In a nutshell, this is my approach. I aim to provide a warm, non-judgmental presence with the curiosity and tools to help you free yourself of what you think you "should" be and accept and love who you are. Together we will learn to cultivate deep and meaningful relationships and find safety in vulnerability and connection.

Do you feel pulled in too many directions? Are there times when you feel invisible, unheard, under appreciated or overwhelmed? You deserve some restorative stillness - a moment (or an hour) to tune in, to connect and be compassionate with yourself. Often, the experience of psychotherapy - reflecting on your life's events; establishing and nurturing your true self; discovering your hidden patterns - is a radical gesture of self care that can change the course of your life.
