We seek therapy for a variety of reasons. We feel confused, overwhelmed, or in emotional pain, sometimes over relationship or work difficulties. We may feel lost or uncertain about ourselves and our connections to others. We may also be in the midst of a life transition or change, and desire the support and space to sort out our needs and feelings. At times we seek therapy out of a need for personal growth and exploration, and a desire to have more connection with our creative process.

Welcome! People seek out psychotherapy for many reasons. Sometimes, people just need help through challenging life transitions. Others want to understand and work through deeper concerns such as persistent relationship struggles, low self-esteem or other emotional or behavioral patterns that get in the way of living a fulfilling life. Therapy is a way of exploring these and many other issues. My background is in the Arts and Anthropology as well as counseling. With a broad range of education and experience to draw from, I am equipped to establish meaningful and productive relationships with clients from all walks of life.

My therapy practice is committed to helping people live happier, healthier, more joy filled lives. Every single moment of our lives can unfold in infinitely creative ways, yet sometimes our problems seem overwhelming, or we find ourselves repeating negative patterns and we can't see the solution. Are you suffering from anxiety or depression? Are you longing for emotional connection with those nearest to you? Does your life lack a sense of direction, meaning or purpose? Are you suffering a loss, going through a job or life transition?

Are you experiencing workplace burnout or symptoms of depression and anxiety? Are you tackling a life transition or want to feel more self-empowered day to day? Are you exploring or living non-monogamy/polyamory and experiencing challenges while navigating that path? These are some of the many areas we can explore together, working toward your personal goals and a more fulfilling life. Though I practice many modalities, I am primarily a cognitive, strengths-based therapist. This means we will spend time exploring the thought patterns that influence your emotions and the unique strengths you possess that can be utilized for growth.

It happens sometimes, a sudden or not so sudden traumatic experience. Perhaps you have found yourself unsure of where else to turn, unsure of how to navigate difficult feelings of grief, anxiety, depression or other pain. Perhaps you have suffered loss by homicide, suicide, accident or you have found that you have a new medical condition. The fear is profound. You may be a victim of violent crime or assault, and you feel isolated, anxious and afraid. Simple routine tasks may just be enormously difficult. When these experiences find us, it may be hard to find meaning or hope.

Despite your best efforts, life is unknowable - you can't always predict or be prepared for what comes your way. Difficulties are inevitable. When they occur, you might need help sorting out what's going on and what to do next. The good news is, therapy helps. When you're feeling miserable, unlovable and afraid, therapy helps. When you find yourself asking the question "why me?", therapy helps. When you're ready to step into your life and take charge of it, instead of having it take charge of you, therapy helps.

I believe that people are already whole and that what we perceive as our brokenness usually comes from some kind of disconnection from ourselves and other people. Anxiety, depression, a general feeling of loneliness or feeling unloveable, all these stem from these disconnections. I value and honor each person's individual experiences and needs, acknowledging that many of us lose our sense of our uniqueness along life's path. I hope to help you learn more about your self-worth in the face of previous relationships, families, and systems that have told you you aren't good enough.
