Therapy can lead to better relationships and more ease in our lives. I work with individuals and couples to find more clarity and balance in their lives. Sometimes we avoid parts of our life or ourselves that are painful. Together we will get to know these hurt parts and how they show up, whether it is through fears and worries, the critical voice you hear inside, or a feeling of being stuck, lost, alone or helpless.

When approached with integrity, compassion, curiosity and care, psychotherapy can be profoundly transformative and healing. It can help you traverse uncertainty, discover what nourishes and sustains you, and deepen your experience of your world. Though at times elusive, the answers you seek are already within you, be it personally, professionally, or spiritually. I am deeply dedicated to helping you navigate the corridor between where you are and where you long to be. Together we will work to understand what truly matters to you so that you can live a richer, happier, more satisfying life.

Stepping into therapy with someone is an inherently risky process. You are courageously opening up to someone that you don't really know, in hopes of changing, of finding something new, of building a relationship that can create positive change. I respect those who take the leap and I get the importance that you find the right therapist so that you can be understood at a deep level and begin looking more closely at the places in your life that you would like to see change.

During challenging times like these, it can be hard to feel grounded and confident enough to take life by the reins and steer into the direction of wholeness. There are so many distractions that numb us out, and keep us from seeing patterns playing out in our relationships, how we are unintentionally harming ourselves, and what we are needing to live a more balanced and fulfilling life. In our work together, you will learn tools to gain insight into yourself, discover how your past informs your current life, and embody healthier, more authentic ways of showing up in the world.

Have you been feeling overwhelmed, anxious or fearful lately? Are you feeling isolated, disconnected or burnt out? These can feel like chaotic times and many people are needing increased emotional support. If you or your partner are expecting a baby or are a new parent, life can feel especially unmanageable. You may be worried about staying safe and healthy, attending doctor appointments alone or not receiving as much social support after baby has arrived. Therapy can be a safe, non-judgemental space to reflect and process these complex emotions.

Do you worry that you're too sensitive? You may be thinking: "I need to toughen up, I wish I could turn my feelings down a notch, Why can't I just get over it?, Why does it seem like I struggle more than others?, I feel so overwhelmed, or there must be something wrong with me." If you feel any of these ways, I want you to know that you're not alone, and you're not broken. In therapy, you’ll discover the value and uniqueness of being you. Instead of seeing your sensitivity as a weakness, it will become your strength. You can finally stop fighting against yourself and rest, knowing you are welcome in the world, just as you are.

I believe Psychotherapy can be a “point in the right direction” to bring change, healing, and a new sense of hope into your life. This is a place you can talk about anything, where you can explore fears, frustrations, hopes and all the parts of yourself. You don't have to be in crisis for therapy, often it's good to have someone to talk through things. I am a deep and attentive listener, as well as interactive. One of my goals is to give you my "toolbox" so you can manage life outside the office. I am also sex positive, open to people of all ethnicities, race and gender.

Am I doing it right? I feel like I should be happier. That’s why I studied so hard, got that degree, put in those extra hours at the office. But I’m not. Most days, I feel like an imposter. Like if someone really paid attention, I’d be in trouble. Everyone around me seems to just get it more than I do. Even maintaining the minimum is stressing me out. Maybe I didn’t pick the right career. But what would my parents say if I told them that? Or my friends? How can I ever keep up? You’re not the only one that feels that way.
