My "ideal" patient is ready to make changes s/he has long wanted and feels able to explore the barriers to emotional well-being in partnership with an experienced therapist. Building a healthy relationship in therapy is not only essential to immediate goals, but is a skill that patients take away for use with on-going problem-solving.

Are you experiencing: relationship issues, anxiety, communication & intimacy concerns, infidelity, conflict, big life changes?

Together, we will create a calm supportive environment to promote healing, and look at past betrayals (affairs, broken promises), that may be hindering your ability to trust and move forward. Working with a neutral professional trained in mediation will help!

Do you feel stuck? Many people begin psychotherapy because they feel something is "off". They are dissatisfied, but unclear about what they want; they feel that "something is missing," but they're not sure what it is. Others begin psychotherapy because they find themselves repeatedly cycling through unhealthy relationship patterns and they want to change. Additionally, we all have traumas and woundings within us, to varying degrees. Psychotherapy can help untangle these knots and move you through suffering and pain towards greater health, integration, wholeness, vitality, and well-being.

No one ever said it (life, relationships, career, school) would be easy but should it be this hard? Taking the first step to explore therapy can be challenging but it can be helpful to obtain support during times of transition or difficulty. If you are still unsure, or even if you are familiar with the therapeutic process, meeting me and getting more information about how I work just takes one session, and a consultation costs you nothing.

I believe in meeting each individual where they are at any given moment. I believe that healing comes from forgiveness in all forms, and primarily, forgiveness towards ourselves. I work with people by establishing a safe and comforting environment and offer a non-judgmental view towards examining the underlying problems, thoughts, beliefs, or stuck feelings my clients may be holding onto. As a therapist, I believe my best asset, despite any certifications or specializations I may hold, comes from my authenticity, and the appreciation, and admiration I hold for my clients every step of the way.

You try to be a good person and want more from life yet sometimes it feels like you're just going through the motions. You're functioning, but you can’t get rid of that voice—the one telling you that you’re not good enough, don’t deserve love, peace or happiness, deserved what happened to you, and that this is it in life. Your unresolved “stuff” – the anxiety, PTSD, trauma – keeps popping up at the most inconvenient time and causing you trouble. Relationships are hard. You can’t really relax. Anger eats at you. You’re tired of feeling “stuck” and uneasy in your own mind and body. What you really want is to finally feel at peace.
