COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders have left many feeling isolated and depressed. Family resources are stretched thin and conflicts arise as boundaries, autonomy and self-esteem all have to be renegotiated. If you have recently returned home, and you need help creating a new relationship with your parents and peers, I can help. Therapy is a workshop designed to heal your heart.

When you repeatedly find yourself in the same type of negative relationship, counseling can offer insight and support. If your relationships are causing you stress or impacting your daily life, it's a sign you may need some help. Even though relationships involve more than one person, ultimately, the only person you can change is you. With the tools and support of a trusted therapist, you can learn to set healthy boundaries and release unrealistic expectations. Oftentimes, simply gaining a new perspective on your own behavior can open the door to healthier and more satisfying relationships.

I offer a warm, non-judgmental environment where you can allow yourself to unwind and settle into a curious self-examination. Clients who choose therapy with me are often driven, passionate, and reflective, but perhaps struggling from loss or a traumatic event, a problematic relationship, an internal conflict, or too much stress. I use a combination of traditional talk psychotherapy as well as Mindfulness practices and Transpersonal Psychology to help you find purpose and meaning from uncertainty and suffering.

I trust in your inner wisdom and capabilities - yet I also understand how fear and confusion can cloud your view and block your motivation.

I am here to help you listen to the signals of your body, mind and heart that are calling for a new way of being. Often these signals come in the form of depression, anxiety, addiction, relationship troubles, loneliness, grief; I believe they are an initiation. For whatever reason, something in you feels out of sync. Your life may look good on the outside, and yet you don't enjoy it. You know all the "right" things to do, and yet they still don't seem to get to the heart of the problem. You are beginning therapy because part of you knows it would be more uncomfortable to continue "business-as-usual" than to open to change.

There's no rulebook for being an adult. Our parents didn't give us all the information or skills that we would require, as they often lacked a few themselves. Having a strong sense of self is often put in the backseat as we all do things that we think are expected of us. If you are looking for that support to explore how you ended up here, the patterns you have been carrying forward that are no longer serving you, or how to reconnect meaningfully with your partner, I have the skills to support you in this process.

Quite often people are reluctant to admit to having problems. Life is difficult when your problems are long lasting and impair your ability to function adequately in the world ie at work, school or in the home. Life is difficult when you can't seem to maintain satisfying, safe relationships w/others. You may feel that there's something wrong with you or that you just aren't ever going to be able to have the kind of life you want. And it's not for lack of trying. Perhaps you just don't know what to do. All that you have tried to do seems to have failed and left you floundering, frustrated and feeling hopeless.

Loneliness is a trickster. It can disguise itself as depression or anxiety. It can get us to sabotage our relationships and jobs, make unwise decisions, neglect our health, turn to substances or food, lose faith in the future. It can decimate our self-esteem, without which we cannot give to others. Maybe once it was loss, grief, trauma, betrayal, being at the top, illness, misfortune, being different, oppression, distance, or age. But now, maybe it's loneliness. And with the requirements of Sheltering In Place and Social Distancing during COVID19, loneliness has become a heightened risk for all of us.
