"Loving ourselves through the process of owning our story is the bravest thing we'll ever do." ~Brene Brown~ Have you found life hasn't turned out the way you expected? Sometimes that can be a wonderful thing, and other times that reality can be frustrating to accept or work through. I believe those frustrations, when left unaddressed, can and often do lead to feelings of depression and/or anxiety, and can also put a strain on relationships. I believe therapy should be a safe space to give voice to those frustrations and an opportunity for healing.

Therapy is a healthy resource. Everyone needs an objective, non-judgmental person to talk with in a confidential and warm environment. Sometimes you feel something is not quite right, but you can't put your finger on it. Other times, you know exactly what it is. Either way, telling your story can help figure things out by identifying your patterns of thought, behavior and emotions. Are any of them getting in the way? Together we discover the obstacles to achieving a stronger sense of well-being. Most importantly, we figure out how you can remove obstacles to leading a happier, more authentic life.

During my years as a therapist, I've treated many clients who coped successfully with life's endless challenges until something happened that turned their lives upside down. Death, relationship conflicts, young adulthood struggles and other upsetting experiences cause feelings of anxiety, depression, confusion or loneliness. To strengthen people who come to me, I provide a safe, nonjudgmental relationship that frees them to express their feelings and gain a sense of direction. They know that I'll listen carefully, take them seriously and help them regain emotional stability and peace. I provide therapy online if it's helpful.
