I love working with couples as well as individuals interested in hike or nature-based therapy. From our very first session you will take home practical tools for both communication and relaxation. In moments of stress, you will have less blaming ways to express what you need to keep things from escalating. For those times when you do lose your cool, you will know more about calming yourself down before saying something you regret. I'll help you learn to be kinder to yourself, to be aware of how you talk to yourself. For starters, don't believe everything you think!

Are you less than satisfied with who you've become and the life you're living? Many of us struggle with acceptance and love for our bodies and are unsure how to make peace with ourselves and plot a positive path forward. I believe therapy is a collaboration where I meet you wherever you are and we become partners on the path toward your best self. Because mental and emotional distress happens in relationship, we begin with the most important relationship you will ever have – the one with yourself. The way in which we treat ourselves directly correlates with how we show up in the world and connect with others.

"I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become." ~ Carl Jung. Do you feel overwhelmed, have pain, grief, anxiety, depression, or unseen shadows that prevent you from healing or from choosing better decisions, relationships, and allowing yourself to matter in your own life? My experience and education can help people hungering for more purpose, fulfillment, and nurturing relationships instead of dissonance, exhaustion, and sacrifice, those who know what you were aiming for, but discovered you’re at the top of the wrong ladder. If you feel like you’re different or unseen, then I may be the psychotherapist you’ve sought.

The last year has been hard on almost all of us. Has trauma, loss or grief made it difficult to live the life you really want? How do you imagine your life changing or being more satisfying? My approach is respectful, encouraging and focused on growth. I'm trained in what are called "power therapies." EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and BSP (Brainspotting) have the potential to heal deeply, from within the brain and body, and create understanding and relief.

I believe that in order for an individual to truly make progress in therapy, they must have a safe and comfortable space to do so. Finding a therapist who is a good match is as important as the work you do in session. I offer a clean and comfortable environment as well as a non-judgmental listening ear. I subscribe to the idea that alongside empathy and understanding, humor has an appropriate place in healing. I believe that the journey of therapy is to be done as a team. As a therapist, it is my main goal to support and encourage my clients as well as ask thought provoking and insightful questions.

As I enter tonight's journal entry I sit here thinking I'm not sure what happened to me. I don't feel the same anymore, not towards my spouse, not towards myself. I'm overwhelmed by the stressors of life, and they seemed to have taken over my spirit, energy and my relationships. I feel anxious, depressed, disconnected and most of all confused. I want to feel good again, I want the love of my life to see me again, I want to have confidence in myself, my marriage and most of all I want to live again. Many of us feel this way but don't express it to anyone. We begin to question is it even possible possible for any of this to change?
