To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

Our first priority when we meet will be to establish trust and mutual respect in the relationship so that you begin to feel comfortable and safe. Therapy can be a rewarding experience but for many people it can feel daunting and unfamiliar at first. Our initial sessions will be focused on establishing safety. I also believe that clients are best served by helping them to understand their own experiences, strengths and by exploring both positive and traumatic experiences from their past. I take a teaching approach, often providing education about attachment and neuroscience, as clients express interest.

Our lives can be busy and filled with daily stress. Sometimes this stress leads us to believe we made the wrong choices when it comes to our relationships, career, etc. Sometimes we begin to doubt our capabilities and we compare our performance to what we see in others or in the media. During times of stress, we can develop unhealthy coping styles. We may begin to isolate, push people away, or make impulsive decisions about our lives. When individuals have additional stressors, these feelings may only become worse.

Life can be extremely difficult! It’s hard to live an optimized life when you’re constantly stressed out, anxious, or depressed. These things can affect all aspects of your life and lead to a lot of pain, but things can be better. Trust me, I understand how hard it can be. I’ve experienced depression and anxiety off-and-on for much of my life, and I work in a high stress career, so stress is the norm. I struggled with managing stress and emotions for a long time, I still do at times, but I’ve learned many ways of managing my emotions and ways to cope with life.
