Beginning therapy can feel daunting. I work to provide a safe and secure place for you to feel comfortable and begin to gently explore what's keeping you stuck or feeling hopeless. I believe that empathy, acceptance and authenticity are the the keys to building a trusting therapist-client relationship. Together we will explore patterns that are no longer working for you, or preventing you from personal growth and healing. I am passionate about embarking on your personal journey of self awareness. I draw on a variety of orientations including humanistic and psychodynamic theories and practice in order to meet each client's needs.

I believe we all need help sometimes. Life is a journey, a journey that can be painful to navigate. It is my honor to walk beside you. It makes a difference to have someone that can help hold the burden until you find your own strength. It is my privilege to hold space as you work through trauma, pain, and grief. Transformation is a process, and to have support integrating the pain into the depths of your soul, is a gift of connection. Soul to soul. If you are searching for an advocate and a healer, it is not a coincidence you found me.

How do I know if my sexual behavior is out of control? For many men this question is very subjective and they unfortunately wait for a spouse, loved one or their employer to discover their hidden sexual life before considering help. At The Harvey Institute we believe the most important person to evaluate his personal conflict with regulating sexual behavior is the man experiencing the dilemma. We help men contemplate "What is your conflict with your sexual behavior?" and "What is your vision for your sexual health?" We strive to provide a safe, sexually informed and confidential space for sexual health conversations.

As we journey through life, we collect experiences. Some of the experiences we collect are negative and can affect how we travel on our journey to our goals. If you’ve ever found yourself: worrying, struggling with sadness, indecisive and unable to complete goals, finding it difficult to find purpose, feeling sadness that won’t ease up, having bodily issues and trouble sleeping, it would not be uncommon to need extra support to help you to climb over the hurdles of life and become the person you’ve always envisioned.

Why therapy? Why now? Many of the talents and qualities that make someone successful in one area of life can pose difficulties in others. Unique life circumstances are common in my practice, and I am familiar with the challenges entailed by unconventional lifestyles. Especially creative, musical, expressive, and artistic ones. Perhaps you are already aware of your need for a safe, non-judgmental environment in which to explore, repair, and heal from life’s challenges. However, you may not be certain, and that's not a problem.

**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** Like many moms, you wear numerous hats in your life, and trying to manage them all successfully can be emotionally exhausting. Too often, you tell yourself that you ARE FAILING; failing at being a mom, failing at being a partner, failing at being a friend, failing at being an employee or student, etc etc...leaving you feeling helpless, hopeless, anxious, and depressed. One voice tells you that you CAN do this while the louder voice tells you that you CAN'T, so you isolate in the silence of shame and put on a brave face hoping to make it through the day. You want to feel better, but you're unsure how.

We encounter many transitions in our lives. Transitions often come with intense life events such as moving to a new country, going through a divorce or losing a loved one. They also come at different stages of life like being an adolescent or growing older. We can feel depressed, anxious, frustrated and lost. I believe transitions provide an opportunity to re-examine ourselves and explore life’s meaning. Together we address issues of identity, interpersonal relationships, grief & loss, loneliness, immigration, and aging.
