Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions? Do I need therapy? Are my problems and experiences important enough for therapy? What is the therapist going to think about me? Initiating therapy can be a difficult process. Understanding this, I strive to make everyone feel safe and comfortable in my office setting. I have worked hard to ensure that individuals feel at ease when exploring their past and present experiences.

Your life is amazing in so many areas, yet you can’t seem to get your anxiety to step aside and let you live your life to the fullest. You worry, your mind races with directionless thoughts, you’re distracted, and you’re too often irritable. Those awkward moments replay in your head and endless fears play and replay in your head. Then this presents challenges for you and your relationships. Maybe the anxiety is even coming from your relationships. Either way, let me help you come up for air. I know there is a lot on your plate, and these constant struggles with your thoughts, feelings, and moods are the last thing you need.

Provider focused on long-term treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder, Complex PTSD, and PTSD. "You're not stuck. You're just committed to certain patterns of behavior because they helped you in the past. Now those behaviors have become more harmful than helpful. The reason you can't move forward is because you keep applying an old formula to a new level in your life." - Emily Maroutian. Are you stuck in a pattern? Change can be hard, but it starts with empathy for the reasons the patterns developed in the first place.

Something feels off. Sometimes it’s obvious what is affecting you, but often you’re less certain. Perhaps you have some ideas about what’s wrong, but you aren’t sure how to feel better. Maybe you are experiencing relationship issues, or just feel like you are alone even when you know you have people who care about you. It may even be possible that you are uncertain there is anything wrong at all because you’ve always felt this way - but is it really this hard for everyone? There are many people just like you that could be living happier and healthier lives - they just don’t know how to get there.
