At one time or another, we might feel overwhelmed, stuck, unsatisfied with our lives and experience a prolonged sense of hopelessness, helplessness, sadness, and anxiousness, which start to prevent us from functioning our daily tasks. We might experience some events in our personal, married or work lives that we may not know how to make sense of, with the resources that we have. We might also start to question the way we cope with our problems, for example, by drinking too much alcohol, abusing prescription medication, using illegal drugs or being aggressive, because they start to harm us or others around us.

Have you ever had the thought "Maybe I have a problem with anxiety?" One of the worst things about anxiety (aside from the feeling) is the avoidance it creates in a person's life. From mildly interfering with enjoyment to outright avoiding things altogether, anxiety can be paralyzing. Whether it's related to social situations, more generalized, panic attacks, phobia, agoraphobia, or related disorders such as OCD. These are my first and foremost areas of expertise. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is seeing and comparing the progress a person makes along the way.

Great therapy is a sacred, unique, and mutually respectful relationship. My approach is holistic in nature, seeking to balance the mind, body and spirit. There is no one approach for everyone, so I like to utilize many forms of therapy with clients, allowing a person-centered, humanistic, and eclectic approach. I also incorporate aspects of spirituality if desired, and am open to all beliefs. I mainly work with adults but am also interested in working with teens. My therapy is intuitive and empathic, which invites individuality to shine.
