Are you tired of feeling sad, hopeless, lost or just plain shitty? It's hard sometimes to find the energy to brush our teeth. Feeling like everything around you is falling apart and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You ask your self over and over, "Why can't I feel better?" causing you to feel so disconnected and searching for answers. Figuring out a way to quiet that voice that is telling you that you are not good enough and undeserving of good things.

My ideal client knows why they are in therapy. They can verbalize the need for change and are not afraid to ask for help. My ideal client comes into each session ready to do the work, yet prepared for how tough it may be. My ideal client is vulnerable, yet strong; and knowledgeable, yet willing to listen. I strive to encourage you to be your best self, by gently challenging you, helping you get unstuck, and creating room for us to pinpoint your growth areas. I am excited for you to be better.

Asking for help is not always easy. Looking and actually going to see a therapist is not any easier. Acknowledging that help is needed is a huge step in your recovery and seeing your therapist another. It takes a lot of bravery to do that and I applaud you for it. My goal as your therapist is to provide you with the safe space where you will feel understood and validated. You are the expert in your own life, but together we can walk the journey into bettering how you feel and work through what is holding you down.

As a therapist, I am here to guide you in the healing process. Life is full of stressors, and many times it becomes overwhelming and unmanageable. When this occurs it can manifest into anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, trouble staying focused, feeling disconnected, feeling excessively angry or guilty, or trouble finding meaning in life, to name only a few .

If there is one thing that is certain in life, it is unpredictability. We live in an ever-changing world, progressing and always evolving. As creatures of habit, the fickleness of life can be challenging. As a result, people are often frustrated and stressed out. As a therapist and a mental health advocate, it is a privilege and an honor to come alongside to help. My goal is to help people realize their potential and gain practical coping skills to manage stress. I have a unique ability to challenge people to make positive changes, develop insight, and to be more active participants in their healing.

It’s ok to not be ok. And when you’re not ok, it’s ok to reach out for help. Though life can often get us down, it is possible to rise above your circumstances, take control, and fight back. I believe that insight is a powerful tool in creating change within. As a therapist, I can help you better understand the connections between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. With this new insight, you can identify problematic ones and challenge, replace, or reframe them. The path to change starts with identifying your underlying needs and finding more effective ways to fulfill them.

My experience allows me to assist individuals with identifying challenging areas in their life and developing strategies and methodologies to adequately and timely address maladaptive behaviors and fears that are barriers to their mental health status and healthy growth and development. The hardest step is making the call and asking for help. Some may see that as a weakness where I see it as a strength. In our everyday lives we are asked to sacrifice and to help others, but who is helping you during your time of sadness, fear, anxiety or despair? I would like to be that light for you by offering non judgmental, client centered,

When life happens, things can get hard and it is okay to ask for help. Sometimes one simply needs the space to be able to share those feelings and to learn how to manage and cope with support from another. Therapy is a normal part of that process, part of our wellness and simple put: taking care of ourselves. Life throws curveballs and sometimes when that happens, we don't know how to respond or process those moments which is how therapy can help.
