Painful past experiences and current life stressors can equally challenge our sense of self and our connections with others. Often without realizing it, we can continue to operate from old patterns long after they have stopped serving us.

Whether you want to make a change in your life or are recovering from life events through which you have already changed, my aim is to support the transformational processes that are taking place in you. Change can be daunting or painful, and it can also open up the possibility of living more fully and feeling more real. Together, we will explore the meaning that things have for you and learn to attend to the parts of you that have not been in a position to surface before. I facilitate change through expansion and reorientation around what is, at a deeper level, known.

We live in a stressful, complex, and contradictory world. And though you do your best to cope with the chaos around you, sometimes it gets overwhelming. The chaos can make you question your decisions - sometimes it can even make you question who and how you are. Why are there so many obstacles to the life and relationships you want? Shouldn’t there be a clearer path? It can be so hard to navigate through the noise. Craving to connect more fully but end up feeling needy and more alone. Wanting to feel safe, but unease grows and bleeds through. Striving to be authentic, but there is so much noise it is hard to hear your true self.

I work with folks who are seeking a stronger sense of self-trust, ease, and ability to be connected and present in their life, hobbies, and relationships. Whether you are seeking to understand yourself, develop tools for managing stress, or align decisions with your values, you don't have to do it alone. Maybe you understand some of your patterns and past hurts, but still feel frustrated with what to do about them. Maybe life is changing and you need stability and a listening ear. I believe that self-compassion and acceptance paired with supportive relationships creates a more fulfilling life (with a little humor along the way)!

Sometimes life is hard. People have been taught there's something’s wrong with them because they have problems. Nothing could be further from the truth. Having difficulties is part of the human experience. People pretend they’re okay when they’re not. They keep all their pain and suffering to themselves. They’re afraid if they tell the truth, they’ll be rejected. Therapy can open the door for you to stop pretending you’re “fine.” You can find the freedom to be you. Therapy helps you come out of isolation and get connected with someone. You can have a “loving witness to your pain.”
