Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start..Nido Qubein. Life will always present challenges & sometimes can be complicated with feelings of depression or anxiety. I believe by exploring the relationship between an individual’s thoughts and behaviors in a warm and empathic environment and the identification of appropriate coping skills, your quality of life can improve. A client-centered approach highlighting individual strengths to achieve personal goals is implemented. Motivational interviewing and Solution-focused techniques are employed as we partner together.

“Focus attention on the feeling inside you. Know that it is the pain-body. Accept that it is there. Don't think about it - don't let the feeling turn into thinking. Don't judge or analyze. Don't make an identity for yourself out of it. Stay present, and continue to be the observer of what is happening inside you. Become aware not only of the emotional pain but also of "the one who observes," the silent watcher. This is the power of the Now, the power of your own conscious presence. Then see what happens.” ― Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now. I am honored to join you in Present Space to "see what happens."

Do you ever find yourself exhausted during the day because worry kept you up half the night? You know your worries feel out of control but you can't seem to find the off switch. You worry about the things you didn't do and if what you did do was good enough! Overthinking, perfectionism, worry and doubt- the cycle can be relentless. What if I told you that therapy can help you break the cycle? You don't have to suffer from anxiety, panic and emotional pain. You can learn tools and techniques to help you overcome these patterns and regain a sense of confidence and daily well being. I've done it and so can you.

My ideal client? Probably you! Therapy requires engagement, and searching for a therapist is a great, positive step. I've worked with children and teens plenty, and I've become pretty good at engaging even the most reluctant. I really enjoy helping others find their identity and their comfortable space. I tend to work with anxiety disorders, trauma, and family conflict. Of course, what is trauma and conflict without stress, anger, and some low moods? I've worked with pretty much everything, and helping others identify their needs and goals is very satisfying.

The author J. K. Rowling states: 'To hurt is as human as to breathe.' The good news is this: your pain doesn't have to last forever--there is a way through it. Every person's process of growth is unique, and I draw from multiple therapeutic models to help my clients find a more life-giving way of being in the world. I've taken this journey myself, and I look forward to accompanying you as you take yours.

I specialize in working with women who work really hard to make sure everything looks okay on the outside when it doesn’t feel that way on the inside. Clients who come to me are often overwhelmed with pressure to get things perfect and struggle with feeling “enough”, some experiencing imposter syndrome. They often feel an imbalance in their lives and are quick to sacrifice self-care for others or in the face of stress. They feel their emotions strongly and sometimes feel controlled by them, leaving them often emotionally and physically drained. My clients are ready to create change in their lives & feel more peace of mind.
