In early life, before we are even consciously aware of it, we begin to utilize the coping skills and self-talk language that the adults around us used. Later in life, we may realize that these coping skills and styles of self-talk are ineffective for us. I hope to help you reconstruct your internal dialogue to be healthier and more adaptive to your life circumstances. I hope to use our conversations as a means to help you reconnect with the authentic you. Therapy, to me, is about understanding the connection between one’s mind, body, and spirit. Once we learn that relationship, we can be our most present and confident selves.

So, you're feeling disconnected from your partner & intimacy & sex feels like it has become a casualty of time, grind culture, managing life expectations &/or resentments. Jumping from one task to the next with convos regarding logistics seem to be the main topics of communication. Parenthood has led to a decline in energy & an increase in frustration in your relationship & you would love to get back to the "I can't get enough of you" days with your partner. Support around navigating mismatched desire, rebuilding trust and intimacy, enhancing communication & repairing after conflict are some of areas that feel important to work on.

Therapy may seem intimidating, but sometimes what you are most afraid of doing can be the very thing that will set you free! I believe that therapy, coupled with a mindset of positivity, can be the life-changing event that propels you out of negative circumstances. Unexpected things are going to happen in life, people may disappoint us; all we can really control is how we choose to handle things. I utilize courage, humor, empathy, and emotionally focused techniques to create a safe, non-judgemental space for couples, adults, and adolescents to explore, heal, and achieve lasting change in their lives.

I believe the most essential part of the therapeutic process is the relationship between client and therapist.
Reaching out for help during our vulnerable moments can be overwhelming and intimidating. Sometimes we can convince ourselves that we should figure it out on our own or that things aren't bad enough to need help and we can find ourselves reluctant to take that next step. Regardless of where you are on your healing journey, I will meet you there and join beside you to work through the things that feel unbearable and impossible to overcome on your own.
