Therapeutic support and guidance can be an essential part of getting you through the multiplication of stressors over the past year. For some the recent losses, changes & uncertainty has resulted in loneliness, depression & anxiety for the future. For others this crucible has exacerbated problems that existed before. We are all struggling as COVID has forced us to sit still with ourselves & ask the essential existential questions of life. I would look forward to being part of the process to understand yourself better & navigate this time period to attain a sense of wellness & growth.

"Mental strength is not the ability to stay out of the darkness; it's the ability to sit present in the darkness knowing the light will shine again”, (ADHDsuperhero). I have a passion for assisting my clients through this process. Self-care is a practice we rarely exercise. You cannot care for others until you take care of yourself. Make the decision to take time for you; you are worth it!

The ideal client for me is someone who is ready for something different. It’s normal to feel fear when stepping into change and I work with my clients so they don’t have to be stopped or dismayed by said fears or doubts. The therapeutic process involves a willingness to learn and being open to outside and differing perspectives. I’m passionate about partnering with clients who are willing to work together to achieve their goals.

Challenges arise throughout life. At times you may feel stuck, lost, misunderstood, or disconnected. This can lead to anxiety, sadness, and frustration. I work with young adults and teens in various transitions in their lives who are struggling, and believe relief from such negative places is possible. Maybe you're trying to navigate relationships with family, friends, or co-workers; or trying to establish a healthy personal or professional relationship. Maybe you're trying to manage different personalities at work. Or, maybe you're a new parent trying to manage your changed relationship with your partner, and raise a child.

*Accepting new clients using only Telehealth due to COVID-19* Life sometimes throws us unwanted curveballs and challenges that are difficult to navigate on our own. These challenges can make us feel like we are alone and powerless to change the things we want to change. Navigating these challenges in therapy is a way of choosing to face these challenges head on, to grow, and to heal. I know it takes so much courage and strength to bring you here, and my main goal is to match that courage and strength with acceptance, understanding, and unconditional support.

When difficult things happen--trauma, loss, extreme stress--our brains and bodies have an amazing capacity cope; for example, we are flooded with adrenaline to help us survive or we go into shock to protect from the depths of loss. However, sometimes events overwhelm all our capacities, and we get stuck in those events. Using both talk therapy and EMDR, I can help you understand how your mind and body is attempting to cope, learn how to reduce, tolerate and manage the lingering effects, appreciate and reconnect to your emotions, become more embodied, process past events, and find meaningful purpose and connection in the present.
