So many of us are simply trying to cope with day to day challenges and do not recognize their need for exploration or creativity.

Seeking psychotherapy is a sign of resourcefulness. When we are overwhelmed by painful feelings, we scramble to find ways to avoid and deny them. We cling to stories and beliefs that leave us feeling anxious and exhausted.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.
