With Imago our issues and conflicts aren't the problem, they're the solution: they're signposts pointing the way toward healing the true, underlying causes. Imago teaches you how to safely explore these deeper emotional undercurrents together, so that your disagreements can actually become opportunities for greater intimacy, as you learn about each other.

Life is weird. It’s stressful, complicated, confusing, and painful, there’s no doubt. There’s something beautiful about being human and having a human experience with emotions. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable to acknowledge the pain you are in, it can feel like no one understands, you may feel stuck in attaining the life you desire, or that your fears and worries stop you from reaching your goals. We're all imperfect, and often find ourselves in a dark space, and that's okay. It’s where the beauty and humanness of us lies. Sometimes we need help embracing who we are. Asking for help can be scary and daunting, but I am here for you!

Life can be difficult. Often, we are faced with issues and circumstances that can be challenging at best, and most of us were not taught the skills to help us successfully navigate through our experiences. We feel the pressure to please others while forgoing our own needs & feelings. We all want to feel more joy in our lives, but we don't always know how to achieve it.

Are you looking to overcome a substance use disorder or any kind of addictive behavior (e.g. food addiction). Do you feel like you have tried so many times to be sober but just can't understand why you keep relapsing? My approach to treating these disorders is holistic but also can work with the 12 step model. I look at what may be driving this behavior the "underlying core issues" rather than focusing on symptoms alone. I do not see clients who are actively using drugs or alcohol. I am able to counsel family members of addicts.

Do you ever feel like others don’t understand what you’re going through? Have others responded to your attempt at being heard by letting you know why you shouldn’t think or feel that way? If so, you probably know, as I do, that this is extremely unhelpful. That’s why my primary goal as a therapist is to listen and understand with you, in an attempt to make sense of whatever’s going on.

But the transformation to your best self is profound, and typically life altering.
