If you are experiencing any difficulties in life, one of the bravest things that you can do is seek help. I am here to help you accomplish your goals to live a happy, healthy, and successful life! Caring for others was introduced early in my life as I witnessed my family support foster youth in their homes, provide mental health services, and develop a nonprofit organization to support underserved populations - in honor of my late grandmother. I assist individuals in need of healing from depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, grief, and other mood disorders.

A patient wrote this to me: "You are someone who knows the song in my heart, and could sing it back to me when I had forgotten the words." In my over 27 years of psychotherapy practice, I have learned several things: one is, in meeting with patients, to clear my mind (at least to try hard!) of all the theories and clinical orientations I have absorbed and to allow my emotions, mind, body, and considerable life experience to be present in our interactions.

Maybe from the outside, everything looks fine. But inside, there is sadness or worry -- parts of you that are wounded, burdened, trapped in an endless cycle of pain. Maybe other parts of you are caught in extreme roles of perfectionism, self-criticism, addictions -- anything to get you numb or keep you distracted. Keeping these wounded parts hidden is a full-time job - and maybe it feels too scary to be yourself in relationships. If unresolved issues from your past are keeping you from having the kind of life you want, I'd like to help.

Are you frustrated with how much you worry? Is your sadness causing you to lose motivation? Are you noticing dissatisfaction in your relationship? Anxiety, sadness and relationship problems often trigger one another. Anxiety and depression are exhausting. They drain you of your energy and sap you of joy. In addition, relationship problems can present anxiety and depression in ways you may have never experienced. You may begin to feel frustrated, irritable or even hopeless. Doing the most menial task may feel like a burden. You begin to feel like a burden.

It feels like nobody really knows how you feel on the inside. In many ways you're successful, accomplished and have your stuff together. But privately you are aware of your personal struggles. It could be any of a number of things: low self worth, lack of confidence, pervasive negative thoughts, explosive anger, isolation, intense anxiety, or deep feelings of sadness or self-hate. You have tried to handle it, control it or change it to no avail. Something has to give; you're tired of the struggle and ready for a change.
