Anxiety and depression impact your work, relationships, and personal goals. But with support, it is completely possible to feel better and manage these often-debilitating symptoms. I specialize in assisting adults with anxiety/depression to manage their symptoms and reduce the impact they have on their lives. This includes women who suffer from cyclical anxiety, depression, or anger in relation to their menstrual cycles (aka PMS/PMDD.)

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.

Life can be beautiful, complicated, and messy all at the same time. The road at times can be riddled by twists, turns, and detours you were not expecting. It would be nice if life was a straight path to fulfillment and happiness but life is not linear. Perhaps you found yourself starting over after a recent break-up? Or, you experienced the loss of a loved one. Maybe even faced with an unexpected medical diagnosis or have been questioning your purpose in life. Whether you’re prepared or not, life has a way of making you feel the challenges you are faced with are too difficult to overcome.

Finding a therapist can feel overwhelming. You probably sense that it’s finally time to reach out for help, but feel unsure of where to begin. Perhaps you feel uncertain if there is anyone out there who can understand, let alone help. I believe that the strength of the therapeutic relationship directly impacts an individual’s capacity for change, and thus my first priority is to cultivate a safe, open, and compassionate relationship with each of my clients. My style of therapy is supportive, lively, and direct. My goal is to help you learn to trust yourself and feel less weighed down by self doubt.

Life is a journey with many challenges, and people often become stuck, whether in a way of feeling (sad, anxious, in pain) or a way of being (job, relationship, lifestyle). Such distress and confusion can make it hard to move forward. A therapist who genuinely understands and accepts you can help relieve that distress and mobilize your strengths to move forward in a meaningful direction. As a psychologist, I am skilled in helping you free yourself from being stuck to find the meaning, fulfillment and joy that also can be part of life's journey.
