Announcement icon I am providing teletherapy sessions (video via Simple Practice telehealth services).
Are you looking for a safe and non judgemental space to explore what could be preventing you from living your best life? I love helping people feel better. I became a therapist because I have experienced firsthand how healing the theraputic relationship can be. What if you could decrease the anxiety that feels so overwhelming at times that it interferes with daily living or leaves you feeling like you can’t breathe? What if you could lessen the depressive feelings that limit your ability to achieve happiness and that interfere with other aspects of your life? What if you had the skills to navigate challenging situations?
I help you evolve your current skills and to create healthier ones. Let me help you show up for yourself, decrease your emotional distress and develop insight into patterns and thought processes. Healing begins when you are heard and understood. You matter. Your story matters. This is your journey, and we will navigate your experiences together.
You are not broken. Life will always be full of ups and downs, struggles and challenges. We will all face difficulty and pain in our lives. Most of us go through life without learning how to begin the healing journey, or have the skills that we need to heal. Currently accepting new clients for weekend and evening appointments. I look forward to connecting.
