To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

I believe therapy is a way to develop a secure connection that can be rare in everyday life. Developing this connection allows one a space to express authentically what may have been hidden or not heard. Within the safety of this space, real change can begin to occur. So often we believe that it is by applying willpower to an issue that we can instigate change, and are left feeling defeated in the end. In therapy, we get the chance to take these moments of defeat and transform them. We can reorganize, reorient, gain hope, and live more satisfying lives.

No current availability. Would you like to experience more joy and meaning in life? Feeling stuck in the same old unworkable patterns? Maybe you feel like an imposter, barely holding it together on the inside. Or maybe things have already fallen apart despite your best efforts. Why continue to struggle alone? Life is hard enough, but for some people it’s even harder because of depression, anxiety, trauma, or chronic illness. Maybe you think you don’t even have a good reason for feeling as you do. This is common and understandable. Don't let it stop you from taking action to feel better. You don't need an "excuse" to come to therapy.

HOPE CAN BE HARD TO COME BY IN TIMES OF DAILY STRUGGLES AND DISTRESS. But it’s also what keeps us walking down the hallways of life toward healing and relief. My goal has always been to help others find hope for their future. Hope when life brings challenges, hope despite the past, hope in the present, and hope for what’s to come.
