Often times what we desire the most are also the things that trigger great fear in us. Sharing our vulnerable stories can be scary, but you are not alone. We all need someone to hold a space for us, to listen without judgement and have a heart to understand. This is the reason for my approach, a collaborative approach. This allows me to meet you directly where you are. We are in this together.

My goal for every individual, couple, or family I work with is not just to solve problems but to achieve actual long-term happiness. I do a developmental, growth-oriented style of therapy, best suited to intelligent adults, couples, or families interested in permanent solutions to emotional difficulties such as depression, inter-personal conflict, loneliness, lack of meaning, insecurity, panic, or anger. Therapy as I practice it will change how you understand yourself and other people, how you react to life events, and most important of all, how you feel on a day-to-day basis.

Do you critique yourself often, replay conversations over and over, or think of all the "what ifs"? If so, you may benefit from therapy services. I work with children ages 6+, adolescents, and adults dealing with anxiety, depression, and life changes that are difficult to navigate. I help clients learn how to manage stress and develop insightful decision making skills. I also help clients develop healthy communication skills to increase assertiveness, confidence, and deeper connections with others. Therapy can also help with identifying negative self-talk and coping skills that may be doing more harm than good.

Oftentimes we find ourselves struggling to break from long-standing patterns that force us to be rigid in the ways we relate to the world around us and the world within in us. These patterns, which seek consistent expression in our daily lives inhibit us from experiencing true presence during the most precious moments of our existence while hindering our pursuit of success. I work with individuals, couples, and families who seek to free themselves from these damaging patterns so that a more flexible, authentic way of relating to the world can emerge.

Using a warm and encouraging space, I help clients feel supported, inspired, and empowered to make meaningful and lasting change. I often say that attending therapy is like cleaning out your emotional closet. At first, it may feel intimidating to sort through the things that have been building up for months, years, even decades. Maybe the piles seem a little overwhelming. Maybe you feel stuck. I'm here to help you take all of the clothes out, sort through them, and find a place for what is important and fulfilling. I'll help you learn the skills you can use to maintain your emotional closet - even after our goals together are met.
