Life throws us so many curveballs. Whether a child or adult, I can support you in dealing with the latest. It might seem like there's no way to feel better or there's no good option for your situation. You might be feeling confused about the best path or just know that you need support in doing hard things. Maybe there's a change you know you need to make and it's a little bit scary. We all need help at different points in our lives. Whether you're thinking about identity related matters, struggling to accept yourself as you are, trying to cope with the effects of oppression, or something else, we can work on it together.

Are you having a difficult time feeling a sense of peace and calm as you move through your life? Do you find yourself worrying a lot throughout the day or night? Perhaps you or your kids are struggling with the day to day stress of relationships, work, school and life. For some people, anxiety feels like pressure to do everything for everyone, while for others, there is an internal sense of worry. In either case, for both children and adults, counseling can help. I love helping clients learn some specific, creative coping strategies to help you and your family start to feel more balanced, worry less and work toward your goals.

Psychotherapy can be very helpful to many people who find life more difficult than they would like it to be. Starting psychotherapy is not easy and I will help you navigate appropriate treatment choices. When you come in, I will listen carefully to what you are going through. It is important for me that you feel safe and respected. Together we will try to understand your challenges and begin to make helpful changes. You will not be labeled. We will figure out the goals of treatment and work towards your goals at your own pace.
