Are you struggling with relationship issues or a life transition? Feeling anxious or depressed? I offer therapy in a safe, warm, non-judgemental environment. There are so many influences in this world that shape the way we think about ourselves and others. Sometimes our thinking has become so negative that it is hard to see our situation as hopeful or positive. I see therapy as a collaborative effort between the therapist and the client. No matter what you are struggling with, I can help you make a fresh start and renew your thinking, and make positive changes!

Are you a person of color in a relationship with a person who believes they are better than you, and everyone else around them? Or, did you grow up with controlling parents, expecting nothing but perfection yet became envious of your accomplishments - so much they found ways to make your wins all about them? Or, maybe you have a boss or coworker at work who is "difficult" - demanding all your attention, with an inflated ego, and judgmental of you because things are always "your fault"? If you are in a relationship with someone like this, you may be dealing with narcissistic abuse. I can help you with this situation.

Welcome! I specifically enjoy working with adult women and their partners who have a history of childhood trauma, and are looking for more insight into their thoughts, feelings, and behavior patterns. Maybe it seems like everything is against you, that life will never get better, or that everyone else seems to have it together except you. Perhaps you have struggled for a long time with controlling your impulses, relationships never seem to stick, and chaos and crisis seems to follow you wherever you go. We can address feelings such as shame, distrust, overwhelm, panic, irritability, anger, and depression without judgement.

Is your relationship in distress? Are you feeling anxious, depressed, or stuck? It is easy to become annoyed with your partner or yourself, during these difficult times. Maybe you are concerned about communication, money, parenting, infidelity, or intimacy. Perhaps you want to learn from the previous relationships to improve current or future ones. Does it ever feel like life is just so stressful? If you are struggling with any of these types of issues, therapy and counseling can help. My approach, in working with couples and individuals, is empathic, non-judgmental, insightful, collaborative, engaging, and supportive.

Therapy is a collaborative process. I understand there are many times in our lives when we need more support to help with a transition, a loss, a relationship, or a child. My approach is to assist you in gaining insight and awareness around issues that impact you in your life. I focus on the development of coping strategies, improving communication skills, and resolving conflict related to work, family, and in relationships. It is my belief that therapy in a safe, supportive, respectful environment can empower someone to find their voice and regain balance.

It is imperative for me to provide my clients with a warm, safe, and comfortable therapeutic space in which they will be invited to share, explore, and grow. Building a healthy collaborative relationship with my clients provides a foundation for our work together. I not only seek to alleviate symptoms and foster self-understanding, but I also encourage my clients to learn from their symptoms. I have found that increasing one's sense of awareness and balance can be helpful in many situations. At the same time, I do my best to meet clients where they are in their lives and work at their pace.

Life's not going how you want? When I first went into therapy, I thought I was going to find out terrible things about myself. What I discovered was that I was simply a human being. I mention this so you will know that working with me is not a blame game but an exploration of what is working well in your life, and what is not. Then together we develop strategies for you to create the life you want.
