One of the deepest pains we can feel is to suffer alone, to feel unseen or unheard, to feel that we don’t belong. Though we all have incredible strengths and potential to thrive, it might feel difficult to get through trying times in isolation. On the other hand, the presence of an affirming, supportive, and caring person to talk to can make all the difference on the journey to healing and thriving. Someone you can sit with in your pain who offers hope, who strives to understand you as a whole person inclusive of your identities and experiences, and who works with you to locate and address the root causes of your suffering.

Does guilt get in the way of you saying no and setting boundaries? Most of my clients are impacted by these issues and feel helpless in living an abundant life of self-love. My expertise is working with people to find healing and restoration through empowerment, developing insight, and working with the body. I understand how power, oppression, and trauma can contribute to distress and I work to instill hope.

Welcome. I work with adolescents and adults that are struggling to manage difficult emotions - anxiety, sadness, anger, disappointment, envy, loneliness, and grief. Navigating what a full life has to offer can be tricky; going off to college, blended families, parenting concerns, relationship problems, divorce, loss, multicultural issues can leave us feeling lost and alone. Together, we work in an empathic and safe space to explore the twists and turns of your unique experiences. By thoughtfully examining emotions and painful experiences you can increase coping skills and bolster resiliency.

I believe there is a resiliency that lies within each and every one of us. That strength is what gets us through each situation – even when we thought, “There’s no way I am going to make it through.” However, there are times when things can become overwhelming, and we need someone to listen, and encourage us as we navigate through the difficult situations life throws at us. No matter what brings you to therapy, know that it will be a space for healing, growth, and realization of the strengths that lie within you.

These experiences help to shape my work with my clients, and I am able to provide various different lenses from which to consider common problems. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, familial problems, phase of life problems, or are looking to gain more insight into who you are, therapy can prove to be a useful tool to move towards healing.
