You are not broken, you are deeply hurt. It is easy to find yourself in unhelpful patterns & ways of being. This might be due to your nervous system being flooded with anger, fear & despair. In a creative way to survive, you have found self-protection strategies. Unfortunately, these strategies are likely no longer helpful. Part of our work together will be unraveling this muscle memory to reveal how you can live a life that is true to you. YOU become the place of self-awareness, peaceful acceptance & intentional action. As a certified trauma professional & art therapist, I integrate these tools into our therapeutic work.

Life is hard and at times it can feel overwhelming and difficult to find answers. Therapy should be a non-judgmental space to explore challenges and possibilities and also to work on healing hurts, setting goals, and moving from a place of merely surviving to a place of independently thriving.

I have partnered with clients in order to assist them with turning these struggles into times of learning, growing and healing.

Is a satisfying life, a life worth living, difficult for you to envision and/or create? Life is often very hard, especially when struggling with anxiety, trauma, depression, relationship problems and other psychological concerns. It is not uncommon, even for very strong people, to feel overwhelmed and unable to cope or incapable of making desired changes. At these times, a skilled and caring counselor may help you to find your way to a better life. Note: I am an individual therapist and do not see couples or do family therapy.

Life is often really tough. My goal is to provide a safe space for my clients to share their story, their struggles, their victories and their goals so they can feel less alone and also have a therapeutic partner to sort through what they'd like to understand better about themselves in order to take new steps towards wellness and growth. Being understood by a compassionate person is strengthening, and so is having a therapeutic partner to help you think about what you're thinking about and what you'd rather be focusing on.
