What would it be like to feel like yourself again? So often in life, we push others away when we feel our worst. The things we enjoy quickly depart with them. We are left engulfed in feelings of hopelessness and despair, losing our sense of self and purpose. Although these issues are our responsibility, we don’t need to address them on our own. Therapy can help.I believe that we are not museums meant to preserve our negative experiences. Our past issues can be resolved. Through resolution of past experiences we are able to enter into a loving relationship with ourselves.

One of the early questions I ask a new client is, "where are you hoping this relationship will take you?". For some, the answer to this question is clear. They imagine a life where their anxiety or depressive symptoms no longer get in the way of attending school or work, spending time with friends and enjoying their days. Others hope for a time when they feel physically and emotionally well enough to enjoy each day. Many people struggle with a vision for their future. Often, the path behind us is full of wrong turns or the path ahead feels full of obstacles. Regardless of where you are, I will join with you and support your journey.

I help people who are feeling depressed, feel less depressed. I understand how uncomfortable it can be to feel stuck in depression. Are you having trouble sleeping, eating too little, or too much? Hiding how you really feel inside, not wanting others to know? Others say you have so much to be thankful for, but you just feel guilty and ashamed that you’re not able to feel that way; forcing a smile, but not feeling it inside? There is always a reason for the way we feel, and I can help you figure out what is really going on inside of you. Together we can figure out some ways to help you feel relief.

I am currently accepting clients on a waitlist for December; please email me if you are interested and we can meet for a free video consult. I love working with people who are seeking growth and self-understanding. Therapy is hard work. It pushes us to see things in new ways, to explore feelings and behavior patterns. And, hopefully, it leads to feeling healthier and more connected to ourselves and our needs and in our relationships. I approach therapy from a holistic and integrative perspective--I believe well-being is influenced and impacted by many factors including physical health, genetics, personality, and life experiences.
