I have come to understand depression as the experience of drowning under the weight of unexpressed grief. And if you find yourself struggling with depression I want you to know this: there is a path from where you are to a place that is much happier and calmer. We all suffer and struggle at some point in our lives. But just as there is suffering in life, there is a path from suffering to healing. I know this path well and I would be honored to work with you.

My ideal client is an adult, couple, or family that has experienced loss or trauma and wants to feel connected to themselves, those they love, and their community again. The individual/s may be experiencing extreme anxiety, irritability, or depression and have been trying to keep picking themselves up, but are tired and concerned about what their future holds. They often find themselves using a variety of means to numb such as eating, substance use, gambling, pornography, sex, video games, etc. They experience emptiness and feel that they really have no sense of who they are or what they want and often feel alone and disconnected.
