Are you looking to make changes in your life but not sure where to begin? I am committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for exploring the obstacles that are getting in the way of creating the happy and satisfying life you want. Often, we unknowingly continue in the same path, expecting something different not realizing that real changes starts within us and that understanding ourselves better is a first step for creating growth, healing and happiness. Therapy is hard work but a worthy work and it is a privilege to be a part of your journey and helping you discover, heal and grow beyond your current circumstances.

I believe that all humans have a resilient spirit which allows them to overcome any obstacle before them. Sometimes we forget who we are or perhaps we never fully knew. Maybe we felt we were never able to be our authentic selves. It's possible we think there's something wrong with us or we're broken. Or is it that we struggle to manage mental health symptoms and we become emotionally deregulated and filled with shame? Maybe you think that you have gone to far and there is no hope for you. You are not alone. I have helped countless people with stories like these and many more. What ever it is that is holding you back, I can help.

Life is difficult, that is for sure. Therapy can be a great asset to individuals that are struggling in any number of ways. It can be such an eye opening experience to sit and talk with someone who has no vested interest in your life. If you are someone that is looking to understand the barriers in your life and make your overall wellbeing a priority, I would love to begin that journey with you.

Your family may be feeling like it is being turned upside down as your developing young adult struggles to find their place in the world. I work within the family system to re-establish the balance that is necessary for a healthy, growing family and find order within the chaos. Teens and young people may appear to be rebelling; fighting back against all of the families efforts to offer guidance and support. We can work together to turn this energy into a productivity and success in academic, social, and all other aspects of life.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, down, or anxious and don't know what to do or where to go? Do you feel very alone and nobody else understands or has experienced what you have/or are experiencing? Are you having trouble sleeping due to looping thoughts running through your mind? Have all your old ways of coping stopped working? We all need support and guidance along our journey.

How many times have you said “I can’t do this anymore”? Depression is a thief of hope. You want life to be different, brighter, better, but nothing seems to be working. You slip into old habits over and over and you’re no longer sure if things can really change. You’ve considered giving up, but you don’t even know what that looks like and you still want to know you really tried. You wonder if therapy will work. You wonder if anything will work because you’ve already tried so hard. How can anything be different when everything is out of your control? Don’t give up.

Transitions are a natural progression in life, which at times can leave us feeling alone, overwhelmed, and terrified. Much like the seasons; our hopes, dreams, and relationships change. Maneuvering through these chapters in our lives can be a daunting process. In my experience, when a person can share their struggles within therapy, they can begin to better understand their thoughts, emotions, and how this influences their relationships with others.
