Life is a journey full of ups and downs, twists and turns, dry valleys, and scenic mountaintops. At times, it can be difficult to navigate. We may resist going in a direction that feels unknown because it is uncomfortable to do things we've never done before; however, it is in the places of discomfort that we can create the most growth and discover our most authentic selves. Maybe you feel stuck, hurt, or abandoned. Maybe you feel stressed, alone, or tired. Maybe you feel disconnected from yourself or the people in your life. No matter where you find yourself on your journey, there is hope.

I want you to know what it’s like to live a life of healing. If you feel like you are drowning, overwhelmed, exhausted, or resentful - I can help. Together we will roll up our sleeves and get to work. It will get a little messy, but I’m not scared of the mess. I will support you while you learn to love the things you have previously hidden. Your pain, your thoughts, and your behaviors can all make sense when we explore them with kind curiosity. It is time to take off the shackles of your past, and live tomorrow more free than you were yesterday.

Each client comes to therapy for different reasons. Your unique challenges, background, strengths, and life experiences will guide me as we collaborate on treatment goals and explore how to reach them. My first task is to practice active listening and nonjudgmental curiosity as we get to know one another. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is what can provide the space for healing, growth, and improved mental health. Therapists are human, too, and we are constantly learning as we go. This is why I see clients as creative partners, not patients. We are in this unique process together.

Being a human in this world is hard. My office (even when it’s virtual) is a place where your pain and your joy are both welcome. You get to bring the messy, unfiltered, and stuck parts of yourself. The parts you hide from everyone else. You get to take off the mask. All of you is welcome. So often, without even realizing it, we become disconnected from our true Self. We lose touch with the things that bring us joy. We no longer know how to act in alignment with our values. Trauma can take this away from us. But we can come back. Back to our aliveness. Back to our intuition. Back to our true Self. And it is a journey worth taking.

My therapeutic style is ideal for clients looking to reconnect with themselves on all levels. Clients should come curious about identifying emotional and psychological blocks, as well as where trauma, tension, anxiety, or depression is stored in the physical body. I specialize in treating people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, illness, death, sexual assault survivors, and bi-polar. I frequently work with women who are trying to stabilize their body and mind after childbirth, trauma, or menapause. All are welcome.

As James Baldwin said, "Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced." I cannot promise that everything will be better every time, every day, but I do believe that we are more than the problems we face and the labels assigned to us. I work with clients to reclaim ownership of their lives and become empowered to work toward the changes they seek. Sometimes, as we change, our ideas and our goals may shift, and our understanding of possible or impossible may be altered. I am here to help my clients explore themselves, their problems, their goals, and the challenges they face along the way.

If you have ever dealt with anxiety, panic attacks, or fears of letting others down you have been fighting a battle that you don't need to continue to fight. We help individuals control their anxiety by teaching them techniques and tools that will allow them to regain control over their emotions. These are the same skills that professional athletes use to deal with the anxiety and the enormous amounts of pressure they deal with on a daily basis.

Life throws so much at us. Often our natural instinct is to cling to the happy times and push away pain and suffering. However, learning to accept difficult situations and accept change is possible through guidance and feedback. Learning to act effectively to accept change and to face the places where we need to improve is an act of courage that does not appear overnight. I believe in evidence-based and practical strategies to help my clients improve their lives and emotional well-being. I believe that change is not only possible but inevitable.

Dr. Maxwell specializes in treating chronically turbulent emotions, as well as difficulties relating comfortably and effectively to others. Sometimes these experiences go along with a feeling of not knowing who one is, as well as making rash choices one often regrets. These experiences may or may not be related to abuse(s) and/or neglect experienced in one’s childhood and teenage years. Clinically, these experiences sometimes manifest as personality disorders and/or complex posttraumatic stress disorder. He also helps people curb unruly anxiety, combat avoidance, disrupt depressive thinking patterns, and reshape unhelpful habits.

On the outside it seems like you have it all together, but inside it feels like you are falling apart. You’re tired of lacking confidence in yourself and feeling alone in your struggles. You feel guilty about the frustration and overwhelm you feel each day. It’s like you’re the one carrying all the weight. You’ve worked hard for success, but you aren't living the authentic life you hoped for, and you’ve basically resigned yourself to the idea that you may never find the fulfillment in relationships that you’ve found in your career.

Life is difficult for all of us at times, and it can be normal to become stuck in survival mode following traumatic events or severe life stressors. My heartfelt passion is to facilitate the gap between these temporary survival modes of reaction and a lifestyle that has you or your loved one feeling safe and living in a way that feels unshakably true to yourself and your ideals.

Maybe you're feeling stuck. Maybe you are seeking answers but not able to see through the darkness. Maybe peace feels impossible. Maybe you're questioning who you are or going through a life transition. Maybe it's your relationship or parenting or past hurts. This life experience is filled with highs, lows, and in-between moments. At times, we all want someone to join in our journey and walk alongside us so we can feel supported. I am here to meet you where you are in your life right now. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe that all of life is relational, whether that is within or outside with family, friends, society.

Sometimes we experience life changing events that cause us lose sight of our hopes and dreams. Our fears can deceive us into believing that we will never be okay again. We do not have to be defined by what has happened to us. I believe that no matter what we have been through we have the potential to create for ourselves, a happy, rich and full life worth living. It is not easy to overcome the bad experiences but it is possible. Therapy can increase psychological flexibility and allow us to not be open again. If you are tired of being limited and ready to make real changes therapy can help you create the life you wish to have.
