Lately you’ve been feeling down. Maybe you're having trouble sleeping, eating, or isolating and every day feels like a fight. Perhaps you’ve been feeling nervous, maybe even for no clear reason, and it’s making it hard to focus or function well. Some people even feel like their mind has been playing tricks on them - like having extraordinary experiences where you’re seeing or hearing things others don’t seem to see or hear. Or perhaps those scary moments from your past seem to be getting bigger and bigger, making it really hard to keep running away from. And sometimes, life just feels hard. But it doesn't have to stay that way.

We seem to struggle to create room for self-compassion and acceptance in our lives, usually because they’ve been crowded out by our self-criticism or perfectionism. We have come by most of this honestly through the ways we were affected by early experiences in childhood or adolescence. When together we find a way to be with your experiences, including the difficult emotions that may arise when exploring them, we find our way to meaning and purpose. We find our way to the recognition of our shared humanity. We find our way to a more authentic and wholehearted life.

In one of his most famous poems, Walt Whitman says, “I contain multitudes.” And I think we all do–we contain many selves that have been born out of our life experiences, from joyful moments to painful ones. Some parts of our selves we really love and cherish; others, we may fear or distrust. By spending time with our parts, approaching them with curiosity and compassion, we can learn to accept, love, and learn from all of our parts, who, together, make us who we are. In this process, we also learn how to advocate for ourselves, how to heal from trauma, and how to love others.

Imagine a space where the world slows down just a little for you. Enough for you to connect to thoughts, sensations, and feelings that got lost along the way in your busy schedule. In this space you feel open to yourself in a way that you haven’t been before, curiosity becomes your greatest asset. Maybe you sought out therapy because things became too much or things felt unfulfilling, either way you knew you needed something to shift. My ideal client is someone who is collaborative, open to taking in different perspectives and holds goals around improving both the relationship with themselves and others.

You are tired of fighting, having to explain yourself, being disappointed, and grieving the life you planned as a child. Parenting is one of the HARDEST and most fulfilling experiences that one can have in this lifetime, but it can sometimes feel like a constant battle. If you toss in co-parenting with an ex-partner, trying to integrate a new partner into your "ready-made" family, and/or being a caregiver to a family member due to unfavorable circumstances, things get a lot more complicated. Being the child in these situations, can be even harder to navigate because everything can feel so unstable. All of it feels exhausting!

Have you experienced trauma in your life and seem to struggle with the same situations over and over, not knowing how to stop the vicious cycle. Are your emotions problematic, do you repeat unhealthy behaviors, relationships, have an onslaught of negative thoughts and no matter how successful you have become, you feel like a fake, insecure and if people really knew? How many times have you promised that you will stop, alcohol, drugs and really mean it, want it, yet once again fall short. As a veteran, were you in combat, was your military experience depleting, anxiety provoking and your life never the same? What keeps you stuck?

Accepting new daytime clients as of June 2022. - If you are like me, you have procrastinated this decision to seek counseling for some time, and you are steadily nearing desperation. Entering into therapy is difficult - it is important to find a therapist with whom you connect. I provide a free phone consultation and a half price first session, so we can decide if we are a good fit. I work best with clients who are motivated to begin the explorative process towards healing. I seek to honor the vulnerability required to make changes in one's life by listening without judgment and growing to understand the individual's experiences.

Hello Friend! Feel free to call me Jazz or Jazzy. I’m a curious person who loves helping my fellow humans find their way back home to themselves. This can mean different things depending on the individual, which is why we will work together to decide what it means for you. You’re the expert on your lived experience, I’m the one with the student debt for this degree, and we will work as a team to meet your therapeutic goals. My intention in sessions is to provide a safe place where you can finally set down some of the heavy burdens like anxiety, self-harm, shame, and trauma and begin to unpack them.
