Stepping into therapy may be due to depression, anxiety, phobias, relationship issues, sense of unhappiness, sense of emptiness or inability to find much meaning in life and living. It can be a choice we make to explore ourselves today, examine the past or expand on ideas and future dreams. If you are driven to grow, develop and have a natural curiosity in examining life, living and discovering more about your own path, then psychotherapy is one way to engage in series of exploratory dialogues to live with higher level of awareness & consciousness.

Life is filled with good times and bad, struggles and joy, ups and downs. I approach therapy with the goal to lessen overall misery and increase joy. I have met incredible people in my life, and I have enjoyed hearing and helping people through their journeys. We are all human, and I think it's important to be very human in therapy. Even as a psychologist, I struggle at times too. Therapy is a wonderful place to learn how you impact the world, how the world impacts you, and to take the control back. After all, we can't change the things that happen around us, but we can change what we do about them.

Everyone can enjoy a satisfying life of love, work and play. However, we may find ourselves in personal patterns, relationships, or with life issues that keep us from living to our fullest. Though circumstances and illness are difficult, our manner of dealing with them determines whether we are happy or sad, engaged or depressed, relaxed or anxious, and even feeling physically unwell or healthy. Trauma and poor coping are often related to our past desperate attempts to take care of ourselves in difficult situations. Through a passionate, humor-filled, authentic journey we can seek to understand and change your life.

Self-knowledge is a lifelong journey. The ideal client is one who has willingness to move inward toward self-knowledge. This most effectively occurs as we explore ourselves in relationship to others. The fit between you and your therapist is fundamental to this process. It is imperative for a client to feel safe and supported by their therapist in order to tolerate and receive the compassionate honesty and gentle confronting which are the keys to this transformative work. If you are willing and ready to confront your light and shadow, I welcome you to move inward, together.

Your overall wellness extends beyond your physical health and, by taking this first step to find a therapist, you are showing yourself love and compassion. Thank you for making your emotional and mental well-being a priority. Change takes time, is difficult, and can be scary but is ultimately, liberating and transformative. When we make changes in our lives, we open ourselves up to growth and new possibilities. Ghandi believed “the future depends on what you do today.” I believe each of us can overcome the obstacles that impact our relationships, happiness, quality of life, and keep us from being our most authentic selves.

This journey we call life can be filtered with complex and remarkably challenging experiences. At times we all struggle with intricate emotions, overwhelming thoughts, unwanted patterns of behaviors, undesirable interactions with others, or a fractured sense of self. Sometimes we are able to navigate these demanding aspects of life; other times our capacity to cope and combat these issues are jeopardized. While both responses are completely normal, it can be incredibly helpful to have a supportive voice along the way via therapy – and your movement to seek therapy is truly a testament to your strength of mind and will.
