You have a hard time asking for help. You believe you should be able to do it all and if you are struggling it is because you aren't working hard enough. You work so hard to be the best mom, partner, daughter, friend, and professional. You feel the weight of the world on your shoulders and you feel like you can't breathe. You sacrifice your sleep, diet, and overall well-being for everyone else. You're starting to get resentful that others can make time for themselves, but you can't. You wonder how you look in the eyes of your partner, kids, and co-workers and if they can tell something has changed.

Stories have always fascinated me. They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another. They are also a powerful vehicle for how we perceive, interpret, define and live our lives, yet sometimes it can be easy to forget that we can be the authors of our story, not just a character proceeding along some previously determined narrative.

In my work, the first goal is to create a safe and supportive environment that allows for greater understanding of the concerns, symptoms, and struggles that bring you to treatment. Change is possible with the willingness to explore one's inner life and contend with the conflicts inhibiting you from a greater sense of freedom. Psychotherapy/psychoanalysis is a demanding endeavor but the benefits are immeasurable!

Do you feel like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh? Your outlook on life is gloomy at best. When your mood and energy are low, it’s hard to get excited to show up for your life. Maybe you’re attracted to risk, and as such, using drugs/alcohol to the point where it's derailing your life? Does food control you or do you use food to control your life? There’s also the worrier. Does your stomach ache, your palms sweat, or maybe the spinning in your head is nonstop about whether or not to take a certain action. You get stuck in paralysis due to all of your analysis. In all this madness, there’s no time to thrive; merely survive.

Sometimes children and adolescents feel sad, anxious, and overwhelmed by changing life situations, which may impact the development of their full academic, emotional and social potential. Sometimes a home can be a seat of conflict instead of refuge, because of stressful situations, such as divorce, financial difficulties, or stage-of-life changes. Understanding and working through the complex emotional issues confronting children, adolescents and their families is the focus of my training and my practice. Our goal in treatment is empowerment through strategies that build resilience, strength and hopeful perspectives.
