Our mental health is so vital, but we often put it on the back burner to take care of "more important things". I am so glad you're here, which tells me that you are starting to consider prioritizing your mental health and emotional wellbeing. Sometimes, we try to "keep it all together" in order to focus on other things in our life, such as work, school, family, and relationships, without really realizing that our symptoms bleed into every single area of our life. When that happens, it can feel like our sadness, anxiety, anger, flashbacks, or whatever else, is affecting our ability to function normally and live a fulfilling life.

The focus of my practice is to help people manage and cope better, and to help them understand themselves better in the process. I find it incredibly gratifying to be part of the healing and growth process that defines the psychotherapy experience. My patients work on relationship issues, substance abuse issues, work issues, depression and anxiety issues, and developmental issues having to do with the ever changing demands on all of us as we get older. I also work with couples and families, with particular emphasis on adolescence and young adulthood in the family work that I do.

I also believe that self-harmful behaviors always have roots in past experiences of threat and it can be life-changing to discover these connections.

It’s time to make a change. Every day, you serve other people, whether in your work life or home life. Helping people heal and grow is hugely important for you, but now it’s time to refocus on your own healing and growth too. You’ve been feeling unfulfilled, stressed out, and run down. You're losing sight of the deeper purpose for your life; a spiritual or creative drive that's going unfulfilled. Compassion fatigue is leaving you too drained to thrive. When you're joyful and healthy, you can serve the world more effectively. Self-care and emotional resilience are essential to good health.
