**Social distancing requires physical distance from others, but it does not mean you need must face the stressors and adjustments associated with COVID-19 alone. Ask me about video sessions and financial hardship rates, REGARDLESS of current income/employment status**. One thing all have in common as human beings is a natural drive to discover and hold on to a strong sense of self as we navigate the world. When the challenges we face in life feel like they are challenging or questioning our identity, this doesn't mean you are broken - it means that you are human.

People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons, but everyone is feeling emotional pain. If you are feeling this way, know you are not alone. Please know this pain is not permanent; there is help. It is not unusual to feel nervous coming to therapy the first time. There is a belief the therapist will judge them, which creates fear and uncertainty. Please know you will not be judged, but listened to with understanding and empathy.

Therapy is all about healing. Healing from the past, old wounds, thoughts or feelings that aren't serving you anymore. So often, we have learned various ways of living to get through the days, to cope, but it's surviving and not truly living. For most, facing those things seems scary and that fear keeps them from living the life they want. I see my role as a therapist is to foster a space of safety so healing can occur. Through compassion, honesty, and ultimately connection, I work with my clients to help them move towards their best selves.

My favorite all-time bumper sticker: Don't Believe Everything You Think! Obviously, everyone has problems in life, but both sages and scientists have discovered that how we think about our problems is a crucial variable in whether we grow through difficulties (past or present), or get mired in difficult emotions and unhelpful behavior patterns. While we all have unique histories and personalities, what leads to healing and change generally applies to all of us. But more than ever, we are living on "autopilot," and just trying to keep up. All the while, our busy minds provide a running commentary, often full of fear and criticism.
