You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom.

Making the decision to seek therapy, and finding the right provider for yourself are the first steps on the path to change. I do not take for granted the significance a therapeutic relationship can hold and see the work as a privilege. Like any healthy relationship, the therapeutic connection has to be rooted in trust. I hope to earn that trust with you by being present and engaged in our work. Life very rarely leaves anyone without the experiences of anxiety, sadness, stress, and pain at times. As well as joy, excitement, and satisfaction. You are not alone, and I would like to help you toward a positive leaning balance.

We do the best we can with the histories and resources we have. Our experiences and relationships shape/influence us, sometimes leaving us hopeful and nourished and other times leaving us stuck, depleted, anxious, sad, confused/overwhelmed. With a safe space and support, we can draw on our inner resilience to confront, manage and transcend our challenges, freeing us to live more authentic and fulfilling lives. My work is trauma-informed. My process is collaborative and interactive. I approach each therapy encounter with an open mind, recognizing that you are the expert in your life and know what works and what you need from therapy.

One of the pillars of a fulfilling life is the ability to be our authentic selves. Sometimes obstacles, hardships, and missteps cause us to forgo authenticity to survive. As a result, we may feel stuck, lost, or alone in our struggles. As a therapist, I see myself as a partner to my clients in their journey toward healing and growth. My approach is holistic - I consider the whole person and their context in everything I do, and I work collaboratively to ensure that each session feels personalized and effective. I provide a safe space to process where you are and begin to make progress toward where you'd like to be.

I find the most satisfaction working with those struggling with relationships - relationships with others as well your relationship with yourself. This struggle might express itself as feelings of emptiness, sadness, loneliness, disconnection, fear or anxiety, confusion, or meaninglessness. You might feel like you are floating through life without a map or destination. Alternatively, you might feel stuck or frozen within yourself. My goal is to work with you to help you define and understand these feelings, create the links and meanings of them, and ultimately to get you back moving on your life's roadmap.

Though each person’s experience is unique, a common thread is that not knowing where emotions come from adds to distress. My hope is to provide a nonjudgmental place to better understand your emotions so that you can gain a sense of control in creating a meaningful life. A meaningful life may involve feeling comfortable sitting alone with your thoughts, the past becoming less haunting, more effective communication in relationships, feeling productive, or something else. Whatever you are working towards, I am here to support you.
