Sometimes it feels like we don't have control of our own stories-- our love stories, or maybe even the stories of our entire lives. Our problems take over to the point where they're running the show, not us! How can we claim our rightful place as the authors and editors of our own narratives? Well, in life we are a part of many different systems-- maybe a couple, family, or certainly society. Humans team up naturally, as it helps us accomplish more than we could alone. But problems can arise that change the way we interact with the other parts. In other words, we start feeling unhappy, or acting in unhealthy ways.

In-person/online sessions! There are days that you want to get away from your child and it kills you to feel this way. You sometimes think of the life you had prior to having children. You were less exhausted then. You didn’t think parenting would be this hard. Your child is having constant meltdowns and becomes upset over the littlest things. This happens almost daily. You have tried everything and they never seem to be happy no matter what you do. You feel like you have failed as a parent. You are worried that this is your life now and nothing is going to change. You feel helpless.

My speciality is working with individuals experiencing issues with stress, anxiety, depression, addiction, over-eating, grief and trauma. My approach is to first identify coping strategies to deal with the current stress and emotional strain by focusing on strengths and existing coping mechanisms. Together, we sort out the underlying problems and identify more effective coping strategies to deal with every day stressors and overwhelming emotional reactions to current and past trauma.

Narrative Therapists

There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert.
