We all have different seasons in our lives where we may feel a pull or a need for change and growth. My hope is to help those on their individual journeys find a place that feels good for them and their families. I believe that everyone deserves to feel safe, heard and validated and thus I provide that in my therapy room, and help other family members develop that for one another.

My ideal client is struggling with pleasure, sexual desire and arousal, intimacy, communication, and confidence. They struggle to identify the influences that impact their lives, their needs and desires, and processing the emotions keeping them from the life they deserve. They don't feel like they're in control of their own stories and want a chance to be a part of writing them.

On the outside you have it all together, and it seems like no one knows you're struggling. But on the inside, you feel overwhelmed, detached, stuck, burnout, stressed and depleted. It takes tremendous courage to start letting someone else in. I value your trust and start by actively listening to what it feels like for you on the inside. We will explore the different parts of you longing to be heard and seen, and will also support you learning to trust your own wisdom and the ways your body may have been communicating with you all along. Whatever may be the reason for disconnection from yourself, there's always a way back.

“What is wrong with me?” you ask yourself for the umpteenth time today. That voice in your head never lets up. “Why do I even bother?” “I’m such a hot mess!” You try so hard to be perfect, please everyone, and never let people down, but it’s not enough. So you turn on yourself, repeatedly falling into destructive cycles of overcompensation and self-sabotage. It extends to every aspect of your life. Your last few relationships have all fizzled out before they even got started. No matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to make anything work in your life. You can't even put it into words really. You just feel empty. You feel stuck.

Welcome! I'm glad you're here. Whether you've tried therapy before or you're brand new to the process, taking these first steps can be nerve-wracking. Because of this, I believe that the safe, trusting environment and relationship built between therapist and client is at the core of this work. What’s most important to me is that you feel comfortable being yourself in therapy, and my goal is that you always feel heard, supported, and accepted. Therapy is different for everybody, and I want this process to be unique and personal to you and your needs.

I understand how hard you're working to make things better; to "fix it" on your own. It can be a lonely place to carry pain and sadness by yourself and feeling that you can't talk to anyone about what is really going on in your life. That is what therapy is for. Therapy offers a safe and accepting space where you can explore and understand your emotions in a way that heals. Transforming negative life experiences into a source of strength, resilience and self-compassion.
