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.

Do you feel like you are in the same relationships all the time no matter who you are with? Perhaps experiencing attachment to unhealthy patterns and/or people? Maybe you had an unpleasant medical experience and now fear care. Perhaps you look in the mirror and don't feel your best. Maybe you have difficulty saying "no" and lean towards "people-pleasing" tendencies. Because people would be mad at you, right? Do you have difficulty with boundaries? Maybe some FOMO or isolating in your sweats watching Netflix but you want more social interactions? If you answered yes to any or all of these, you are in the right place!

During a typical week, it can be difficult to know how we’re feeling and what's bothering us. Our attention has to be diverted to so many external things, that we barely have time to understand what’s going on internally. All we know is that we’re not feeling great and are mentally struggling in some way. Or we know exactly what’s bothering us, but have no idea where to go from there. Therapy is the 1 hour a week where we can focus on those mental/emotional aspects of life. Therapy is the place where we gain understanding of where we want to go in life, what may be getting in our way, and what we can do to help ourselves.

Parenting adolescents is challenging. As your teen gets older, they may show signs of struggling in some or many areas of their lives. You may notice personality changes, or they no longer have the same interests or no longer seem motivated. You’ve read books, tried different strategies and tried to communicate with your teen, but there has not been sustained change. You know that your teen has potential, but how do you help them find it? Looking for outside help, can be a scary step, with many questions. Will someone be able to connect with my teen, am I able to trust that person/will my teen be able to?

Empathic. Easygoing. Humorist. You create happiness for others, but you struggle to find your own bliss. The mask of being the happy-go-lucky friend is tiring. It's beginning to wear you down. You're always expected to bring the jokes. But, it feels like your pain is fake & unworthy of being heard. Putting the sarcasm & punchlines aside can be foreign & painful when you're so used to always bringing the wit to the table. You deserve to give yourself permission to prioritize your needs & set boundaries. Now is the time to heal the pain you've been avoiding. I will help you find joy again with some laughs along the way.
