Do you feel like you are constantly at war with your body?

This means two things: (1) I will collaborate with and empower you to find what’s true for you in a beautifully diverse and confusing world and (2) we will build a warm & genuine relationship as the container for healing.
Welcome! I'm glad you're here. Life (relationships, family, work, friends, school, illness, and more) can knock us down causing us to feel discouraged, depressed, anxious, disappointed, confused, hopeless, alone, not heard and many more. Whatever struggle or conflict you are facing, you are not alone. Life has many stages and transitions, which is normal, but if you're here, you probably don't feel so "normal". Therapy may feel scary, but most of my clients say therapy is liberating and life changing. I create a space where nothing is off limits, there are no judgements and every emotion is valid.

We receive constant messages that if you are not feeling happy something is wrong. But is this fair? Over 50% of us will suffer with a mental health condition in our lifetime! This suggests suffering is not pathological, but rather a universal experience. The fact you are human guarantees you will experience pain. Sadly, sometimes our well-intended efforts to avoid pain can unintentionally lead to more suffering. Across time we can lose touch with what matters to us most and our quality of life goes down. We can become stuck in an unnecessary battle with ourselves, and all the while life continues to go by.
"You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them" -Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter. We all have weaknesses we can make into strengths. Life is about finding the things we can control and focusing on making changes in those areas. My goal is to guide my clients in the direction of what they have control of and help them make the positive changes in those areas.

Every person wants happiness and contentment, but we also face challenges that leaves us confused, or even stuck. I realize it may not always be easy coming to a therapist, but personal growth, empowerment, and feeling whole are wonderful gifts to yourself. My hope is to foster trust by providing a safe environment to make sense of thoughts, feelings and pain. I love what I do and feel honored to gain your trust and hear about life, joys, and struggles.
