Our work together is so much more than just talking. You deserve new skills and tools so that you can get out there and have the best life possible. With all the stress and pressure, it's too easy to get depressed, anxious, and Burned Out. This will be a time that you feel heard, and understood, but also inspired. Sometimes we need to know what to do to feel better. I am on a mission to make sure you get what you need. With EFT, EMDR, Hypnosis, CBT, and other techniques, you will learn as you heal and grow. Don't stay stuck any longer. Today is the day for change. I look forward to connecting!
I believe each person has the ability to find the answers within themself and my focus is to help you get to that core part safely and comfortably. Understanding the past that has contributed to the non-functional behavior helps, however, eventually you need to deal with the here-and-now situation that brought you into therapy. This is what helps you to understand what keeps you from achieving what you truly desire.
Sitting in a rocking chair, rocking back and forth, may feel relaxing but I believe that life without therapy is like sitting in that rocking chair, rocking back-and-forth but never actually making any progress or going anywhere. I feel that everyone can benefit from therapy at some point during a lifetime, especially now during this unprecedented time. This pandemic has changed the way we live and has brought new levels of fear, isolation and hardships to many. Navigating through these days are difficult, why do it alone when you can get through it with a therapist who will support you along the way?

Life is too short to let the everyday burdens we face create turmoil, and gain control over our emotions. Our feelings can control us or we can learn to control them. A situation, person, place, or thing only has the power to control our feelings...if we let it. It is our responsibility (and only ours) to control our feelings and behavior. Thus, we can find true contentment and serenity.
Feeling stuck or frustrated with specific life stressors? Do you find yourself not happy with where you are at in life? Do you find little to no motivation to engage in previously enjoyed activities? By engaging in a therapeutic alliance, I strive to help others make changes towards living a happier, more constructed version of themselves.

Clients who work with me are tired of experiencing life with anxiety and depression; they recognize that a change is necessary, and they're ready to engage. Their goals may include the need to experience joy, hope, love, respect and success. Often, they struggle building successful close and intimate relationships, communicating their needs, and/or or achieving academic and career success - in other words, life goals.
