Like many of us, you’re probably someone who has made valiant efforts to change your life, but because of what's been going on, you're having a hard time doing so.
Destigmatizing mental health is one of the biggest challenges we face in todays society. Many individuals are reluctant to seek treatment due to fear of how they may be perceived by their family, friends, and/or any person that plays a significant role in their life. Negative thinking and negative emotions combined with daily stressors is almost certain to lead you down an unhealthy path.

Life challenges are a normal process. While they are personal and can often be transformative, some can be stressful. Psychotherapy may help you cope better with these changes. I respect the importance of creating and maintaining the therapeutic bond; helping clients discover and refine their personal strengths, identify appropriate goals, and work towards a path to wellness. It is important to have a mindful and empathetic listener, able to provide patience and understanding, and that is my personal responsibility if you wish to engage in this process.
Finding the right therapist who really gets you can be a challenge! I am happy to talk with you and discover together if we might be a good fit. In therapy we will look at the repetitive patterns that keep you stuck and with a moment-to-moment awareness help you let go of what is holding you back from being who you want to be. This awareness naturally opens a new possibility for feeling and thinking differently. Starting therapy can be scary, but it is also a courageous step and something we do together. Whether you are new to therapy or returning after a break I can help you gain experiential insight to move in a new direction.

Times seem to be more unpredictable than ever before; with the curveballs that life may bring us, it is important to be intuitively connected with one's soul, mind, and body in an effort to become and remain grounded.

Every client is different and I believe that the healing process should be a collaborative one between therapist and client, one where the client feels empowered to be an active participant in the change that they seek for themselves. Progress looks like a client being able to not only be more self-aware of themselves but amenable of how they respond to triggers that, in the past, would have elicited a very different reaction. An ideal client is one that is willing to be their own change agent. My role is to not serve as their fairy godmother waving a wand, but rather an accountability partner and guide on their therapeutic journey.
