You often feel like you're shouting into the wind, and no one is listening. What will you have to do to be heard and respected? It helps to get out of the echo chamber of your own head and find someone safe to bounce ideas off of. This first step is truly the hardest, but it pays off quickly! Reaching out for help can be scary, and procrastination so easy to justify - but taking that first step, and resolving to change your life, starts paying off right away. When you're clear about what you're thinking and feeling - and why - it's much easier to know what to do next. Therapy can help you do that, and you won't feel so alone.

If you are struggling during this global crisis, you are not alone. Maybe the pandemic has triggered feelings of vulnerability and anxiety you’ve never experienced, or maybe it has amplified feelings of loneliness and depression you’ve been living with for some time. Social distancing, isolation, role transitions, and loss have disrupted our sense of control and stability. Whatever you are going through right now is understandable and valid. I want to help you reclaim balance and order in your life. I want to help you tap into your inner strength to function better and feel happier.

Psychotherapy offers a wonderful opportunity to discover more about who we are and what it is that we want. Therapy should help us to find compassion for ourselves, to have patience with the unresolved and to find the courage to live more fully in the moment. This work offers us a chance to grow and evolve and be graced by the ability to view the world with less distortion, denial and illusion, and live in the freedom that comes with seeing things the way they really are.

I approach therapy with the understanding that our mind and body are not separated but aspects of a unified whole. Our emotions and life history are held and manifest in the body and change begins when we acknowledge and work with our full being. Through a process that goes beyond talk, I help my clients bring attention to how their concerns effect how they breathe, feel, move, think and express themselves, as I support them in gradually exploring the underlying emotional terrain.
