I have over ten years experience working with individuals experiencing substance use disorders, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues.
Psychological health is much more than the absence of problems and mental illness. Even when things seem to be going well we may still feel that there is something missing and that our lives lack the happiness, purpose, and vitality that we desire. My approach begins with the identification of your values. This becomes the foundation of our work together. We then explore thoughts and feelings that get in the way of living a more meaningful and satisfying life and replace them with strategies that are more values consistent and effective in the pursuit of a more satisfying life.

I have experience working with people struggling with substance use issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, stress, relationship issues, and more.
My work with individuals begins with establishing an emotionally safe space in which we can explore what brings you into therapy. We then tailor our work to your specific issues and needs, be they contemporary stressors or long standing vestiges of the past -- or both. We may discover core conflicts, psychic remnants of past relationships and experiences, that contribute to your current symptoms or show up in your life as self-defeating patterns in your relationships. Re-working these past struggles can help release you from feeling emotionally trapped, so that you have greater freedom and authorship in your life.

Difficult life challenges can make us feel like we are in a battle with our own mind or body. You may be struggling with intrusive anxiety, traumatic memories, or chronic illness. And your methods of coping are not serving you - you feel so locked in avoidance, suppression, or distraction that you can’t recognize yourself or what you stand for. Your life feels centered on avoiding pain instead of your most important values.
