Clarity, Freedom, and Inner Peace are our natural birthright as human beings regardless of our circumstances and situation. Yet if we look at our life experience, powerful stressful emotions may plague our life either openly or quietly. We do the best we can, yet don't know another way of dealing with ourselves in a way that supports our vitality and freedom. What is needed is Awareness and Understanding. If you think you are experiencing anxiety/panic, depression, anger issues, reactivity showing up in your relationships, or fear taking over your life, I specialize in you.

Sometimes life brings us challenges that we feel unprepared for, leaving us feeling blind-sided and struggling to find our way. We may even find that our usual ways of coping aren’t working, and our usual support people do not understand us. Life can feel so lonely even when we are not alone. Are you experiencing anxiety, stress, or sadness in your life? Adjusting to a major life transition? I can help you, support you on your journey. Together we will work through the challenges that life has sent your way, so that you can achieve the peace of mind and confidence you are searching for.

By understanding behaviors, emotions and ideas that contribute to distress, you can regain a sense of control over life's events.
I believe that therapy should be a safe place where you can share your most private thoughts and difficulties without fear of judgment. My therapeutic style is empathic, creative and collaborative. I provide a flexible, individualized approach to therapy while using research supported therapy techniques and tools. Together we will identify your goals for therapy and I will help you to increase your self-awareness and develop skills to help you achieve those goals.
I see therapy as an endeavor in which you and I work to explore obstacles in the way of your happiness. Painful relationships or critical self-judgments can impair your resiliency and motivation to effect the changes you'd like to see in your life. I can offer you a way to think about yourself, in an environment of trust, which will help you to fully inhabit and direct your life. Depression and anxiety, stress at work and at home can challenge the core of our lives. I will work with you to resolve these issues and achieve your goals.
Finally! This virus may be slowing down. But having been indoors for almost two years has been driving you CRAZY! You feel less connected and more isolated. Your partner isn't communicating. How did your relationship end up here? Every discussion deteriorates into another bickering episode. Impatience and frustration take over. Where's the listening and compromise? Trying to fall asleep is getting impossible. You keep remembering those shouted words being hurled at you: ruminating in your mind. With so much longing and unmet needs, you are drifting further and further apart. You don't want to go this alone.
Choosing which therapist is right for you can be a tough decision, so to help, here's a little bit about me. I'm warm, compassionate, and intuitive, setting up an environment that is comfortable and non-judgmental. Together we will work to explore and process concerns. As this happens, we are able to peel layers and gain insight into these issues so that you can understand what needs to be done to create effective change.
