"I just can't seem to make it right with my wife, husband or kids." Despite your best efforts, it seems like you're always getting rejected or upsetting your loved ones. It's a battle you know you can't win. You have the best of intentions, and know you're a good person, but something always seems to go awry. The attempt to share how you feel ends up in a blow out, spiraling out of control. Peace, connection, hugs, laughs- these are the things you seek and miss the most. You're desperate to find a way to share with others in an authentic way, but that also keeps the peace.

Asking for help may be one of the hardest and bravest things we ever do. Whatever it is that you are seeking help for, you deserve healing and empowerment. I am passionate about providing an empathic and authentic space for you to explore what is leading you to seek help, while guiding you in expanding on the knowledge and skills you already possess. I believe that no one knows your life better than you do, and therefore respect your role in the therapeutic relationship. I utilize person-centered and strengths-based approaches, along with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness practices, to help you reach your goals.

Something isn’t right. You've known It & now it's nagging you. You have an idea of who you want to be in your life - a friend, a lover, happy, have an overall sense of meaning. You're not exactly sure what to do and then the thought "I will figure it out", comes in to calm you almost immediately back to procrastinating in its usual forms. You have tools. Maybe you meditate, do yoga. But when the feelings of Self-Doubt and Inadequacy act up, they take you for a Shameful ride through what could have been & will not be, resulting in "if only I were better at ___." Pushing you once again, into quiet acceptance of the way things are.

I love the work I do as a psychotherapist. I see myself as a healer and guide. With you as my client, we navigate the challenges and perhaps, traumas of your past. Being guided through the changes you want to make, I offer empathy and compassion, knowing that self-exploration that leads to desired change can be a challenge, and sometimes the challenge becomes too great to want to continue. It is a given that I listen with in the moment “presence”, and I believe that this “presence” is the key to healing and growth. I welcome the opportunity to work with you as your guide and co-healer on your path of growth, healing and change.

Inside another day of the same vicious cycle, feeling “not good enough.” The anxiety is mounting and you feel like you're suffocating slowly. Depression is weighing you down to the point where you don't want to leave your bed, fearing yet another day. Being in your own skin is intolerable and you're barely able to keep your head above water. You’ve done everything you thought would make you happy but happiness still seems unattainable.

The decision to begin therapy can be scary, but the potential benefits are lasting and profound. Emphasizing the importance of mental health wellness is an important aspect to the work I do. Most clients seek therapy looking for answers, while others focus on the process of finding these answers within themselves. Therapy is a way to process your thoughts and feelings in a safe environment. It provides you with a space to express your inner thoughts. It also gives you an opportunity to have your own personal sounding board that has your best interest in mind.
