It is during challenging times such as these when one is often afforded the greatest opportunity for growth, transformation, and healing. If you’re feeling lost, broken, or like you've exhausted your resources to cope with life, it may be a good time to start therapy. Whether you’re depressed, overwhelmed, or struggling in relationship, my goal is to use my seventeen plus years of experience as a psychotherapist to help you relieve suffering and arrive at a deeper understanding and appreciation for yourself. Pain is sometimes inevitable in life, but suffering need not be.

Seeking professional help for yourself, your child or your family takes courage. Not only are we taught that we shouldn't need help or tell strangers our business, but it’s hard to imagine what we’ll be like if we change our old habits. Many of the adults who have made progress working with me have experienced trauma, the impacts of oppressive social biases, or both. They have adapted and survived, but they are not thriving. They may feel stuck, or they feel the need to hide or silence parts of themselves to succeed in relationships. Younger clients may have similar issues along with defiance, withdrawal or other troubling behavior.

Many are calling this an unprecedented time -- quarantined in our homes, fearful of the well-being of our families and loved ones and facing changes and circumstances we may have never imagined possible. If you are feeling disoriented, unsteady and in shock, you are not alone. As we grapple with the spread of illness in our communities, it is a time of both personal and collective upheaval, a time that may "shake us at our roots" and pierce our hearts, but also deepen our humanity and resilience. As your therapist, I will be a compassionate, respectful and trust-worthy guide, to help you navigate and bridge the months ahead.

Just listening and asking you "How does that make you feel" is not my approach. We will get work done and you'll get tools to use in your day-to-day life. I'm authentic in sessions, which helps clients relax and creates a collaborative partnership rather than a hierarchy. Working with people from different backgrounds, cultures, gender identities, and sexualities, I acknowledge the need for different approaches and work with you to find the most engaging methods. I am very active in sessions and keep a relaxed atmosphere as we collaborate.

Do you feel stuck no matter how hard you try to move ahead? You're certainly not alone. It can be tough making change, especially while sheltering-in-place. Over the past decade, I've come to learn again and again that there's a legitimate reason why we don't move forward to fulfillment. Instead we cycle in discomfort, anxiety, sadness, fear, mistrust, etc. Once you really understand what is causing the discomfort (or that feeling of being stuck), lasting change can occur. This process is unique for each person. I'd love to help you.

I work with people seeking therapy to address stagnation, frustration or dissatisfaction. Whether feeling stuck or overwhelmed, usually we're in pursuit of something. When stuck: our striving is often a reiteration. We might be relying on our learned, now-automatic ways - to express ourselves, be close to others, weigh a decision, or assert what we want. But sometimes, preserving our familiar underlying attitude or belief while attempting action or change can create discord, confusion, stuck-ness. When overwhelmed: our pursuit holds such urgency, we need help to slow down, ease the pressure, adjust more gradually.
