You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom.

In my 7 years of practice as a psychotherapist, I have worked with people who are survivors of extreme trauma, people who have experienced past abuse, people who are suicidal, and people with severe and chronic mental illness. I have supported trans people through the process of coming out, gender transition, and accessing gender affirming health care. I have worked with many people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, nonbinary, and gender fluid. I am myself a member of the LGBTQ community. I look forward to hearing from you and learning about your story. Please email or call me to set up a free phone consultation.

It takes courage to go to therapy, especially when you feel stuck. That is why I appreciate the importance of a safe, nurturing and non-judgemental environment. There you can explore who you are, what is important to you and to repair what is keeping you from moving forward, whether it is depression/anxiety, relationship issues or an eating disorder. Once you have self-awareness, strategies and support, you will be able to make better choices and be the person you want to be.

I believe that most of the time we work through life's ups and downs on our own. But, sometimes life becomes difficult to manage. Changes and challenges can become overwhelming and increase feelings of vulnerability, stress or anxiety. Other times, we just feel stuck. Therapy can be a helpful step towards feeling better. I enjoy working with clients to help them regain balance and perspective. We'll work together at your pace to explore feelings and experiences while challenging what may no longer be effective. I'll provide your extra support, guidance or motivation in a warm, safe environment.

I specialize in treating addictions to drugs, alcohol, and behaviors such as gambling, sex, Internet, and eating. I also address underlying issues such as anxiety, depression, and relationship problems. I work with adults of all ages individually as well as in groups. My approach to therapy is an interpersonal, client-centered approach. In other words, the client's own treatment goals are of central importance. While issues that initially bring the client into treatment tend to be the primary area of focus, the therapeutic relationship that develops with me is available to be used toward the client's therapeutic goals.

Life is complicated and seldom straightforward. We are often left facing challenges that are surprising and difficult to navigate. It may be a new role, a disappointment at work, a problem in a relationship, or some lasting echoes from the past that still show up, that causes us to feel anxious, angry, sad, confused and “stuck”. We try our best to manage by using coping strategies that turn out to be more problematic than helpful. We are then left thinking, what happened? Will I ever feel like my old self? Why can't I just get over this? If you are anxious, struggling to focus, overwhelmed by work or family, I am trained to help
