Therapy with me will have you leaving my office with tangible ways, for you or you and your loved ones, to facilitate changes in what you want in your life from the very first session. I will challenge you hard but with compassion. I enjoy helping people develop an enthusiasm for the process of self-discovery and healing. I make authentic contact with people help them cultivate a taste for their own Truths while making space to grieve the loss of old ways or relating to people and the world around them. I see starting therapy is a sign of intelligence.

People often think about entering therapy because they are ready to make a change. In a non judgmental environment, we will explore areas in your life where you want to grow and over time, develop tools to address the challenges you face and gain a deeper understanding about yourself. I provide a therapeutic environment that is safe and confidential in which we talk about and understand your emotional reactions to life situations that cause you to feel stuck and unhappy. I will work collaboratively with you to identify unproductive ways of coping and help replace them with healthier ones.

Life can feel overwhelming, confusing and difficult. Relationships can be challenging. Change and loss can lead to uncertainty. All of this can lead to feelings of anxiety and depression. I help people make sense of their experience, navigate through difficult times and increase their self-awareness to achieve a greater sense of purpose, freedom, and choice in their lives. The therapeutic relationship is a collaborative space where you can work to understand and resolve your feelings, explore thoughts and behaviors that may have you feeling “stuck” in your life and identify relationship patterns that interfere with your well-being.

Therapy is a process of healing, growth, and change. Changing patterns that aren't working and creating positive change, while feeling more happiness in your relationships, work, family, life, and self. Counseling provides an opportunity to discuss struggles, decrease stress, increase understanding of self and others, find solutions, and create positive change. I incorporate constructive insights, guidance, and empathy, along with analytical feedback when appropriate. Part of our work together includes uncovering behavior patterns, thinking patterns, and maladaptive beliefs, so that you can identify and work through the challenges you are experiencing.

These ways of being have a direct impact on different facets of a persons life. Do you have difficulty with connection and communication in relationships? Are you struggling with family dynamics? Have you experienced difficult or traumatic events? Has life taken an unexpected turn? Do you feel limited by your circumstances or by your past? Do you seek purpose and meaning?

People may think you are excelling on the outside but feel anxious, sad, or angry. You feel like two people live inside you, one that lashes at those you care about and one that feels guilty after. You spend your weekends trying to unwind through happy hours and dating, but once the thrill fades, you feel drained again. You may wonder if your use of alcohol, the internet, social media, or video games gets in the way of you finding your purpose and living your best life. You find injustice impedes your ability to express and truly empower yourself.

You had a kickass life before having kids. And you still do. But kids! They're so much. You've lost some of your spark. You find yourself trying to control little things hoping to ease some of your stress and anxiety. You keep giving and giving and giving and giving. You're so compassionate, well educated, woke, successful and pretty happy and grateful (at least it looks that way on instagram). But, you're also stressed and sort of lonely and looking for more inner peace and meaning. It's all really confusing.

You want to help - but it feels like no matter what you do, you end up drained, depleted, or exhausted. With so much suffering in the world, it's hard to figure out where your boundaries are, or what you even need. How can you have needs, when everyone else is suffering so much? You might even find yourself in relationships where you feel used or taken advantage of - instead of mutually loved, nourished, and uplifted. You may identify as an empath, artist, educator, or healer - or just as someone deeply affected by this world and who wants to help. But somehow, you keep losing yourself along the way.

Do you feel marginalized, dismissed and judged by social norms? Are you a part of a community that outsiders do not understand (vegan, LGBT, veteran). Perhaps these thoughts are competing with what you truly know about yourself. The anxiety and depression setting in are natural responses, but you deserve to be understood, respected and believed. Your thoughts are valid. You want to rebuild that self-esteem and find a meaningful community without being marginalized. You are ready to silence the naysayers and fully embrace yourself surrounded by a meaningful community. Do you want to feel understood by someone who really gets it?

*I currently have openings for online sessions* To everyone around you, it looks like you've "got it together." But deep inside, you feel like an impostor. Even though your life looks great on the surface, you feel chronically anxious, as if it could all fall apart at any moment. You'd like to be more authentic, but you worry about what would happen if other people knew the "real" you. Sometimes, you wonder if you've spent so much time faking it that you've lost sight of your true self altogether.
