I've found that having a dedicated space to unpack your heart with someone who unconditionally supports your growth & has a skill set/capacity to do so is priceless. Therapy isn't just for healing trauma, working with a disorder but is a preventative gift (to you and your loved ones).

It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.

I meet my clients where they are at, and begin by building on the relationship where we can focus on the parts that seem to be holding one back from living their most authentic life. Every one has their own unique journey, and I believe that in a strong therapeutic relationship, healing, growth, and transformation is possible. Therapy allows for one to gain insight and awareness around one's patterns of behavior. Let us meet together to see if we are a good fit.

I have a curiosity in learning about people's stories, the healing power of hope, and bring compassion to the experience of a life out of balance. Therapy can help us develop wise responses to reach our goals and find solutions to life's problems. There are many reasons to seek therapy. Therapy creates a container to explore and attend to the difficulties in our lives. Therapy supports lasting change through awareness. Everyone has the potential for change: to heal, listen and feel understood-- I want to work on building that community by supporting the exploration of fulfillment, courage and wisdom.

I see therapy as a powerful process because of the collaborative relationship between the therapist and the client. When a person chooses to begin the therapeutic process, they enter into a safe space in which they can begin to free themselves from that which has become constricted or blocked in their life. In this process, I offer companionship, interest, support, and alliance. Your life narrative becomes our focus, with sustained curiosity, attention and empathy. As a client, you then can become more curious, attentive, and empathic towards yourself.

For many people it is hard to ask for help when it comes to sorting out the challenges of life. Making the decision to seek assistance from a therapist is courageous and can be rewarded with a safe, warm and supportive therapy environment. I work with people who often feel they are in crisis, experience anxiety or depression, have a low sense of self and struggle with the relationships in their lives but are motivated to gain insight and skills that are necessary to make lasting positive changes.

Something bad happened. Whether it happened recently or years ago, you find yourself still bothered by it today. Memories of it pop into your mind against your wishes. When you come across something that reminds you of this past experience, you get really upset. There is a constant feeling of being on edge, like you can never truly relax or let your guard down. The thing that happened is affecting your life much more than you want it to. There is a part of you that believes you might not have to feel this way. A part that believes therapy could help you feel better and find more peace in your life. That part of you is right.

Pain is inevitable but suffering doesn't have to be. Suffering arises when anxiety rules us. We are anxious about facing our fears so we avoid. We are anxious about letting others get close so we isolate. Psychotherapy offers a doorway out of these loops. Yes, life throws difficulties and tragedies at us. But it is our internal reactions to circumstances and relationships that hinders our ability to thrive (instead of merely coping). Self-empowerment comes from having the courage to face our internal world in all its messiness and complexity. As a therapist my mission is to come alongside you on that sacred inward journey.
