I offer a soft place to land in what can be a confusing world. I'll invite you to slow down, tune in, and explore your quieter and wiser self. It is human to struggle because, let's face it--life is tough. Feeling overwhelmed, trapped, fearful, angry, and sad is par for the course and the result of living in a fast-paced, stressful environment. This reality coupled with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, and/or addiction can sap our resources. We can end up loosing sight of what is important to us and feel a dampening of our spirit.

I enjoy working collaboratively with adults and teens to create a comforting and safe space where insight into inner processes can begin to unfold. When we understand and have compassion for our particular reactions to things, we begin to live in a state of greater peace and become able to connect to our deepest and most unique resources. Learning to calm and soothe our body’s response to stress can be life changing and enables us to harness our greatest potential.

Your mind replays the day's interactions with others, criticizing yourself, and reflecting on how people have hurt you. You're desperate for a break from the constant anxiety, but don't know how to find the peace that you want so badly.

Often pain, anxiety, discontent or depression in our lives is telling us something. Our emotions are eloquent communicators. Through the process of therapy we can learn to utilize this information. With self exploration and new insights, we can consciously create richer, more meaningful, fulfilling lives. Even in the best of times, people have recognized the benefits of addressing, through counseling, the difficulties that limit their personal and work lives. In these very challenging times, familiar coping strategies may no longer be working and the insight gained through therapy can be even more valuable. In a safe, respectful, confidential environment, you can learn how to build more effective ways to relate others, reduce stress, and live more authentically.

I understand that life's transitions often come with the obvious changes in ones perspective, in ones relationships, and in ones lifestyle, but transitions also come with more hidden emotional changes. These usually surface as sleepless nights, fights with people you care about, mood instability, and a feeling of sadness or dissatisfaction with life. On your own, it is difficult to untangle the complex puzzle that underlies these ongoing issues and acknowledge these emotional changes. Together we can uncover the root of your emotional challenges using emotionally focused therapy in a compassionate and supportive environment.
