Everyone experiences wounds in life, be it loss, illness, abuse, a difficult relationship, neglect, or any other overwhelming issue. Sometimes even experiences that "should" bring joy like graduating, starting a new job, marriage, or having children can render us feeling like we are in crisis - or stuck. I work with clients to help them get unstuck from feelings of anxiety, depression, and emotional reactivity. When we can identify the patterns that keep us in pain, we can begin to develop new ways to cope and manage the stress of our lives.

Would you like to free yourself of unhelpful patterns that lead to stress, conflict, or withdrawal from life? Are you feeling challenged in managing fear, sadness or anger? Having the courage to admit things aren’t going well is the first step to changing them. My goal is to help people maximize their potential for rich, full and meaningful lives. My approach to therapy supports clients in being less identified with habitual thought patterns and feelings that keep them stuck in behaviors that no longer work. In my practice, I help people learn to be less reactive and more compassionate towards themselves and others.

I believe creating an environment where everyone can feel safe and heard is vital, and cultivating a therapeutic alliance to be alongside individuals as a nonjudgmental support in the journey to wholeness and independence. I listen for unique needs and preferences and utilize an eclectic and integrated approach to working with the whole person. With empathy and compassion I will also ask challenging questions to explore ideas, new ways of thinking and understanding, and guide intuitive discovery for meaningful change.

For many people, the daily experience of anxiety and depression can feel like "just the way things are." Sometimes, we've lived for so long with it, we don't remember what it's like to live without it. The stress caused by depression and anxiety can affect nearly every part of our lives, including our physical health, our relationships, our careers. Traumatic events or recurring "micro traumas" like bullying or emotional abuse can feel overwhelming. Things can feel even worse if we've been to doctors and therapists before, and nothing seems to have worked.
