Every person has their own unique process of healing and growth. Psychotherapy is a valuable pathway towards finding balence and wholeness in your life. As your therapist, I approach my work with profound respect for your individual nature, values, and beliefs. Psychotherapy is essentially a collaborative process, in which we work together to explore the difficulties you're facing and to find solutions that will work for you. When the essence of your 'self' is truly understood, real possibilities for meaningful change can emerge. My goal is to support your journey as you move towards a more fulfilling and authentic life.

Being a human is challenging. Anxiety can get in the way of enjoying life, relationships, and feeling present. Many people feel anxious, stuck, worried, or unsure of how to move forward in their lives or relationships. They often think they are alone. Anxiety, sadness, guilt, loneliness, confusion, or general feelings of hopelessness and overall stress may be bothering you, and although our lives may look successful on the outside, they often don't feel so good on the inside. Maybe you don't react the way you wish you would or you find yourself worrying about the future or the past.

Past stories can create painful realities that can affect the present life. It can be extremely easy to beat ourselves up for things we do/did to survive pain. Now... imagine what it would look like to transform that old story into an empowering new beginning? A quote that truly resonates with my work is from Rumi: “The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” Whether you're seeking therapy or life coaching to resolve trauma or looking to process challenges that arise throughout your day to day life, I can help find understanding through empowerment and insight so you can live the life you are determined to live.

I believe that our lives are built on relationships. Be it between parent and child, partner and partner, supervisor and employee, or peer and peer, relationships can be healing and rewarding, but they can also be painful and difficult. We all know the stress and heartache that can come from a relationship in distress and we all know that desperate, painful feeling of wanting relief. Helping people find their way through these difficulties and back to each other is one of the most rewarding and exciting things I do. I specialize in helping families connect and thrive.

This defines my view of being a therapist: "One of the greatest privileges of the human being is to become a midwife to the birth of the soul of another person. This is what therapy is about: helping people retrieve what has been lost to them, wakening and bringing home their fundamental wholesomeness” (from Plato's Symposium). John O’Donohue continues: “Therapists are like poets: they draw on the power of words in the profoundly creative work of bringing people fully alive to themselves, awakening in them the human capacity for divine imagination that ‘dreams our completion’.”

Humans have a biological need to feel safe and worthy of love. In a world that repeatedly invalidates sensitivity and vulnerability, it’s not surprising that many of us struggle to feel happy, attain goals and find fulfilling romantic relationships. Some of us turn to substances, while others over function. If we are parents, we may find that we accidently repeat hurtful dynamics with our own children. Suddenly, or not so suddenly, we find ourselves struggling with guilt, shame and hopelessness. I am here to provide a warm and non-judgmental space, so that we may explore the strength and resilience you already posess.
