Being a human is inherently difficult; we experience various types of loss, trauma, and stress while trying to manage our relationships, lives, and sense of self. This can feel overwhelming, tiring. Whether you are a couple struggling to understand why you can’t seem to communicate or an individual trying to figure out their place in the world, I see therapy as a place to fully explore who/why we are, as much as why/who we want to be. I welcome honesty and openness about all aspects of who you are.

Emotional pain can be overwhelming at times...even crippling. It can isolate you, making you feel different from everyone you know. Perhaps you have recently experienced a life altering encounter. Maybe vestiges of the past, keep showing up and are attempting to choke out your present life. Or maybe you just need to talk so you can "figure things out" or make sense of it all. Sound familiar? If so, I am here for you. Life hurts and I want to help you heal. You don't have to carry this all by yourself.

**NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** So many of us struggle through the plot twists in life and find loneliness and depression, separation from others, and stress along the way. The stages and changes we encounter in our relationships, work lives, and personal experiences are easier when faced with support. Sometimes the people in our lives are not the right people to offer this support, and sometimes we prefer to keep them out of it. An outsider, completely dedicated to your goals and growth, your exploration and journey may be exactly what you need.

Openness, curiosity, empathy, compassion, and creativity are personal attributes that shape the type of clinician that I strive to be. These characteristics have been helpful in allowing me to connect with clients and build strong therapeutic relationships, which I believe is a crucial ingredient to successful treatment. I don't believe people are "sick," but rather they get "stuck" in a pattern of interacting with others and the world in a way that no longer works for them. If you have been feeling stuck, unmotivated, worried or stressed, unable to enjoy life, or unsatisfied with you relationships, I can help.
