Asking for help can be difficult. We often think "I should be able to handle my problems myself". However, everyone needs support at some point in their lives. A major crisis, a life transition, loss, job stress, relationship problems, emotional needs, our past interfering with our present, or everyday stressors become too much to deal with alone. We forget our strengths and become isolated, depressed, angry, or make poor choices.

*Not currently accepting new clients* I believe the most important principles of therapy are humor, compassion and education. I am committed to helping you experience positive change, improve relationships, and gain a greater sense of personal strength and growth so you can better enjoy each day. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?

Life is messy but good therapy ends and should not last a lifetime. I want to hear your story, just as it is, no edits, no additions, no glossy finish. Lasting change requires work, it isn't always easy, but when we avoid our stories, that's when they define us. No matter what your "it" is. Asking for help means believing you are more than your struggles. The first step is to show up and say, "I don't want to do this alone anymore" Change does happen and experience matters- both yours and mine.
