Are you feeling stuck? Past practices and coping that once served the purpose of protecting you from further difficulties, often become obstacles to your well-being as well as interfere with your functioning in relationships and community. When caught in the cycle of stress and / or trauma you may build a narrative that involves blaming of others and / or shaming and blaming yourself. By seeing the contributing biological, psychological, and social factors and by taking responsibility for changing the things you are capable of changing, you begin to successfully navigate obstacles. I am here to help.

Do you on one hand feel that you are worthy and deserving of love and success but there is still a nagging critical voice that prevents you from opening up and pursuing your dreams? Are you struggling with negative memories and beliefs about yourself? Are you sometimes frustrated or ashamed of the way you think and behave? If part of you can say "yes" to any of those questions, then you are completely normal and you can learn to feel more balanced within.

Therapy can oftentimes come with a stigma. However, I believe that pursuing therapy identifies an internal strength not yet discovered. If you are reaching out to find new ways of coping, releasing old patterns, mending relationships and/or lessening the heaviness of persistent anxiety/depression, you have clearly found that strength. Together we will use that strength, building trust and rapport to reveal underlying strengths that enhance self-esteem and boost your overall life satisfaction. I also believe in balancing challenging topics/goals with light-heartedness and humor to make the process more tolerable.

What generally brings one into therapy may be multifaceted, but generally includes a feeling of disturbance in some part of life and a hope to receive help in getting through. My approach seeks to reduce disturbance and promote healing by endeavoring to understand the meaning and needs underneath the symptoms and how, through a collaborative effort, symptoms and difficulties can be used to lead one to experience more integration, wholeness, and contentment. This approach can help one deal with issues of the here and now, while also encouraging one to live a life that more fully expresses who they are.

Many things can happen in our lives that can leave us feeling alone, misunderstood, unhappy, beyond frustrated and confused. Sometimes these feelings can be about others; or we can have these overwhelming feelings about ourselves. These situations can be because of: change, loss, grief, confrontation, struggle, sadness - and are sometimes too much to bear alone.
