I also have a special connection with the homeschool community as I homeschooled my boys. I love working with families and helping parents and teens communicate. I work with anxiety, depression, grief and anger management (among other things).

Finding the right therapist for you can feel daunting! You might wonder if it's possible for someone to really get you & if opening up is worth the risk. I connect well with those who feel set apart from those around them or have difficulty connecting with others. We come to know & understand ourselves in the context of relationships. Without authentic connections, we can end up feeling really stuck - disconnected from those around us & from ourselves. Through the experience of being with another person in a safe & accepting space, the therapeutic relationship offers a unique & meaningful opportunity for self-discovery & healing.

Have you been feeling overwhelmed, anxious or fearful lately? Are you feeling isolated, disconnected or burnt out? These can feel like chaotic times and many people are needing increased emotional support. If you or your partner are expecting a baby or are a new parent, life can feel especially unmanageable. You may be worried about staying safe and healthy, attending doctor appointments alone or not receiving as much social support after baby has arrived. Therapy can be a safe, non-judgemental space to reflect and process these complex emotions.

We all have a variety of emotions, and that's normal! It's when they interfere with functioning or turn into a long-lasting mood that we could use some help. Perhaps you feel anxious and depressed, or dissatisfied and upset in your relationships. Maybe you need support as you weather a storm in your life, or someone to help you get back on track with your normal functioning. The bottom line is you don't want your mood to derail your goals, your relationships, and your life.
