Are you the spouse of a law enforcement officer who is constantly caught between needing connection with your partner while also respecting the burdens he carries from his work? Even when your spouse comes home, he’s not fully present with you and your family, remaining distant and hard to connect with. You manage your home, show up to events solo, and endure the ups and downs of shift rotations because you love your partner, but deep down feel resentful that he isn’t available to you the way you need him to be. All of this is just made harder by the unknowns of the job and the anxiety of knowing if he’ll come home at all.

Most people come into therapy in the midst of a crisis. Usually they have been sitting on their feelings and anxieties for weeks before they bite the bullet and seek help. They come into my office in a sort of terror, and their immediate goal is to make the pain stop as quickly as possible. I am much more interested in getting to know your pain than in getting rid of it. I want to know where the pain stems from, how you suppress it, why it scares you and from whom you hide it. That way we aren't "fixing" your pain in this moment, but we are preparing for the next time life inevitably throws a version of that pain at you.

Are you feeling caught between contradictory feelings of hope and despair? Finding a space where we can feel deeply understood is important to developing a secure sense of self. Psychotherapy offers a reflective space to explore the wordless thoughts, the nameless pain or the inner conflicts that may inhibit us. Through therapy a greater sense of integrity and meaning in life is possible. When we respond with genuine understanding and acceptance, hope may be restored and joy found. I listen to clients with openness and intuition. I encourage those I work with to begin to trust their own inner resources and find their own resilience.

I believe that we all consist of “parts” - facets of ourselves that formed in response to life experiences, beliefs, and felt emotions. Here is the twist: the parts we resist and outlaw in ourselves seep through the cracks of our fragmented soul and manifest as undesirable behavior with unwanted outcomes. For this reason, we stay stuck and parts of us remain unfulfilled and unattended. These are your warrior parts that helped you survive throughout your life. They don’t want to be rejected or blamed. They don't need fixing. They want to be understood, accepted, and to ultimately belong.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I work with couples, individual adults, and adolescents and their families. I realize that it is a big decision to enter therapy. When I was much younger, I remember being afraid of the idea of therapy. Then one day I experienced a crisis and found myself in front of a therapist. I mark that day as a major turning point in my life. Instead of having to deal with frequent uncomfortable feelings (e.g. anxiety, depression, feelings of unworthiness and shame), the clouds lifted and I just felt--well healthier.
