Deciding to take those initial first steps toward seeking help through psychotherapy can be challenging. Some initial concerns may include, "How will I know if the therapist is competent?" "What if they judge me?" "Will I feel comfortable telling them what I am really feeling and thinking?" These concerns are extremely common in trying to find the right therapist for you. The key phrase is "the right therapist for YOU..." Everyone is different with different needs. I encourage you to read about my experience and the services I provide in to see if I may be the right therapist for you.

"Why is this so hard? We love each other but we can't stop fighting." I understand the hopelessness of living in a cycle of conflict. It is emotionally draining, and it makes everything in life seem more difficult and less rewarding. I became a couples therapist because I believe deeply in the importance of being and having a supportive and loving partner. I will help you to understand how and why you are getting triggered, so you can take better care of your own emotional needs, learning how to turn toward your partner and speak for those needs in a way that he or she can hear you, creating a more secure and peaceful relationship.

Why is this coming up now? Why can't I just get over it? As we move through life, and especially at times of transition or loss, old wounds can create new pain. Symptoms like critical self-talk, painful anxiety, persistent sadness, recurring difficulties in love and work, can become overwhelming, making trouble in our relationships and getting in the way of living our best life. Working together, we can make sense of what's happened and understand its effect on your present experience, opening up the opportunity for true healing and building capacity for deeper connections with others.

Yet we all go through periods where life circumstances-- traumas, life transitions, and relationship difficulties-- overwhelm our ability to make sense of our experiences. Perhaps your reactions don't make rational sense to you or your loved ones. Maybe old coping strategies no longer cut it anymore. It can be confusing, terrifying and lonely to not be able to make sense of the storm happening inside of us.

Psychotherapy is a process for self discovery. I see this process as sacred, creative and deeply personal; with no two processes exactly alike. The more engaged in this process, the fuller and more enjoyable life becomes. One of the single most consistent indicators for a successful outcome is the relationship between the client and the therapist. Empathic attunement, acceptance, curiosity and collaboration are all important ingredients to this relationship. These qualties I am committed to throughout the therapy process.

Living can often land you on a different course than the one you expected. There are moments in life when you feel lost and unsure where you took a wrong turn. Maybe you’ve been feeling down or worried but are hesitant to bring it up to family and friends out of fear of burdening them. In these moments, it's important to have a space where you are safe to be yourself, a place to remind you that where you are at is not who you are.
