Building momentum towards change and turning it into action can be difficult. It can even feel impossible. We all have moments of doubt, self-criticism, and feelings of emotional unrest. Whether it is rooted in infancy, adulthood, or anywhere in between, emotional pain from the past can very easily reverberate into our present and future. Therapy is a means towards forging a new relationship with self and the larger system we operate in. Whether you are struggling with post-traumatic stress, addiction, building intimacy in relationships, responding to emotions, or the stress of being human, it is important to know you are relatable.

I also enjoy helping people who are experiencing difficulty navigating a relationship with their parent(s).
I love working with young adults. Right now your lives are filled with choices and decisions, and you may be trying to develop deep, long-lasting relationships. You've got so many life transitions going on all at once, and it can be very confusing! If you also have emotional pain happening in your life at the same time, you may feel "stuck" in moving forward. There's so much to look forward to in your life and you don't want to miss out.

Emotional pain can often be debilitating; however because it is not as tangible as physical pain it is often suppressed or dismissed. Whether it presents itself in the form of anxiety, depression, grief, or relationship issues, emotional pain may be managed by applying the proper means of treatment. Understanding and identifying the patterns of the experienced symptoms can serve as the first step to emotional relief. In doing so, I use top-down techniques as: Jungian analysis and dream interpretation as well as bottom-up techniques such as: EMDR, brain spotting, and somatic experiencing.
