Putting the needs of others above your own? Preoccupation with protecting other people and fixing their problems? An intense need to be perfect and gain approval from others? These are all common patterns that can lead to feelings of depression, anxiety and lack of fulfillment. I have a unique understanding for those who are struggling with these issues. With deep empathy, I can help you understand how your past experiences and relationships are affecting present day and provide you the solid ground to stand on to take risks to change your life and relationships.
I understand the alluring power of numbing to avoid those pestering feelings of "not being good enough." Working as a collaborator in your healing, I can help you reach a place where you realize you always had the power, you just needed to learn it for yourself.
My practice is open to all, but my specialty is working with creative professionals, those who identify in queer and TGNC communities, and alternative sexualities. I also specialize in substance use disorders, EMDR, and ongoing psychodynamic relational therapy. Visit my website to find information about appointment availability.
