Are you or your relationships struggling to find your footing? Are you feeling overwhelmed or hopeless that attempts to turn things around have not worked? Are you looking for a way to transition, adapt, reconstruct, transform, advance, or find more harmony in your life? I believe that therapy is a powerful tool to be used in creating the change you want to see in your life as it is responsive, accessible, and sustainable; we all want something that works, that we can do, and that lasts.

Is your life being restricted by fear, worry, phobias, shyness, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, or repetitive/compulsive behaviors? Do you feel that your "comfort zone" has been shrinking, you've been avoiding things that you want/need to do, or that you get "stuck in your head" and can't be present in your life? There's good news: things can get better. My goal is to always bring a compassionate, authentic attitude to therapy that respects each client’s individuality, while utilizing powerful, evidence-based practices that have been proven to work.

Though each person’s experience is unique, a common thread is that not knowing where emotions come from adds to distress. My hope is to provide a nonjudgmental place to better understand your emotions so that you can gain a sense of control in creating a meaningful life. A meaningful life may involve feeling comfortable sitting alone with your thoughts, the past becoming less haunting, more effective communication in relationships, feeling productive, or something else. Whatever you are working towards, I am here to support you.

Keeping things inside us is a terrible, lonely weight. It may start off feeling manageable, but it eventually builds up. Often we find it difficult to share with others, because we don’t want to burden them or be seen as “needy.” At these points, I think we just need someone to be honest with about our experiences and needs, without fear of judgment. When we notice we’re having the same thoughts and problems coming up repeatedly, we might need a push to get us unstuck. When an old hurt arises, we may need the space to explore it and the skills to ground ourselves in the present.
