Forrest Gump may have said it best, "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get." So... how do we cope with what we 'get'? Or -- how do we change it up if need be? Here you may be at a crossroads. Maybe you need help navigating intense emotions, relationships or loss. Maybe covid-life has hit you hard. Therapy can help with many of life's challenges; even help to restore a sense of joy and curiosity; agency and ability. Together we can build understanding and cultivate a sense of balance that is beneficial for you and your relationships.

I have worked with those who have been affected by childhood abuse and neglect, children in foster and adoptive placements, domestic violence, sexual assault, traumatic grief, substance abuse, severe mental health issues, such as depression, PTSD, anxiety disorders, suicide, divorce, relational issues, and secondary trauma.
I am not accepting new clients at this time. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. You might be initially hesitant to seek out help and support for personal matters, but when you do, you will feel confident that you are taking a courageous first step towards getting to a better place and being a better you. I have seen the positive impact that therapy can have when you are willing to do the work.

Where deeper work is needed, I often use projective therapies, such as Art therapy,or Sand tray,as well as work books that address healing from depression, sexual abuse, ADHD, and grief.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is an important piece of the process through which growth and healing can occur. Helping clients to feel safe enough to share their feelings is paramount, and to offer hope is vital. It is important for the fearful to know that courage is being afraid, but doing it anyway. This concept promotes self esteem, and helps people to move forward in their lives. I use a variety of theoretical orientations, but chose the ones that are best suited for my client needs. I give clients tools to work with that will help them change their negative thoughts to positive ones..

In many ways good psychotherapy is like a successful remodel, frequently resulting in a stronger and more spacious sense of one's self, lovely new rooms, remarkable views and better access to the world outside (and in). The journey of self-discovery takes courage, but increasing one's awareness of old limitations and obstacles, and developing the ability to gently and carefully dismantle and rebuild where necessary is incredibly rewarding -- often beyond what we can imagine. I believe that it's a collaborative journey on which we embark, moving together towards creating a more fulfilling and rewarding life for you.
