People often don’t believe in therapy because they don’t believe they can change. Some people imagine their “ideal” self and feel that they are too far behind or too unstable to become that person. I do this work because I believe in people and I know they can change. My purpose as a therapist is to meet you wherever you are in your journey and create a safe, empowering space where we can work together as a team to move you closer toward your personal goals. This may mean working through past trauma, finding ways to get out of a toxic situation, or perhaps it just means helping you get out of your own way.

All human beings have within themselves the capacity for living happy, meaningful lives. We are meant to thrive, however it is quite common for distressing life experiences to interfere with our natural way of being. Sometimes obstacles are known to us, but have been resistant to change. Others remain hidden, but what we do notice clearly are psychological and emotional symptoms of distress (depression, fear and anxiety, emotional reactivity, irritability, addictions, etc.). These symptoms can significantly impact our quality of life, and almost always cause problems in relationships.

Searching for a therapist can be one of the most difficult parts of coping, healing, and self-empowerment, because it's the first thing you must do. You must force yourself out of your comfort zone and out of whatever routine you've had before, to take the initiative and embark on a new path. When we're at our best, stepping out of our comfort zones can be daunting; when we're feeling vulnerable, it can seem nearly impossible. No matter what prompted you to take this first step, I'd like to be there for your second.

Sometimes it's unclear where to even start or go next. There are times we are overwhelmed by our emotions making it feel unsafe to take one more step or have blocked feeling altogether. Beloved, being well and healing IS possible and the process, though undoubtedly uncomfortable and uniquely yours, does not have to be gone through alone.

***I am currently not accepting new clients at this time*** Change isn’t easy; in fact, it can be really hard! We may find ourselves wanting change yet ironically procrastinating and avoiding making the necessary steps towards that change. Taking the initial step to therapy can be an anxiety provoking scary process. I strive to create a safe, comfortable, non judgmental, and empathetic space to partner with each client uniquely. I believe that a supportive therapeutic relationship is essential to helping individuals feel safe, develop trust and achieve their goals.

Looking for a therapist can be challenging. For those looking for the first time, I'd like to offer some thoughts on finding one who's right for you. While credentials and experience have their place, at the end of the day the most important thing is fit. I encourage you to "go with your gut." Do a phone consult. Did they give you space to talk? Did you feel heard? Sometimes what we need is feeling supported by someone who "gets" us. Other times we grow from someone who is able to challenge us in just the right way.
