My speciality is working with people of all ages that are highly sensitive, empathic, and intuitive. They usually know who they are, but keep it quiet in order not to stand out, but to fit in with social situations. Highly sensitive people are like sponges. They absorb other people's energies and are not sure what to do with it. They may have a sixth sense that has been undervalued or they don't know how to use it both in their professional and personal lives. What they do know is how it has been effecting their life and how tiring it is.

Do you have an irrational, gut feeling you can't seem to shake? Maybe something telling you that you're not good enough, unsafe, powerless...? Sometimes, difficult experiences in our past can cloud how we live in and see the present. We find ourselves overreacting to things or people, feeling anxious or worthless. Our head can tell us we are being irrational, but that doesn't change the feeling. One of my goals is in helping you re-process the experiences in your life that push these feelings, so you not only know that you're okay - you feel it.

CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Personal change and growth come from an encouraging, supportive, safe, compassionate, and empathetic environment where an individual can discover oneself and grow. Are you finding yourself unsure of where to turn in life? That coping mechanisms which once worked for you no longer are? Do you struggle to find a connection to yourself or others? Do you find yourself still struggling with things that happened long ago and you don't understand why? Having the courage to work on one’s relationship to self and others can be powerful, deeply healing and perhaps one of the most loving actions one can do.

As a therapist I have witnessed healing and its splendor in the darkest of circumstances and am honored when individuals choose to embark on this journey with me. I know the decision to enter therapy is not always easy. Therapy is not easy. But therapy heals. When you enter therapy you put forth a willingness to acknowledge painful emotions and circumstances and a readiness to explore life events that are often uncomfortable, sometimes even paralyzing. But the insight and meaning you will gain from therapy will lead to transformation, comfort and growth.

In the midst of these uncertain and trying times around the COVID-19 pandemic it is easy to find ourselves wrapped up in fear and anxiety. Although these emotions are normal, they definitely are not comfortable, and left unchecked can result in a downward spiral of isolation, disconnection, and depression. First and foremost, I want you to know that you are not alone in this, and encourage you to stay connected to loved ones as best as possible. We are innately built to be resilient, and meaningful interpersonal connections are the avenues for such strength. However, sometimes we can have that and still be overwhelmed with fear.

Often there is a sense that we are at war with ourselves. We wrestle with our own anxiety, fear, lack of self-esteem, and sadness. We resent our bodies for the way they look, for struggles with sexual and gender identity, for the loss of a pregnancy, for having endured sexual abuse or trauma, for the drives we experience, or the pain we feel. Turning towards the struggle, with compassion, can begin to disarm the situation, and bring a sense of peace and stability back to our life.

I don't believe that struggling is weak or wrong, it allows us to grow into stronger and more capable people. I think that there are some experiences that hit us a little harder than others and have us needing some support along the way, everyone has conflict and difficulty in their lives at one time or another. I also believe that our emotional challenges can affect our physical experience through anxiety symptoms, chronic pain, exhaustion and difficulty sleeping as well as in other ways.

Most of the time, when we feel stuck or lost or frustrated or just "not quite right," there's a blind spot we're not seeing, or an opportunity to develop some skills that would help us thrive more in our own lives. We can often eventually figure out things on our own, but it's often faster, easier, and more effective with help from a skilled professional. My coaching is practical and deep.
