Being home with your kids in a pandemic is a LOT to handle. It feels impossible to keep on top of online schoolwork, get meals ready, and get your own work done. You're exhausted. And that means more fights with your partner, too. You just need a moment to yourself. To relax and regroup. You're so ready for the kids to go back to school. But you're dreading that moment too. You remember the phone calls about classroom behavior and unfinished assignments. And the meltdowns over drama with friends. You're not sure you're ready to handle all that again. But it CAN get better. Now, and in the future.

Helping people with disabilities help ourselves! Learning you have a chronic illness or disability can feel overwhelming. You may feel "broken," alone, or depressed, but you're not. I've successfully helped clients work through the initial shock of diagnosis, learn effective coping skills, and view the present and future in a realistic, positive light. I've also helped clients with chronic illnesses maximize their quality of life and reach their goals, such as returning to work or school, or being a better parent or spouse. We'll set up a plan that meets your needs now, then empower you to reach your goals together.

In a non-judgemental, respectful atmosphere I accompany people along their journey to living richer, more meaningful life. I encourage people to broaden their awareness into their thoughts, feelings, reactions and behaviors to identify strengths and whats working and challenges and how they are getting in the way. Recognizing the the mind-body-spirit connection, understanding healthy and antiquated defenses and increasing capacity for feeling a greater range of emotions at a deeper level is an important focus of the psychotherapy process. Identifying feelings, understanding reactions and learning better, more effective means of communicating with others is integral as well.

Ladies, are you emotionally exhausted? Past and current life challenges have overwhelmed you. Friends, coworkers and family are sometimes dismissive, leaving you feeling unheard and judged. You don’t express your feelings to avoid making others uncomfortable. You’re experiencing anxiety, low self-esteem and the impacts of stress; you question if you can hold it together and “be strong” as you're often told to do. With frustration mounting and your mental health on the back burner, you wonder if you can have it all. Does this sound familiar?

My counseling style is direct, compassionate and interactive. I believe the most critical aspect of therapy requires a therapist to go beyond just sitting and listening. I believe in establishing trust in order to truly be able to have a positive impact.

Many feel alone and overwhelmed when they are struggling with life challenges or mental health symptoms. Some people try to stuff the “bad feelings” deep down and pretend they are okay, while others shut out family and friends so they don’t hurt them or feel judged by them. It can be hard to have hope when you feel trapped in such a dark place without a light to see the way out.

Being a human can be really hard sometimes. Maybe it’s hard because there’s an area in our lives where we struggle, like in our careers or relationships. Perhaps, we’ve experienced some painful times that we haven’t fully healed from or find ourselves engaging in problematic behaviors. Whatever our struggles, I’ve found that psychotherapy can help reduce our suffering and help connect us to the joy of being alive.
