"Psychotherapy is one instrument of change for feeling better. For example, earlier psychic injuries may alert us when faced with challenges making us anxious, depressed, endure sleep problems or feel out of balance some way. Long term recovery from addiction, grieving and loss, chronic illness or pain may call for deeper work. Many stress points show up in relationships, at work or in how we feel. Life transitions (starting or ending a career, big changes in relationships/family, starting a young family or retirement ) are important passages in our lives and therapy can be a great guide."

"It may be the old adage, “walk in another person’s shoes”, but It is my belief that when one sees themselves, others and the world through multiple lenses, one is better equipped to cope with life stresses and relationships. Each person, all of us, have unique stories to share and also a part of our shared story as a family, community, nation, and world. By surfacing and examining with open eyes and ultimately, re-writing these narratives that shape and guide our lives, we can achieve genuine insights into ourselves."

"Depression can make you forget who you truly are. Chronic self-doubt and sadness can cause you to feel hopeless and negatively impact your goals, relationships, and overall well-being. You might notice your favorite activities have become unenjoyable, and everyday tasks you used to accomplish with ease, start to feel impossible. Feeling increasingly sensitive, irritable, and isolated, are all ways that depression can get in the way of you being your true self. My goal is to help you overcome depression, and gain a renewed sense of hope about the wonderful life you are capable of living.

"When it's an uphill battle to manage anxiety, low self-worth or impulsive self-sabotaging habits, it’s probably time to find more inner trust and self-acceptance. In working together, clients often feel more confidant, ease and effective in life and relationships. I put myself into my client's "shoes," so they feel supported and understood during their journey. I use evidence-based approaches to create life altering change. These changes then get "wired" into the brain where emotions, impulses and habits are rooted. I also do regular talk therapy to help with life challenges, but this is can be less effective for lasting change."

For better or worse, our experience is shaped by expectations and habits that are maintained by loyalty to important relationships, and by cycles of confirming experience. They affect our happiness, our relationships and the success of our endeavors. Therapy can help.
