If you’re someone who holds yourself to high standards, you might feel frustrated by how you get in your own way from succeeding.

"You're not sure what changed, but you have noticed that you don't feel like yourself anymore. You feel exhausted and on edge. Your mind is constantly racing, and you can't seem to focus. Instead of doing the things you used to do, you binge watch TV or spend hours “scrolling” because that's all you have the energy to do. You try to sleep, but can't seem to quiet your mind, and you wonder if you will ever feel better."

"If you are struggling to manage your feelings, make desired changes in your life, feeling unhappy, anxious or depressed then psychotherapy can be a very powerful way to create change and alleviate emotional pain. People are not always aware of why they are feeling distressed, behaving in certain ways or repeating patterns. By providing a safe and thoughtful environment, clients and I collaborate to develop a deeper understanding of their thoughts, feelings and behaviors and to identify underlying issues that may be interfering with the quality of life."

"It's a total crap shoot trying to choose a therapist, and you've been through this before. Maybe you have come close to making that first call several times but are filled with doubts and questions. You've gone to therapy but felt like the counselor didn't get you, maybe you're also a therapist searching for the right fit, or you have no idea how it could possibly help. Even worse, you're afraid of finding out something actually IS wrong with you. Perhaps you've also been questioning yourself, believing you shouldn't feel the way you, or you've been called "too sensitive.""

I provide a safe, focused environment that allows my clients to explore themselves, their relationships, and their experiences in the world. I also offer special sensitivity to how cultural, racial, and societal issues affect an individual's life.
