"You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom."

"I am not currently able to accept new clients. In therapy, we zoom in and out across multiple layers, sometimes viewing problems through the lens of history and culture. Therapy might examine how relationships and larger systems maintain or reinforce unwanted symptoms and negative views of the self. It may not be your sole responsibility to heal familial or societal wounds--however, changing individual behavior patterns can positively affect the system as a whole. I work well with clients who are socially conscious and critical, who seek to align their behaviors with their values."

"I believe each person has inherent value and worth. Through lived experiences, one can cease living from a space of inherent worth, authenticity, and connection with others. I believe therapy can be a place to be heard, witnessed, practice new ways of experiencing the world, and to find authenticity and connection. Therapy can lead to a reconnection to positive self-worth and value. Commitment to therapy takes a great deal of honesty, courage, and vulnerability. I use a holistic and person-first lens. I see clients as people first and assist them in finding their true authentic selves."

"Life is complicated and seldom straightforward. We are often left facing challenges that are surprising and difficult to navigate. It may be a new role, a disappointment at work, a problem in a relationship, or some lasting echoes from the past that still show up, that causes us to feel anxious, angry, sad, confused and “stuck”. We try our best to manage by using coping strategies that turn out to be more problematic than helpful. We are then left thinking, what happened? Will I ever feel like my old self?
