I work from the idea that all of our life experiences are opportunities to discover ourselves. The road to peace, health, healing, purpose, meaning, and happiness is learning how to allow and be more of YOU, and less of who you think you should/ need to be. You and I will process your story, get to know your patterns, see what is getting in the way, and ultimately help you feel empowered and inspired.

According to Mental Health America (AMA), before COVID-19, data shows that over the past 3 years there has been a steady increase in the number of youth and adults struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms and there continues to be an unmet need for individuals to receive proper care. AMA states, since the onset of COVID-19, the number of people looking for mental health services has “skyrocketed.” This past year has been painful for so many on so many different levels. If you're seeking balance amidst a myriad of uncertainties, let's connect. Therapy is not just another obligation. It's a gift to yourself and you deserve it!

There are a lot of new pressures in your world right now. Things are changing quickly and there's a lot of uncertainty. "What if I crumble under all of these pressures?" You appear calm on the outside but on the inside you're wondering if you're really cut out for this. Anxiety about all of the uncertainty and your ability to manage it is real. It makes it difficult to think clearly and perform effectively, let alone be present in your day to day life. What can you control during these times of sudden change? You're ready for a mindset change - to go from reacting to taking charge of your life in this new environment.
