You want to be confident, get rid of your self-doubt, take on challenges, build authentic relationships and not let fear, stress, pain, anxiety, and/or depression don't dictate your every move.
Life is good, you are successful, confident, and look forward to the future… or at least it used to be that way. Now days your anxiety has gotten so bad that is it is almost unbearable. Despite any success you feel like an imposter, you can’t stop comparing yourself to others and second guessing yourself. Your mind keeps focusing on past mistakes, worrying about the future, and you feel aimless and stuck. You often procrastinate, feel distracted, and hopeless. You don’t want to give up, but you feel overwhelmed and lost.

I have seen couples rediscover intimacy and connection, women heal from past hurts, adults break free from stress and anxiety, and families grow closer.
Are you tired of facing the same struggle, over and over again? The same marriage problems...the same anxious feeling when you wake up and go to sleep...the same stress that never leaves you in peace...the same sense of hopelessness and loneliness. You've tried to feel better - to improve things - but nothing ever changes and you're right back where you started. I can help. I specialize in helping people to leave behind the struggles, patterns and habits that keep their lives stuck on repeat, opening the door to a life of connection, wholeness and peace.

I work best with clients eager to participate in a shared process of discovery to 1) ease the pain accompanying loss, stress, trauma, or transition, 2) gain insight into confusing or self-destructive patterns of behavior, 3) learn tools for managing depression and anxiety, 4) express themselves and live more creatively.
Psychotherapy is an art and science providing individuals with an opportunity to heal and grow. In a confidential and caring environment I support individuals to face painful aspects of their lives, access their inner resources, and begin taking new and healthy steps into their futures. It is natural and necessary to grow and change throughout life. Individuals are called by life circumstances, relationships with others, or by an internal restlessness to relinquish old ways and to develop new abilities. In our work together, clients and I identify steps toward creating the future they want to live.
