Got COVID stress? Or were you feeling stressed and anxious before the pandemic? If you live or work in the DC area, you are very familiar with stress. Chances are your work-life balance isn't at all balanced. Maybe you are a perfectionist always trying to do more. Maybe you are a people pleaser who struggles to say "No". Meaningful pursuits such as fulfilling relationships, personal interests and staying healthy are harder to navigate because now you have to stay home. All these factors can intensify your level of stress and anxiety.

Many of us begin to wander on our journey through life. We are unsure if our next move is our best move, we sometimes run into detours that change our direction, and often we hit pitfalls that can knock us off course completely. Some are able to struggle through, and others seek assistance with the help of a counselor. A counselor comes into your life as a GPS system, assisting with reviewing the course previously taken and providing you with the tools to “help you help yourself” get back on course towards your desired destination.

Relief from psychological pain comes when we face feelings that we are avoiding and develop new ways of looking at our lives. I have worked successfully with adults experiencing difficult situations at work, in relationships, and in life transitions. Through our work together, I will help you challenge unhelpful beliefs and alleviate distressing emotions so that you can free yourself from suffering, regain hope, make better choices, and live a more authentic, satisfying life.

Are anxiety, anger, alienation, sadness or confusion causing you to feel overwhelmed trapped or hopelessly thwarted in reaching your goals? Or do you feel a deep longing for change? The call to deepen your understanding of yourself, of others and your situation is often signaled by negative thoughts, painful feelings, or a work or relationship crisis. The opportunity to talk with someone who is accepting and takes a practical approach restores hope, rekindles desire, resolves conflict, and directs the flow of energy towards positive movement.

Healing and change are possible for all of us. I am reminded daily of people's innate ability to mend and grow if they are provided with the right tools in a supportive and compassionate environment. Past traumatic events can leave scars and behavior patterns that can get in the way of people leading the life that they choose. I create a safe space where we can work together to allow scars to heal and transformative change to take place. My clients experience healing from sexual trauma, adverse life events, relationship issues, generalized anxiety, and dissociative symptoms and they find freedom from feeling "stuck".
