I work with the human psyche! WHETHER LIFE IS ON FIRE OR WHEN PAIN IS TOO STRONG TO BEAR OR IF YOU LOOK FOR PERSONAL DISCOVERY. My ideal client comes in in order to learn about how to tune with his or her psyche. Clients, in depth work, learn about the inner and outer relationships and how to connect with the things that lies underneath. I see clients who are looking for discovery of what exists beyond the behavior and their actions and who are willing to dive into learning about the forces that drive them.

When you felt bad as a kid, who did you talk to? Was it okay to talk about what you needed? Did you feel seen, heard, and acknowledged? The way our feelings and needs were handled or ignored as a child has a big impact on just about every element in our lives today - relationships, how we communicate, reaching goals, even our self-image. If you struggle with finding a partner, managing relationship conflict, negative self-talk, codependency, and expressing yourself authentically these can be related to early experiences in your family. It's likely that you came up with some coping strategies that worked back then but don't today.

* TELETHERAPY PROVIDED AT A SLIDING SCALE* The self can be the source of much mystery and turmoil. Unexpected life events, interpersonal troubles, and difficult transitions can leave you feeling lost. Sometimes we can lean on our community and other resources, but it can be tough to find a safe space to explore our true needs and feelings. In a world where everybody has an opinion, an unbiased perspective can be hard to find. Therapy can be a transformative experience of acknowledging Self and finding a higher level of functioning.

In the midst of these uncertain and trying times around the COVID-19 pandemic it is easy to find ourselves wrapped up in fear and anxiety. Although these emotions are normal, they definitely are not comfortable, and left unchecked can result in a downward spiral of isolation, disconnection, and depression. First and foremost, I want you to know that you are not alone in this, and encourage you to stay connected to loved ones as best as possible. We are innately built to be resilient, and meaningful interpersonal connections are the avenues for such strength. However, sometimes we can have that and still be overwhelmed with fear.

Maybe you are a teenager who feels misunderstood by the adults around you. Maybe you are a couple struggling to communicate and you feel alone. Maybe you have experienced anxiety or depression and do not know where to turn. At the root of many problems is the lack of feeling truly seen, heard, and understood. We want to feel we matter.

Aside from my vast array of clinical experience working with clients from various age groups, cultural identities, personal/professional backgrounds, presenting problems, and seasons of life, I am a relational therapist who values and appreciates the process of therapy. It is in the sacred space therapy upholds that clients learn to triumph out of moments of vulnerability, and to celebrate the small steps forward in spite of potential setbacks or apparent standstill. One of my goals for all clients that seek my help is to trace outward symptoms to unmet needs, and to improve quality of life by finding ways to meet those needs.

Do you find it difficult to say no, or have a hard time answering the question of; "who am I,"? Perhaps you find yourself very much "there for" others, but having difficulty knowing what it means to take care of yourself along the way? Often, we find ourselves in patterns of relating to others in which our own self takes a back of the bus seat, if a seat at all. However, in this way of relating to ourself & others, we can often feel resentful, anxious or even depressed. It can be very helpful to have space to begin to value the question of who you are & to move forward from there into a healthier way of relating.
