As humans, our natural inclination is to move away from pain. But at a certain point, we may find that the strategies that once protected us are causing us even more pain. Together we can find ways to break old cycles that are keeping you stuck in order for you to move into the wholeness you desire. Many times when healing feels impossible, it is only an indication that what we have tried so far will not suffice. This is when it is necessary to mindfully keep one foot in the present and one foot in the past in order to safely reprocess certain memories and emotional responses.

Something happened. Something that feels difficult to impossible to share with others. Feelings of shame or worthlessness seem all-consuming. Maybe you feel like the things that used to bring you joy don't anymore. Or you just feel so. Tired. All. The. Time. Or you feel a constant current of anxiety humming a chorus of "What if, what if, what if" in the background of every waking moment. Maybe there's an inner voice that insists if people see the real you, bad things will happen. Maybe you've been using food, exercise, perfectionism, sex, or self-harm to try to keep all these unbearable thoughts and emotions at bay.

Perhaps you are struggling with crippling anxiety, the effects of trauma, or lack of motivation. Working together we can address these issues to help you live a happier life. Therapy doesn't have to be about changing yourself, it can be a journey of self discovery. I take a holistic approach to therapy, exploring all dimensions, in order to get a clear concept of you. This helps us implement specific coping skills for you, reframe, and connect you to your inner strengths

The people who want to be the best version of themselves, who want to break “generational traumas” and work on their mental health so that they can pass down health, wholeness, peace, and light to the next generation, yeah, those people are the superheroes.

While post-graduate training, and teaching, have increased my skills, what makes me a good therapist are the beliefs I hold dear. I believe in people and their ability to heal and thrive. I believe that the connection I have with my clients not only allows them to open up to me, but others as well. Most importantly, I believe that working with others is a tremendous responsibility and a sacred trust. It is an honor I never take lightly.

Hello. I use a direct, yet supportive approach to focus on improving life skills and releasing negative beliefs and behaviors. Experience has shown that by changing unhealthy patterns, expressing fears, and taking gentle risks, it is possible to live a more satisfying life regardless of past traumas and other issues. With a combination of techniques, we will work together on both short and long term goals. I am an interactive therapist and encourage intensive work both in and out of the office. I have a home office and use video sessions as needed to help with time constraints/distance. I have two small sweet dogs.

Sometimes we come to a place where we realize the life we are living is not aligned with our personal values, purpose, or desires. There may be patterns that have served a purpose in the past, helping us manage fear when we have felt unsafe and haven't had the resources to effectively cope. While these strategies may have helped you survive, they may now be holding your body and mind hostage to the past. Together we can explore these patterns with the goal to help you develop personal insight, learn new coping strategies, and heal into a fulfilled life.
