Feeling understood, feeling helped, and feeling supported are at the core of psychotherapy. Many people contemplate calling a therapist for a long time, unsure of what to expect or how to proceed.Therapy can help when life’s challenges become too much to approach alone. Together, we can explore difficult issues you are experiencing and make sense of what’s going on. Some common therapy goals are to relieve accumulated stress and pain, unlock stuck places, and deepen one’s connection to one’s own voice and needs. In a safe setting with warmth and engagement, I provide an opportunity to gently move through what is bothering you most.
I began my career helping children and families understand how early life experiences can impact one’s sense of self as an individual as well as in relationships. Sometimes relating is guided by unconscious beliefs and emotions. Making links between these different ways of being can open up space for new tools, strategies, and lived experiences.
I welcome the opportunity to meet with individuals and couples.
