“ Something needs to change. I just want to feel better.” You find life’s challenges overwhelming. Sometimes sadness overcomes you. You need a good support system, but navigating relationships can be difficult and frustrating. The effects of past trauma continue to impact your life. Making day-to-day decisions and finding the motivation to follow through feels insurmountable. You don’t really know who you are or what you want out of life. Learning to cope with life’s obstacles, connect well with others, make wise and confident decisions, heal past wounds, and live into your authentic self are hard work but worth the effort.

Do you find yourself ruminating over the past and feeling embarrassed, anxious, or depressed for “not being over it"? Perhaps you learned to compartmentalize your emotions to cope. I work with my clients to hone their emotional awareness and create space to meet, understand, and process parts of their lives that have been put aside to survive.

You are a multifaceted, rare, precious gem of a human, and I want to support you in shedding the conditioning that prevents you from sharing your magic with the world. The cards we are dealt are often unfair/unequal. We did not choose the bodies we were born into, the parents or caretakers we were given, the environments we grew up in, our pain or trauma, or the injustices woven into the systems we inherited. We are not responsible for what is inflicted upon us, but we are responsible for our healing. And like the water carves through rock, you too can start upon the path and life you desire.

Together we will find the right path, and right set of practical tools, to help you overcome obstacles and become your best self. After over a decade-and-a-half working in mental health, I am skilled in the latest, evidence-based therapies available (e.g., Relational Mindfulness and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy). But no single approach works for all people at all times and, remaining flexible, we will create a safe therapeutic environment with the best combination of techniques that works for you. So many different psychotherapies exist today because there is no one approach that works at all times.

As you grew up and made your way through the world, you may have found yourself disconnected. You may have been told that who you are wasn't okay and needed to be changed to be acceptable. You may have found that your relationships don't feel as satisfying as you hoped they would be. You may, as a result, find yourself with that constant nagging feeling that no matter what, you're somehow too much and not enough all at the same time. As your therapist, I want to get you back in touch with who you are so you can live more authentically into your values, identity, and desires.

Feeling stressed and exhausted all the time? Are you overwhelmed, feeling stuck, alone, or hopeless? Does It seem like no one understands what you are struggling with? Do you question your identity and your place in the world? Your self-esteem is pretty low and you may have trouble setting healthy boundaries at work or with loved ones. Your inner critic whispers that you are not enough and you don't deserve better. Life feels fucking hard and you realize it is time to seek help. You are ready to feel joy again, to feel that deep passion for life, to rebuild connections, and to be present in your body and in your world.
