It's a terrible feeling to be awake at 3 am because your mind is flooded with worries. Your worry may have started as small, but then it lead to another worry... Suddenly, your worries feel overwhelming. You feel shaky and unsettled. It's hard to concentrate on anything but your worry and that restless feeling in your body. You tell yourself, "Just stop worrying about it." You want to let go, but you just can't figure out how. It's hard to not beat yourself up.

Therapy helps people to change their lives, most fundamentally through a connection to their therapist. As a therapist, I listen closely during sessions, paying careful attention to how overlapping social oppressions, collective histories and past life experiences emerge in the present. I attend to a patient's need to speak their mind, to be heard and understood. At the same time, I remain alive to what may be unsayable, and why. Throughout the course of therapy, we work to make sense of the dynamics that shape lived experience and to make difficult thoughts and feelings both sayable and survivable.

At times you may feel too depleted to consider making needed changes in your life, or to know what is even possible to change. Old coping mechanisms no longer work so well, bringing diminishing returns and unhappiness. It may take a crisis to be ready to seek help. Psychotherapy can reveal ways of replacing the behavior patterns and symptoms that cause us trouble with real solutions. Using the insights of existential and psychodynamic perspectives of psychology - including dream work - as a basis, I will help you understand yourself, care for yourself, and discover strength and meaning wherever you may find yourself in your life.

You are brave for being here. You have done your best as a parent, and yet your child is still struggling. It hurts to see them beating themselves down, and selling themselves short when you know who they are at their best. You've heard them say "I'm not good enough," "no one understands me," or "things would be better if I weren't here." Maybe they've turned to self harm to manage their emotions. You want to protect them, help them heal, and show them the beauty you see when you look at them.

Therapy is collaborative. The client is the expert on their own experience and should be in control of their healing process. Because of this belief, I approach therapy from a place of respect and humility. It is important to me not to pathologize clients.
