If you are struggling with an issue in your life and you feel "stuck", you know how hard it can be to ask for help. You may have tried therapy in the past and it had some benefit, but you are ready for a different approach. Have you ever thought, "I get what my therapist says about my anger, sadness, anxiety or trauma, but it doesn't change my pain"? You want to work through your issues because it's draining to spend so much energy keeping them contained, just to get through the day or week. Then you may want to try therapy with me.

As a systemic and attachment-based therapist, I believe we are all looking for connection, belonging, and acceptance. However old we are – infant, child, teen, or adult – we need to make sense of what happens to us, inside of us, and in our relationships. Our life experiences shape us in profound ways; our sense of self, and how we manage emotions, respond to stress, and connect with others. When life experiences are adverse, our body and brain can make meaning in ways that can cause distress. I help clients connect with their innate ability to change and heal difficult experiences so they can find peace and self-worth at any age.
