It can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy and takes courage to make that first contact. OFFERING VIDEO SESSIONS BECAUSE OF COVID 19. As your therapist I will engage you in becoming comfortable exploring your inner self and learning where do you get stuck and what increases your satisfaction in life. Using a compassionate and collaborative approach, we will develop a plan that addresses your issues. You will learn to look in the mirror and not the magnifying glass to improve both your self image and relationships with others. You will also learn how to set boundaries; this reduces anger and increases self esteem.

Humans have a biological need to feel safe and worthy of love. In a world that repeatedly invalidates sensitivity and vulnerability, it’s not surprising that many of us struggle to feel happy, attain goals and find fulfilling romantic relationships. Some of us turn to substances, while others over function. If we are parents, we may find that we accidently repeat hurtful dynamics with our own children. Suddenly, or not so suddenly, we find ourselves struggling with guilt, shame and hopelessness. I am here to provide a warm and non-judgmental space, so that we may explore the strength and resilience you already posess.

You often feel sad and don’t understand why, or how to feel relief. You avoid activities that could be enjoyable, which affect your relationships and social life. You lack the motivation or energy for daily tasks that used to be automatic. Maybe you experienced a horrible event, or a painful, stressful period in your life and you believe your life is forever changed.

Sometimes life experiences leave us feeling overwhelmed or hopeless and we find that the ways we usually cope are not helping. Sometimes our personal journey involves difficult, seemingly impossible crises or losses. Sometimes we try to manage emotions with activities that help us feel better for a short time but then the cost starts to outweigh the benefits. I believe we all go through times like this when we are tired of struggling. The path towards recovering from these experiences seems more doable when we are able to find a renewed motivation and clear goals towards change.
