"A fundamental human need is to feel emotionally close to others. Difficulty connecting in a platonic or romantic way can leave one feeling sad, anxious, and lonely. Often, we retreat from attempted connection to avoid potential pain, or become involved with others who may cause us more interpersonal stress because we don't know any different or because we don't want to feel disconnected. But isolating or engaging with harmful others can cause us to feel vulnerable, damaged, and upset with ourselves. This pattern often leads us to question if we are capable and deserving of joining and creating mutually beneficial relationships."

"If you are struggling to manage your feelings, make desired changes in your life, feeling unhappy, anxious or depressed then psychotherapy can be a very powerful way to create change and alleviate emotional pain. People are not always aware of why they are feeling distressed, behaving in certain ways or repeating patterns. By providing a safe and thoughtful environment, clients and I collaborate to develop a deeper understanding of their thoughts, feelings and behaviors and to identify underlying issues that may be interfering with the quality of life."

Perhaps you’ve found yourself stuck in old emotional patterns, struggling to make satisfying connections with others or manage complex feelings from past traumas. You may be striving to live openly and authentically, but unsure how to take the next step toward a more fulfilling life. As a counseling psychologist, I am trained to help you clarify what you want from life, let go of the emotional patterns that no longer serve you, and live with greater purpose and fulfillment."
