Trauma can leave you stuck in survival states that inhibit feeling safe.
Do you sometimes feel you are living with a total stranger? Maybe your relationship feels distant, clingy, or stagnant? Perhaps you and your significant other are tired of fighting, repeating the same argument over and over again? Or maybe you feel okay enough, but you are looking for more? More for yourself and/or your relationship. If you are tired of feeling like nothing can change, come and discover how to live more out of a state of calm, open, and connection.

We will balance Self-exploration, emotional reprocessing, trauma-informed counseling, skill training, and goal-driven action in order to move you towards your goals.
Increased acceptance of mental health needs has resulted in an overwhelming flood of self-help books, podcasts, advice blogs being released, along with an explosion in demand for counseling and psychotropic medication. Maybe you've tried one, some or even ALL of these approaches, and have found some success or temporary relief... but not the lasting change you need and deserve. If you're wanting to move beyond only symptom reduction, just feeling "stable" or "getting by" and desire a life that is flourishing and rich: then my relational, evidence-based approach to counseling focused on deep inner and outer transformation may help.

I treat from a client-centered and trauma-focused perspective.
So, let's not call it "needing" therapy. What if we just say, we're feeling overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, conflicted, or isolated? If you're feeling any of those things, I can help. I often start treatment the 1st or 2nd session. After 6-12 sessions clients usually feel significantly better. I'd be happy to meet with you over the phone confidentially, have a brief discussion (at no charge), and see if it sounds like we would be the right client-therapist fit.
