I work from the idea that all of our life experiences are opportunities to discover ourselves. The road to peace, health, healing, purpose, meaning, and happiness is learning how to allow and be more of YOU, and less of who you think you should/ need to be. You and I will process your story, get to know your patterns, see what is getting in the way, and ultimately help you feel empowered and inspired.

Thank you for considering me as your clinician. I understand it is difficult to reach out for help. Right now, you may be navigating feelings of shame, embarrassment, and anger.

There are times in life when things can feel incredibly hard. Lingering sadness and anxiety can threaten to overwhelm us. Maybe it has been a long time since you remember feeling happy. Trauma and early adversity can take root in our bodies and impact every area of our life. We may also be relying on unhealthy behaviors to cope with our deep unease. If you find yourself feeling stuck in old patterns and are wanting to reclaim more happiness in your life, then therapy can help you find the change you are seeking. My intention is to create a safe, compassionate space to support your journey toward living your best life.

Instead of going day-to-day surviving, you could be truly thriving. Your struggles may seem like a lot right now, and you may feel like peace is unattainable.

Are you tired of that voice in your head that’s telling you that you’re broken and crazy? Are you struggling to move forward after a toxic or controlling relationship? Have you ever felt betrayed, hurt, or taken advantage of by a loved one? You are not alone. Destructive, controlling relationships can leave us feeling disconnected from our friends, our families, and even ourselves. Left unaddressed, the lingering effects of past trauma can touch every area of our lives. But suffering is not a life sentence, and what is broken can be put back together even stronger, braver and more resilient than before.
