Stories have always fascinated me. They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another. They are also a powerful vehicle for how we perceive, interpret, define and live our lives, yet sometimes it can be easy to forget that we can be the authors of our story, not just a character proceeding along some previously determined narrative.

My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that each individual has the capacity to affect change in his/her life. I also believe in my responsibility to actively engage with my client and facilitate their movement through their issues and feelings. Different theoretical interventions may be more facilitative depending on one's particular needs, one's background, one's view of the world, and one's capacity for insight. As a therapist, I truly consider the individual as a whole and attempt to utilize the most effective tool to facilitate progress towards independent wellness given the particular needs and challenges of my client.

Sometimes, maybe more often than not, you're feeling hopeless; worried about your family or relationship. You're struggling to get through the day feeling like you are drowning while everyone else is breathing. You're feeling disconnected from your family & they seem to be arguing & fighting more. Your partner feels distant & you aren't connecting with them like you used to; romance has mostly diminished. Everyone is so busy and you're feeling lost and alone. There are times when you feel on edge but aren't sure why, like a weight is sitting on your chest. The thoughts "I just want to feel better" have taken up space in your head.

Throughout our lives we go through experiences that help us define who we are. These moments of connection and isolation, fulfillment and confusion are foundational events that make us, us. These can be life altering experiences; societal forces, traumatic events, difficult relationships, or a series of distressing events that we carry for the rest of our lives. Working through these experiences can be scary. Therapy can help us unpack these moments and lead more meaningful and fulfilling lives.
