Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed.

According to Mental Health America (AMA), before COVID-19, data shows that over the past 3 years there has been a steady increase in the number of youth and adults struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms and there continues to be an unmet need for individuals to receive proper care. AMA states, since the onset of COVID-19, the number of people looking for mental health services has “skyrocketed.” This past year has been painful for so many on so many different levels. If you're seeking balance amidst a myriad of uncertainties, let's connect. Therapy is not just another obligation. It's a gift to yourself and you deserve it!

If you're overwhelmed, anxious, or feel you've lost your way, therapy can help. You can take your power back. I help people who have experienced trauma and/or stress regain control of their lives. Extreme stress (trauma) can make it hard to cope and move past the experience. Circumstances like personal crisis, injury/pain (physical and emotional), and helplessness make it feel difficult to move forward. You've survived the traumatic event; you can heal and improve your life! I can walk with you so you're not alone.

Does life feel overwhelming? Hopeless? Like no matter what you do things never get better? You find yourself lying awake at night beating yourself up, wondering why does life have to be so hard all the time? Others view you as successful, friends describe you as happy and outgoing yet inside you feel lost, lonely, and unfulfilled. You know you’re not living your best life and that it’s time for a change yet you don’t know what to do and don’t feel like you can trust in your ability to make good choices. You know there is another way to live and are ready to do whatever it takes to make changes for the better!

NOT ACCEPTING ANY CLIENTS. You spend more time taking care of others than yourself. As a child, you experienced the painful effects of abuse and neglect. As a professional, you pledged to take care of others, to be the person you needed as a child. In your family, you are the " responsible" one. At work, you are the " go-to" person, mentor, trainer, and leader. Everyone counts on you for everything. When you aren't available, it's like everything falls to pieces. You are emotionally, mentally, and physically depleted. You feel forgotten, stressed, and burned out. You ask yourself, " What about me?" or " Who can I trust?"

You have been trying to find some way to live a meaningful and fulfilling life. You have always experienced life with great depth and thoughtfulness, however, something hasn’t quite clicked yet. You perceive that others seem to have their lives together, although, in all of your rich internal experience, you haven’t been able to, just yet, put all of the pieces together. You may feel alone, experience anxiety, depression, or engage in compulsive behaviors you just can’t manage to quit. Yet something in you knows that there is a greater world out there, maybe even right around the corner, if you could just get a glimpse of it.

Sometimes we struggle to feel seen, find belonging, and have the kind of life that we deeply desire. We find that our old ways of surviving are no longer effective and may even be making things harder for us now. We get submerged in complicated feelings that are confusing and scary. I enjoy accompanying people through these issues, providing a supportive space for you to move through stuck points, process issues towards closure, and emerge to more genuinely appreciate your life and relationships.

Through my 27 years of experience working with individuals of all ages and backgrounds in a variety of settings, I have realized that a one-size-fits all model of treatment is not the most effective method of providing support and assisting with change. My therapeutic approach is grounded in the latest research on human and brain development, trauma and attachment, as well as the power of unspoken words and actions. I specialize in working with women, going through transitions or relationship trauma, children, teens with emotional and behavior problems and their parents who struggle with divorce, co-parenting and parenting skills.

Does it feel like your body is on overdrive - tense, fearful, unsafe, unrested - like it sometimes has a mind of it's own and is totally out of your control? At times life feels paralyzing and pleasure feels out of reach? I believe that listening more deeply to the body and mind is a critical ingredient for lasting change and finding more control in your life. Through deep therapeutic work and sharing ones story we have the potential to feel less impacted by the past and create a greater capacity to experience joy.

We humans are wired for contact and connection. Yet sometimes we don't know how to develop the needed connections; relationship building and managing one’s life effectively can thus be both terrifying and exhilarating . Lack of healthy support and resultant traumas leave us depressed, anxious, isolated, or insecure, leading to addictions, obsessions and compulsions, poor communication, relationship difficulties, or general dis-ease in one’s life. Yet healing is possible, and finding a therapist with whom you resonate is crucial.

Life is a funny thing. And often terribly complicated. During our journey in this world, we often face challenges that can feel too big or ongoing. Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently. But you don't have to. It can help to work with a therapist with a deep understanding of what it’s like with some of those struggles and who is passionate about helping others learn to thrive despite these adversities.

The poet, Rumi, wrote: "Don't turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That's where the light enters you." I went back to graduate school so that I could sit with others willing to do this courageous work. Maybe you are ready for such a journey.
