We travel various paths throughout our lives, weaving experiences together writing the story of who we are. Experiences may cause us to question the path, and suddenly our story no longer reflects the life we intended to live. At these times of questioning, we must explore how to proceed. If you find yourself looking for someone to talk with, to think through where life has led you, allow me to walk with you for a while on your journey. What meridian lines do you need to guide you to your destination? Let’s work together to find how your story shifted from your intended path, and let’s find how your journey continues.

My theoretical orientation is varied depending on your needs. I help you to formulate your therapy goals in a collaborative fashion. Although therapy can be distressing at times, I often use humor to decrease distress and increase coping skills. In addition, I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) techniques to build resources for positive coping skills. EMDR can help you face uncomfortable emotions, such as anxiety or depression, and reprocess traumatic memories.

Taking the first step to initiate therapy can be hard as facing our problems may feel scary and challenging. Therefore, I try to create a safe space for clients and make this process as smooth as possible. My approach to therapy is to help individuals build insight and self-understanding into their difficulties and patterns, and help them move from feeling “stuck or lost” to feeling encouraged and empowered to make the changes they want and need to have a fulfilling and satisfying life. In sessions with me, you will find warmth, support, empathy, genuineness and honesty, a splash of humor, as well as some challenging conversations.

Whether you seek therapy to help restore balance in life or you are simply trying to invest in your mental health, congratulations on taking that step! Sometimes, unexpected events profoundly impact us, and we are left wondering how to pick up the pieces. I believe that individuals become the person they are today through life experiences, thus shaping their worldview and how they think, feel, and behave. Connecting with my clients is of the utmost importance to me, and I aim to hold a safe and comfortable place where my clients feel empowered to be their most genuine selves.

“Is my life reflecting who I really am?” Adulthood is a barrage of responsibilities. Your career. Your relationship. Family, health, personal satisfaction. Finding the right balance is complicated. Especially when we aren’t really sure what we really want. Society, culture, and family often have their own ideas of the life you “should” be living. But what about YOU? What is the life that YOU want for yourself? Even when you have clarity about what you want, then what about actually getting it? These are difficult questions to navigate and address. Often, it is easier to pour a glass of wine and put on Netflix.

Life does not come with an instruction manual on how we can best navigate through our journey. Instead life is a learning process, which if we are lucky can involve insight and personal growth. At times we are fully capable to balance ourselves, our relationships and our schedules, yet other times not so much. Unhelpful feelings such as stress or frustration can too often resonate with us as we go about our daily routines. These potentially damaging reactions to life's obstacles can lead to making the once ordinary appear to be overwhelming or even unmanageable.

Have you been struggling to connect with your partner or family? Is it becoming harder to understand one another and resolve conflict? If you are seeking relief from these common relationship stressors, I can help! Initiating couples or family therapy is anxiety provoking, since most of us would rather not talk about the things that bother us - and this makes sense! Why would we want to talk about intense topics such as trust, anger, intimacy, money, or parenting? But you're here and it's very brave to start therapy and face challenges, because ultimately it is what helps us enhance connection and strengthen relationships.

I firmly believe we are created to live life in the present with joy, peace and love. However, we are inundated with media, messages and influences that leave us stressed, anxious and overwhelmed. We strive, push, and repeat unhealthy coping patterns. It is exhausting! Eventually, you find yourself lashing out at your loved ones, becoming judgmental, staying busy and disconnected, blaming others or being mad for reasons you can't remember. The patterns and ways of being can change, but it takes more than talk therapy. It requires listening and being with your whole body, your whole nervous system.

It takes courage to seek out therapy, so congratulations on taking the first step in your journey of therapeutic healing and connection to self and others. What happens in the therapeutic setting in conjunction with lifestyle enhancements can, over time, bring about lasting change. With gentle facilitation, you can increase awareness of body and mind and enhance mood, motivation, agency, and integration of skills. These self-improvements allow for a more self-directed life that can be lived more fully through consciously curated personal values and choices. I have worked with children, teens, young adults, adults, and families.

Those I work with are often quite stuck. They may even be in crisis. They struggle with anxiety, depression, upsetting or intrusive thoughts/voices, unexplainable feelings in their bodies, painful memories, questions about gender or sexuality, substance abuse, suicide and more. These experiences may interfere with friendships, parenting, romantic relationships and/or work. The symptom, no matter what particular form it takes, is a message that wants to be heard and hopes to be spoken.

I practice from a holistic standpoint, believing many factors go into the human experience and should be given their appropriate attention. I believe therapy is a little different for all individuals. I strive to meet individuals where they are and tailor my approach accordingly. I always work to create a safe environment for all people suitable for personal growth, healing, and exploration. I believe clients are the experts of their lives, and my role is to offer support, guidance, education, tools/skills, and the occasional interpretation.
