Sometimes life gets in the way of truly living. You may be feeling stuck or overwhelmed. Maybe you are more anxious than usual, noticing the impact of trauma in your life, or finding it especially difficult to navigate important relationships. Whatever has led you to this place, you are not alone. These experiences make it difficult to live the life you want and have meaningful relationships. My role is to help you move away from avoiding difficult experiences and move toward a more open and accepting perspective towards yourself and your experiences so that you can create the vital life you want.

Do you feel "stuck" in the past, destructive behavior patterns, or have critical self-talk and disturbing beliefs about yourself? Do you feel disconnected or overwhelmed by your mind or body and not able to live the life you want? Call me, together we can gently begin the process of change and healing. It may feel impossible now, but I quite often reflect upon the following quote "...do the thing you think you cannot do" by Eleanor Roosevelt. In making this call you will find a place where you are valued and nurtured, to compassionately begin your healing journey.

Whether you want to enhance your self-confidence, address unresolved relational issues, or gain a greater appreciation for life in general, therapy can guide the way and provide you with a plan for success. Such exploration is especially helpful if you find that you have been relying on unhealthy coping mechanisms to appreciate yourself, your relationships, or your life. Often, people turn to substances or unsatisfying relationships in order to distract themselves from their discontent; therapy offers the means to transform the unhealthy patterns so that true joy and contentment can be realized.

Each person is unique, but life can present us moments that are not particular to anyone. For example thoughts like: "I'm scared to be alone", "I'm afraid that something bad could happen", "I can't deal with this situation", "I feel like everybody judges me in a negative way or no one understands me", "I'm a failure", "a disappointment or not worth it!". You may have tried hard to handle these thoughts and feelings on your own but now you feel tired, frustrated and running out of options. It's always difficult to take the first step in requesting the help to get tools that you need to face these life challenges!

Are you feeling as if you are experiencing an overwhelming disharmony... Emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually? You are not alone. Truth is, creating the "American Dream" is a challenging process of hills and valleys. We all go through experiences of discord or hardship throughout this lifetime, and it is sometimes difficult to manage alone. Because you are reading this, that means you are considering creating a new narrative to manifest the destiny you have always dreamt for yourself or your family. Investing in your future with a non-judgmental, compassionate therapist can abet the right turn into dominating your future.

As a clinical social worker and psychodynamic psychotherapist, I often hear, "I know what I need to do to feel better, but I just can't seem to make myself do what I should." Change isn't always straightforward. Knowing on an intellectual level doesn't mean that it makes sense emotionally. I support your exploration, without judgment, to illuminate stepping stones through the bog that once seemed impassable. At your pace, on your terms, I can help you to cultivate greater insight and navigate through the pain and suffering.

My practice centers around providing clients with the skills that they need to thrive in the face of stressful situations. Prior to entering private practice, I worked as a clinical psychologist on the spinal cord injury unit at TIRR. These individuals would have never otherwise sought mental health care but were faced with one of the most stressful and challenging experiences of their lives. My role was to help these individuals to effectively cope with serious, adverse medical events and to live happy, fulfilling lives. Likewise, in my private practice, I strive to help clients successfully navigate complex situations.

We all struggle at some point. We all feel as though we aren't achieving our goals. We all goes through the motions of day to day life at some point thinking "something has to change". One of the best (and hardest) things someone can do is recognize when they need a little extra support, and it seems as though you've reached that point. And that is okay!! What a wonderful step you are taking to regain control of your life, relationship, or overall well-being. You have the answers to your problems, we just have to dig and work a little to get you that point of realization.

You just took a very huge step, and I thank you. Sometimes just making it through the day can be a challenge. Especially now, with so much going on in the world. It can be a lot to handle at times, but know that you don’t have to sort through those feelings or overcome that fear alone. Know that it is possible to move beyond that stress and anxiety, those depressed feelings, burnout, phobia, relationship issues, and those feelings of being lost. You CAN do it.
