Often there is hesitation and fear when we take those first steps toward seeking help. Many people envision a therapist as a disconnected observer; however, my clinical approach is very relational and collaborative, meaning you and I both work together toward your healing. Once we've established a foundation of trust, my style tends toward creative and playful, as I feel the role of laughter is often undervalued in the therapeutic process. Our struggles are not silly, but we human beings often are. People typically enter treatment expecting tears, and they often come, but joy is equally powerful and cathartic.

Everyone has their capacity for happiness and I want to help you find it. Happiness comes from creating connection to ourselves, our environments, our purpose, and others. I help adults looking for assistance in improving their lives and breaking through old patterns of behaviors. I help those looking for direction, purpose, and answers to questions about their experiences. People ask themselves why they keep having the same things happen over and over in their life, I can help figure out those patterns and help to eliminate them so that you can move forward.

I enjoy working with adults who suffer from low self esteem, anxiety, codependency, depression, and problem behaviors such as eating problems, self injury, isolation. I believe that every person vacillates between getting stuck in their limitations (egos, neediness, dependencies, self-criticism, self-absorption), and expressing their true selves (compassionate, living authentically). With awareness of our limiting beliefs often rooted in our upbringings, and with insight into our strengths, we can shed old emotional and thought patterns that no longer serve us and live a meaningful and satisfying life.

I partner with clients to identify their own unique strengths that can be used as resources to foster growth and change. I am attentive to the role of early family experiences, cultural values, oppression, and stigma in shaping client's experiences. Particularly when addressing painful or traumatic areas, I attend to clients' emotional safety using mindfulness and body awareness. I believe that healing happens in the context of honest relationships and invite my clients to engage in open dialog about our work together.

**Teletherapy secure video sessions available** Finding a therapist can be challenging. It may feel overwhelming to take the initial steps to begin counseling and search for someone who is the right fit for your unique personality. I emphasize the importance of a positive therapeutic relationship where collaboration assists you in getting you to where you want to be. Many people have asked me how I can do such a difficult job. I see my “job” as a gift. It is truly special when people allow me to be apart of their lives and can be vulnerable with me as we walk together in the healing process, whatever that may look like for them.

I see therapy as a process in which you and I work together towards helping you overcome obstacles to living life authentically, as a healthy, integrated person. This can be achieved by helping you gain insight into relational themes and patterns, learn new coping strategies, and become empowered to take the steps needed to create the change you desire. Often we experience symptoms such as anxiety or depressed mood that interfere with our ability to achieve or even form goals. Through alleviating these symptoms, you can increase understanding of yourself, honor your needs, and develop more satisfying relationships with others and with yourself.
