*Currently accepting new clients - SELF-PAY ONLY* Our practice specializes in the treatment of trauma and addiction. We view anxiety, depression, mood instability, codependence, chemical and process addictions, relationship discord, anger, perfectionism, low self-esteem, and emotional sensitivity as an indication of where a person lives in their nervous system. By working with the natural inclination of the nervous system to heal, we support individuals in overcoming their symptoms and connecting to their deeper selves.

We are living in incredibly trying times. We won't find the answers to this distress through the news or social media. We have to look beyond the constant influx of outside messages and search for meaning within ourselves. And, we can find the tools to do this in ways that speak to each of us individually. This ability to turn inward helps us make more freeing choices and gives us the wisdom to navigate the outside world.

In my practice, I work with clients to explore past experiences and how they might be influencing current thoughts, feelings, and behaviors — nurturing insight and awareness to elicit growth and desired change. I view therapy as a collaborative process that can assist in identifying and working through challenges so that life can be lived with greater balance and self-compassion. I strive to create a safe space for individuals to freely express their authentic selves, while working together to set and progress toward therapeutic goals.

Being at peace with yourself is not easy. Showing yourself the kindness you easily give to others can be extremely challenging. This is especially true if you are accustomed to anticipating the needs of others before acknowledging your own. You may find that your sense of worthiness depends on how useful you are to others. The beautiful thing is: you are enough already. Self-acceptance and self-compassion are common goals I work toward with clients. These practices are essential to create a stronger, more loving relationship with yourself.

As you consider a therapist search for someone who seems to value the things you value, someone who will want to support your life goals; listen to your own sense of who can get you started on the road to healing, recovery, or flourishing; focus on your need to understand what you really want and how to start getting more out of your life. I take time with my clients to be sure we have the right fit and that we know you are in the right place in the first few sessions. I am currently accepting new clients until January 2023.

My clients may feel that they have been unable to comfortably make decisions in their lives or have made poor decisions. They may not have been able to identify or achieve their goals, leaving them feel unfulfilled. Often, they want to initiate change but have uncertainty about their ability to do so or the steps in that process. They seek to establish and achieve goals that will bring fulfillment, enjoyment, material comfort and success in their lives. My clients seek lives in which they are self-confident and motivated. Through the coaching relationship, they determined what was important to them, then pursued and achieved it.
