I provide services for *Veterans and Active Duty Military* too.
You did everything right. You went to college, got the job, have an apartment your friends envy, but you still feel like crap. You've been on a million dates, but it never seems to work out. At this point, it feels like you're going through the motions in life. On paper, your life is great. You go to the happy hours, check out the latest restaurants, and work out. Your parents brag to their friends how wonderful you are, but you feel guilty for not measuring up. You're not happy and you don't know why.

Change - whether it is personal, professional, environmental - is the one constant in everyone's life and also the one thing we fear most. It is even more difficult adapting to change that is forced upon us. We often feel alone, vulnerable and unmoored in these moments of transition. As a therapist, I want to assist my clients in tapping into their inner wellspring of resilience and guide them through these challenging life phases; I have experience working with a variety of individuals /concerns/issues, such as LGBTQIA+, veterans, couples, anxiety, depression, stage of life transition and those struggling with identity issues.

At times it may seem as if we're at odds with our mind. The thoughts and feelings we experience seem overwhelming. We can convince ourselves we're undeserving of contentment, love, happiness, success, acceptance, etc. Where does that come from and why is it so easy to believe? For those of us in the LGBTQIA+ community, there are added layers we need to work through, making it difficult for us to thrive.
