Have you ever wondered where that anger comes from, or why you can't seem to shake that feeling of guilt or self-deception that keeps getting the best of you? My approach centers around understanding where we get our anxiety and how we can work to create a better sense of calm in our lives. Every person struggles throughout their life to hold onto the positive relationships and the warmth and belonging of their families, but sometimes life throws us so many curves that we swing and swing until we're hot with rage or blue with sadness.

The world is different today and we are all in uncharted territory. Change is often uncomfortable, and it is normal to grieve when our world drastically changes due to loss of a relationship, a job, a friendship, trauma, illness and even life changes. In times of crisis, we can uncover opportunity. We discover inner resources and resiliance. Exploring thoughts, feelings, fears, and successes helps us sort out what's not working while building upon our strengths. The safe space in therapy provides support and strategies needed to adapt and thrive during uncertainty, crisis and inevitable life changes.

Life can be hard! If you are struggling with challenges such as: marriage or relationship issues, infidelity, anxiety, depression, divorce, job loss, grief, or low self-esteem maybe it is time to do something different. If your current efforts to deal with relationships, emotions, and life's challenges just aren't working, it is probably time to get some help. Maybe you're unsure if counseling really works. Counseling is no "magic pill" that instantly fixes your problems! However, it does help many people change, heal, and improve their quality of life.

Counseling is an investment in your quality of life. Therapy can affect your present and your future. People often search for help when they feel confused, stuck, afraid, hopeless, helpless, or trapped. Does addiction (substance/behavior) control you? Does it cause harm? Does a relationship disturb you? Any of these sound familiar: "We fight all the time!" "When will I/he/she grow up?" "I'm walking on eggshells." "The lies!" "Should I stay, or should I go?" Have you experienced painful loss? Feel socially uneasy? Does the life you live differ from the life you want? Is the struggle with anxiety? panic? pain? depression?
