Do you get anxious and flooded with emotions that keep from being yourself? Do you avoid conflict, procrastinate and put on a happy face to just go with the flow? Sometimes unhealthy coping habits creep in…are you using substances or unhealthy habits to calm yourself or to avoid speaking your truth to others? Numbing yourself or “rewarding" yourself with an addiction does not have a positive outcome. Let me help you show up for yourself and those you care about most.

At times, we struggle through life’s challenges, perhaps feeling stuck or unsure of the path forward. Maybe you’re going through a stressful transition, burdened by emotional pain, or just have an inkling that life isn’t going “right.” Psychotherapy can help you navigate life’s difficulties and cope more effectively. My focus is to understand your concerns, help you consider underlying causes, work on making better choices and increase your sense of control over unwanted behaviors and thoughts. Regardless of the intensity, severity, and frequency of your concerns, nothing is too small or too big to benefit from psychotherapy.

Keeping up appearances is getting harder. Stress, obligations, and worries are taking their toll. Between the many obligations you have, these days there's not much left over for you and it's getting harder to just brush it off and keep going. You wish there was a way to feel more like yourself, reconnect with the people you care about, and maybe even sleep better again. When was the last time you really felt your best? It's starting to feel like it's time to take the next step to take care of YOU now. To be able to really feel inside what you work so hard to show everyone on the outside.
