You feel so deeply that it’s difficult for you to not feel overwhelmed when faced with decisions. You also feel the need to take every other person's feelings into account, often at your own expense. You have done this for as long as you can remember, and now you’re in a place where you find it challenging to know what it is that you actually want. You regularly feel a sense of loneliness when it feels as though others don’t consider you in the same way. You struggle to find that balance between work and your personal life as it seems the stress of work constantly follows you home.

“If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive.” - Brene Brown. One of my favorite things I get to do as a therapist is meet a variety of people and help them live authentically. Sex and sexuality are often associated with shame. If you find yourself navigating these feelings, you’re not alone. Sexual dysfunction is a common problem among all genders and sexualities.

Life didn't come with a manual and sometimes we find ourselves off course or stuck, unable to move forward. A sensitive and caring approach to counseling may help you discover the thoughts and beliefs that hold you back, as we utilize a cognitive behavioral approach to therapy. I say we, because cognitive behavioral therapy is a collaborative process between equals, that challenges and changes the thoughts that work to maintain depression and anxiety. My goal is to help guide you through the process of therapy, allowing you to truly heal, as you gain access to and build upon your inner resources.

My clients come into therapy me with a wide range of issues often related to anxiety, depression, family stress, interpersonal conflicts, work/life balance stresses, parenting concerns, aging stresses, and a host of other concerns. Some individuals just need to talk their issues out for a few sessions. Others are seeking someone to walk through a longer period of time with them to address long-term, ongoing issues. Life comes with many challenges. Sometimes it is difficult to see the way through those challenges. I believe that all of us have the power to meet and overcome the challenges we face.

Your mind tells you; it was so long ago, and it wasn't that bad...then why is life so hard to do? At times, you feel alone and yearn for a sense of belonging. Sometimes you feel the darkness of your pain is too much for others to bare and you spent a lifetime trying to cover up the hurt, but now it feels too big of a burden to hold inside. Your forced smile no longer covers up the pain of the past. Your pain is not too much for me to hold. You are worthy of healing and I am here to hold your darkness.
