If you’re tired of recycling the same argument, walking on eggshells with each other or don’t know how to repair your relationship, I can help you get to the root of your disconnection. I help distressed, disconnected couples remember what it's like to be sexy best friends instead of roommates. Together, we will identify your entrenched ways of arguing so that both of you can break these patterns by learning how to clearly state how you’re feeling to your partner and in turn, listen deeply. I'll help you pay close attention to each other, so that you both feel a little more held each time we meet.

For real... I love working with people experiencing relationship problems, depression, anxiety and traumatic experiences that are holding them back. Why? Because I see those things get better everyday and that's awesome. Deeper connection, peace, fulfillment, creating a life you love, all possible. Counseling can make an enormous difference when facing adversity. It awakens courage and enhances wisdom, allowing more ease and intimacy. I am nurturing as well as direct, trusting in your ability to change. I want to work with people who are ready to roll up there sleeves, break painful patterns, and begin healing.

I believe individuals are unique because of their life experience, perceptions, genetic and cultural background. I don't use one therapy fits all; I use what I think is best given what each client tell me. I encourage, people to move past their own limitations, but do not insist, because it is their journey not mine. I have worked on my own issues, and continue to do so, I appreciate the courage it takes to open up to another person. This process takes time to build a relationship of trust so you can talk about what you don't want to talk about. My hope is you will find a safe place with me to discover more about yourself

Life is worth living well. Our biggest obstacle to living a life we love is the constant and habitual ramblings of our minds: the judgments, the doubt, the dwelling in past suffering and the negative predictions of what the future will bring. True freedom comes when we break free from the thoughts that create pain, dissatisfaction and frustration. There are also situations where we have negative feelings that seem to "come out of nowhere". This is due to unconscious processes that trigger painful emotions. I provide tools that effectively work with the unconscious and direct it toward healthy outcomes.

I provide a space for people to be with all aspects of who they are "“ mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I believe we are all experts on our own lives and have within us the knowing of what is best for us. There are times when we feel disconnected from that knowing and can benefit from support in reconnecting with it. I offer space to enter into a deeper exploration of one's life. I support others in accessing their inner process in order to be with all of the parts of one's personality and all the information and wisdom held there.

Everyone has a unique story to tell. Sometimes the story is full of joy and laughter and sometimes it has challenges and heartbreak. For most of us, it falls somewhere in between. By taking the time to share and understand your story, you are given the opportunity to understand how your past shapes your current existence and how past relationships inevitably impact current ones. By understanding and owning your story, you give yourself the opportunity to choose how you want to go forward. One's past does not have to define one's future.

Often people come to therapy because they feel lost or stuck in their lives. They may sense that they are repeating patterns or facing the same struggles at work, in their homes, or in relationships without really knowing why or being able to imagine how things could be different.

Hello! My name is Taren and I have been working in the field of mental health since 2008. I thoroughly enjoy working with people and feel honored when a person trusts in me their life story/current difficulties. I believe there are many different reasons to seek therapy, and that each of us have walked such unique and sometimes challenging paths to get to where we are today. I enjoy getting to know the intricacies of these paths and what has led an individual to where they are today, and from there beginning the work, collaboratively, towards where one would ideally like to be.

I can help clients when they are at a difficult moment dealing with complex life transitions and experiencing grief, anxiety, stress, and anger. I prefer to help clients with existential methods that invoke depth orientated psychological approaches from Jung, Gestalt, and stoicism. Clients that are able to receive homework assignments for mindfulness and reflect on the challenges they are having will be the best equipped to look at introspection and navigate their mood disturbances with assistance in the therapeutic relationship.

We will not try to make you do what somebody else wants you to do. We start with your goals & find ways to help you develop the necessary skills. We have found that, if a person's individual wishes are not represented in the solution, it will not work in the long run. So there is a strong emphasis on helping each person take responsibility and control over their own happiness. Some things are better handled individually, and some things are better handled with both people in the room. Our unique blend of individual & couples therapy is quite effective.
