You may know what the right choices are but choose comfort at the expense of your genuine desires. You need not criticize yourself to explore your challenges and make changes in your life."

Luckily, therapy can provide you tools to deal with life's challenges, enabling you to minimize your stress levels and continue your personal growth. I will guide you to increased happiness and well-being by supporting you in exploring and enacting lasting, positive changes in your relationships with others, and most importantly, with yourself."

"I believe relationships are the foundation of our emotional experience--this includes both the relationship we have with ourselves and the relationships we have with others. Often, feeling disconnected from our self can cause us to feel disconnected in other areas of life, such as our career, family, friends, or hobbies. I believe healing occurs when we increase our understanding of ourselves and our relationships, and use that awareness to cultivate new experiences. In my practice, I can help you learn about yourself and support you in stepping outside your comfort zone to make the personal changes you want to see in your life."

"Hello! I have 13 years of experience working with individuals and couples. To me, therapy is a form of healing that helps us find balance and psychological flexibility through a therapeutic process. Whether it is learning more coping skills or arriving to a new insight about ourselves, it is a journey of understanding our lives better. Through our journey, we will learn WHEN and WHAT to let go or to keep. Exploring what serve us purpose now, even when it’s negative, can help us understand our past, present and future. "

"You may feel as if you are a passive participant in your life longing to be more active and connected while feeling so incredibly stuck. If you find yourself here, perhaps you or your child has been struggling to enjoy things that he or she usually enjoys (having friends over, heading outdoors, reading/watching tv). Their mind might be filled with worries of what others think and they did something wrong and are having difficulties shaking off an interaction. You or your child are wanting to feel more at ease in your relationships while finding yourself in familiar unhelpful patterns."

"Many of us enter adulthood with beliefs about love influenced by Hollywood depictions of romance. If we're fortunate, we've had more nuanced and realistic models, examples from adults who've shown us what it means to commit to another person and what love through a real lens looks like up close. The luckiest of us we saw the deepening and mellowing of love over time, love between people who have weathered conflicts, learned from the challenges they faced and and grown together. If so, we are likely to reach our adult years understanding what loves both asks of us and offers in reward. "

When what has been helpful to navigate life is no longer working, symptoms may show up in the form of sadness, depression, anxiety, stress, physical ailments, feelings of isolation, or an overwhelm of emotions that may be difficult to manage alone.
