In pain and struggle are also resilience, strength and even opportunity. Engaging in a therapeutic relationship is an act of courage and hope that can lead to relief and lasting change. You may be experiencing loneliness, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, low self esteem, loss, creative blocks or the effects of trauma and oppression. Maybe you are just not where you would like to be in your life. Therapy can help to create a more fulfilling life in part by deepening self knowledge, increasing resilience and mitigating the effects of early life experiences.

No one comes to therapy because they want their lives to stay exactly the same. I believe that therapy is about transformation. I enjoy working with individuals who are looking to evolve and grow, to understand themselves and their motivations so that they can make lasting changes. Whether you feel motivated to do so now right now or are hoping to find that motivation, therapy can help.

We all struggle in life and are not meant to do it alone. Things really do get easier when we share our struggles and are received without shame or judgment.

I believe the relationships with those we care about -family members, friends, co-workers, and romantic partners - form a significant portion, even a majority, of our lifelong happiness and sense of fulfillment. Our relationship experiences influence our self-perception, confidence, and feelings of security. Many of us seek therapy because we have difficulty identifying, understanding, or coping with our own (and significant others') emotional experiences, and we feel unequipped to communicate our feelings and needs to the important people in our lives.

Together we can explore the narratives and relational patterns that may be getting in the way of our personal growth or intimacy with other. Through a somatic approach (integration of mind-heart-body), we arrive into a more empowered and embodied sense of being.

I believe therapy is a place where one can get unconditional support to find one's true self, and find guidance to blossom to one's full capacity. Most of us struggle, as we stray from our original path, and our inner compass informs us of this. Therapy offers a sanctuary, where you can honestly face and better understand how you struggle, and how you can more fully connect with yourself and others. We do this by talking, feeling, and sensing through your experience, in a safe, supportive environment. It is based on trust and respect. This is a vulnerable, challenging and deeply rewarding process.
