“You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop.”-Rumi. You matter. What you think and feel matters. How you are treated matters. What you have been through matters. Perhaps you are a new mom, feeling overwhelmed and scared to admit things aren’t picture perfect. Perhaps you’re going though a hard transition, and feeling alone, lost, or confused. Maybe you’re no longer sure a relationship, or a job, is right for you, and are tired of not feeling seen or heard, valued or understood. Maybe constant worrying, or a hurtful past, is keeping you from living your life the way you want-with laughter, love, and hope.

Please be aware that I am currently not accepting new patients. I think a lot about wounds from the past, our traumas, and the way they get in the way of living the life that we want. For many it is really hard to recognize when these show up but often we can begin to notice when we are "triggered", when an intense emotion hijacks us and we find ourselves at the mercy of our reactivity. It can be so painful and overwhelming. Over time we are all capable of "unpacking" the thoughts, feelings and experiences that have come to shape us.

With nearly 20 years experience in the field, I have a deep understanding of the needs, struggles and hopes of my patients, as well as that which heals and inspires them. I believe clients benefit most from an engaged partner on their journey, rather than a passive listener. I believe that you are the expert on you, and as a counselor and PA, my goal is to help you find the answers and hope inside of you to heal. I believe that people are individuals and should be treated as such, so I do not employ a cookie cutter approach to treatment. My clients truly value that.

Are you feeling increasingly lonely, stuck, or overwhelmed? While we are built to survive and adapt, all of us at some point will likely struggle with change, loss, traumatic stress, intrusive worries, mood swings, relationship difficulties, or self-defeating patterns. We look inside and out for support, relief, and perspective, to help us at work, school, home and in-between. This search can often be exausting and frustrating, which can lead to the wise and couragous choice to ask for help.

Bad things have happened to you and you wonder if life will ever get better. You desperately want happiness, but it always feels out of reach. You feel irritable and overwhelmed by worries and your relationships are suffering because others just don’t get it. You're trying to hold it together, doing the best you can, but you feel like it's never good enough. You can’t stop thinking about the past even though you try. You wish you could just "get over it", you're angry that you can't, and you're wondering if you'll ever feel normal. More than anything you want to feel connected to others and start feeling excited about life!

Sometimes we all need to be heard. We need someone to hold space for us so that we can share our experiences and process our hurt and losses. Parents, caregivers and those in helping professions spend a great deal of their time holding space for others. Doing this work can sometimes leave a person feeling empty, tired, and unappreciated. Helping, caregiving and parenting often trigger intense feelings related to past difficulties. The role of a parent, caregiver and/or helper can expose one to new trauma that needs and deserves to be addressed. You deserve to be witnessed and heard the way you witness, hear and honor others.
