"Are you constantly contradicting yourself? A part of you wants to grow and transform into your “true” self, but then you somehow feel as if you were self-sabotaging again. You question how you can work on yourself if you are the one also stopping the growth. Pablo Neruda’s poem "We Are Many" describes the internal conflict that many of us feel. As a psychotherapist, I noticed that my clients needed something more than just “talk therapy.” This realization led me to be formally trained in Internal Family Systems (IFS) that taught me that I can “befriend” the internal conflict and embrace it with love and compassion."

It's easy to lose ourselves in this process as we try to meet the expectations imposed on us by others. I provide a comfortable place where you can feel free to be your real, authentic self and experience a more clear connection to your life's purpose.

"Each of our lives tells a story. That story may have been affected by things outside our control. Counseling provides an opportunity for you to become more active in changing your narrative. You have the opportunity to deal with your story on your terms. We all hit rough spots along this journey. Some events can leave you shaken. Deciding to begin counseling is an important decision. Sometimes people just need someone there to listen, challenge them, serve as a guide, provide encouragement or be supportive and nurturing as they make changes in response to life or relationship demands.

Fear, guilt, embarrassment, and anger often are a normal part of the process of becoming aware of the need for change. Sometimes these feelings create a barrier to the necessary change that brings relief.
