Living authentically can be scary, rather intimidating. With support of a therapist, individuals can learn to accept, even embrace, the vulnerability that the process towards authenticity requires. Within a supportive therapeutic relationship, clients can explore personal beliefs and develop their identity. Many individuals struggle with processing life events but it doesn't have to be done alone or involve constant suffering. Life events can be difficult, even "positive" ones such as birth of a child; postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety are real and it doesn't have to ruin your experience as a parent!

I enjoy working with individuals who are looking for support to manage situational stressors, life transitions and minimal, mild to severe mental illness. I work with youth to individuals in later life stages. I am comfortable working with individuals who are at risk, experience suicidality, self harm behaviors and compulsive behaviors. I focus on supporting an individual where they are at in life, letting them identify their needs and where they want to start in therapy. I am person centered and value my clients involvement in their treatment.

In a world that is habitually fast-paced and anonymous, it is easy to lose connection with ourselves and each other. Are you feeling disconnected or stuck? Like the parts of your life are out of sync? Having difficulties in relationships? Typically, I work with people experiencing disconnection and "stuck" feelings which often show up during times of transition and change within the context of significant relationships including parents, partners, children and friends. I also work with people around the stuck places connected to various trauma experiences.
