Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and the ways I can help you build a more fulfilling and joyous life. I often hear individuals say the reason they do not seek therapy is because, “my problems are not significant enough” or “I should be able to cope on my own.” What I have found is that these and many other beliefs get in the way of finding our happiness.

I work with individuals seeking to create meaningful and lasting change in their life. I am committed to providing a space that feels positive, comforting, and empowering. My goal is to help you identify and create the change you’ve longed for as we focus on your strengths and talents.

We will work together to help you heal from the past, learn new ways of approaching challenges, and improve your relationships with others. We will focus on solutions and strategies to help you resolve day-to-day challenges. However, we will also incorporate therapy that will bring healing from past hurts to help you address feelings of resentments, guilt or regret.

Special Areas of Expertise:

Depression - Life can sometimes leave us feeling unmotivated, down, or just “off.” I can help you identify and address these difficulties as you gather insight about yourself. Through our work you will build new and positive ways of dealing with life challenges without the burden of depression.

Anxiety - Many of us get nervous or anxious from time to time. However, when anxiety becomes so frequent that it begins to take over our lives, we exhaust our ability to cope. If you constantly experience worry, we can work together to help you re-frame uncertainty and create a life free of anxiety.

Stress - Some stress can be beneficial, producing a boost of energy to help us get through challenging situations. However, too much stress can have detrimental consequences to our physical and emotional health. We can work to find positive, healthy ways to cope in order to drastically reduce your stress levels and help you build resilience for future demands.

Relationships - Do you ever feel misunderstood? Do you feel you give much more to relationships than you get? Many of these issues may result from unhealthy relationships modeled for us growing up, which we unintentionally adopt. I will help you understand your own relationship patterns in order to guide you to a healthier sense of self. I can help you find balance in your relationships, whether it’s with a romantic partner, family or friends.

Self-Esteem - Do you find it difficult to quiet the critical voice inside your head? Do you find yourself second-guessing everything you do? If you are like most people, you know your inner critic all too well. It judges you, doubts you, belittles you, and constantly tells you that you are not good enough. Television, movies and social media only feed further into this problem. We are often seeking ways to improve some aspects of our lives. Let’s break this automatic tendency and help you quiet your inner critic.

Motivation - For many people, motivation can be elusive. It comes and goes unpredictably, and sometimes does not show up at all. When we feel stuck, we can get disconnected from our purpose and dispassionate about our lives. Lack of motivation can result in procrastination, lack of follow through, and even boredom. I can help you reach your full potential by helping you clarify life goals and create strategies for overcoming the roadblocks that keep you stuck.
