For many of us, painful lived experiences lie at the heart of our distress. Most of us have had to grapple with adversities such as difficulties within our families, with our peers, with other important figures, or even with painful messages embedded in our culture. Many of us have also experienced significant losses, major life transitions, and traumatic events. These experiences can leave us with a wide range of psychological symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, addictive behaviors, eating and body image concerns, low self-esteem, and others. Left untreated, these symptoms often shape our decisions as we try to guard against further pain, resulting in life patterns that feel familiar, constraining, and unsatisfying.

Therapy can help us connect how the challenges we have faced contribute to our current symptoms and struggles. With this insight we can become ?unstuck? and start to feel hopeful that life can be experienced more richly. Through a collaborative approach I help people develop new perspective, flexible approaches to present-day challenges, and a sense of empowerment so that they can transform their hope into reality.
