I am a unique kind of therapist who supports intuitive, sensitive people to feel less controlled by mood and anxiety and more empowered in career, relationships, and life. Whatever struggles you're facing, the connection between you and your therapist is the most important factor in whether therapy will work. Only when you feel understood and supported will you be comfortable talking openly.

Because of this, I try to create a relaxed and warm environment so that you feel respected, accepted, and heard. My approach is collaborative and conversational, and I focus on your strengths.

The people I help are working through an array of life challenges including trauma, anxiety, disordered eating/body image, mood issues and relationship struggles. I have advanced training in trauma treatment and couples therapy. I'm passionate about what I do and feel honored to be able to support people in learning and growing through challenging times.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

A number of benefits are available from participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, stress management, body image issues and creative blocks. Many people also find that counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the hassles of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution. The benefits you obtain from therapy depend on how well you use the process and put into practice what you learn. Some of the benefits available from therapy include:

-Attaining a better understanding of yourself, your goals and values
-Developing skills for improving your relationships
-Finding resolution to the issues or concerns that led you to seek therapy
-Learning new ways to cope with stress and anxiety
-Managing anger, grief, depression, and other emotional pressures
-Improving communications and listening skills
-Changing old behavior patterns and developing new ones
-Discovering new ways to solve problems in your family or marriage

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Everyone goes through challenging situations in life, and while you may have successfully navigated through other difficulties you've faced, there's nothing wrong with seeking out extra support when you need it. In fact, therapy is for people who have enough self-awareness to realize they need a helping hand, and that is something to be admired. You are taking responsibility by accepting where you're at in life and making a commitment to change the situation by seeking therapy. Therapy provides long-lasting benefits and support, giving you the tools you need to avoid triggers, re-direct damaging patterns, and overcome whatever challenges you face.
