Usually people come to therapy with some kind of emotional pain they want to get out of (totally understandable!). Your pain may show itself in dissatisfaction or fighting in relationships, feeling irritable or depressed, angry, anxious, or not enjoying things like before.

Everyone has "stuff" in their life, but my hope is that everyone - and YOU - also know that you are not alone and that you do not have to feel this way forever.

I am committed to working with people either individually, as a couple, or family who want help to change the negative circumstances and patterns they are in.

My goal is to join alongside you to really understand what's going on for you and to identify any deeper issues in order to heal body, mind, and spirit. Through this type of integrative therapy, you may feel relief in being understood (sometimes for the first time), and then be able to create long-lasting changes for the best life you can live.

Personal growth is a wonderful by-product from this process that transforms unconscious suffering into conscious growth.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy can help first by helping you know that you are NOT alone, that you matter, and that you are understood. This is huge in a world of quick fixes and deep disconnect.

Second, psychotherapy gives you the opportunity to have someone with education, training, experience, and expertise who is not in your personal life work with you to identify and understand what you need to get out of pain and create the life that you want, whether it is in your personal relationships or the workplace, and then to guide you to achieve it.

Third, psychotherapy allows you to have time dedicated solely to you with the main purpose of helping you feel better, have better relationships, and meet the goals that you want to achieve.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

So often people come in to my office saying that they had wanted to go to therapy a long time ago, but that they thought it was for "really messed up people." This is disappointing because nothing could be further from the truth.

I love therapy! I love being the therapist and I love being the client.

The truth is that most people do not go to therapy or counseling or psychotherapy or whatever you want to call it because they are inherently flawed and sick. They go in because they recognize the value in getting help from an educated, trained, and licensed mental health professional whose whole purpose is to assess, join, and help the person out of pain. This is not flawed or weak, but rather brave and smart.

I witness many, many people find their strength, wisdom, clarity, and emotional freedom during therapy. This is no coincidence.
