Feeling overwhelmed, sad, or anxious can really get in the way of happiness and it's so important to me that you are not struggling alone. I help people by making them feel understood and respected while working collaboratively to address the issues in their lives that are keeping them down.
Being allowed to work with you during a very fragile time in your life is a privilege to me because I know how difficult therapy can be. Like so many other people, I myself have engaged in therapy and being pushed out of your comfort zone is scary. Therefore, it's so important to me that when a person comes to me for help they feel safe, respected, and heard. I have 10 years experience as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing therapy for people struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, low self esteem, and grief just to name a few. I am also an Integrative Wellness coach, which allows me to work with clients in a very strategic and goal-oriented manner.
I have helped many people just like you get back on track and find peace. Using various therapeutic techniques and sometimes even homework, we'll work together on the pieces of your life that feel difficult. I know it's scary to make the decision to start therapy, but you deserve to be happy and more settled in your life and if your struggles are keeping you from that, it's time to make a change. Call me today and we can start together.

More Info About My Practice
In addition to working with people who struggle with depression, anxiety, and low self esteem, I also specialize in working with people who are living with Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Working with people who struggle with low self-esteem is a passion of mine. It has always affected me so much when I hear the negative way people talk about themselves. It's amazing how easy it is to minimize all our strengths but maximize all our "weaknesses" or as I like to call them "areas of improvement". Dealing with low self-esteem and low self worth impacts everything in our lives. We would never talk to someone else the way that we talk to ourselves, but it's usually so ingrained in us to treat ourselves like this that we don't know any different. I can teach you the difference and if you work with me, you will learn to appreciate your areas of improvement and find your self worth again.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Therapy can literally change your life if you let it. I know that sounds dramatic and probably far fetched, but it's true. The reason is actually quite simple. We learn to recognize that we can accomplish things. We learn to see that we are worthy of good things happening to us. We learn to communicate with people in a different and more productive way. The best part of therapy is that when we shift even one small thing in our life, we can see the other parts fall into place. Now obviously, doing that work isn't simple; it's really hard, but when you see how beneficial those kinds of changes are for your life, you will find yourself feeling kind of excited to start your journey.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Usually we contemplate going to therapy when things feel out of control or if our life just isn't in the place that we want it to be. The problem is it's so scary because it's out of our comfort zone and we don't like to be out of our comfort zone. When you find yourself in this position, the best thing to ask yourself is "what is scarier?" Is it scarier to talk with someone who can potentially help you to get your life back on track or is it scarier to think about your life remaining exactly as it is right now? Now I know that it sounds very simplistic when I put it that way, but the truth is when you picture what it would feel like to stay stuck, it will most likely remind you that you're stronger than you think you are and you can handle being out of your comfort zone.
Had a Negative Therapy Experience?
Most often when therapy isn't successful, it's because the client doesn't feel rapport or trust. I understand how hard it is to be vulnerable in front of another person and I feel privileged and humbled by your willingness to talk about your struggles and your desire to change.
What Makes up a Problem?
Anything in your life that you feel isn't working or could be made better.
