My Approach to Helping

You’ve excelled in so many ways, but your inner critic is still loud. It never lets you forget when you’ve seemingly missed the mark. In friendships and romantic relationships, you wish there was a guide on how to finally get things “right”. What makes you really productive at work or school, just doesn’t seem to carry over into your personal life. Summer doesn't feel like a relief for you. You continue to overanalyze everything and wrestle with not feeling "good enough". It’s hard to stop spinning when the wheels get started. You become stuck in your head and withdrawn from the life and relationships you actually want.

You now have the courage to imagine something more, because you're tired of auto-piloting through life. You imagine another life for yourself that’s more enjoyable, fulfilling, and balanced. You want your feelings on the inside to finally start matching your life on the outside. I'd love to help you get out of your head and more connected to everyday life.

Not only do I have years of clinical experience to assist you with this, but I personally know the courage it takes to get past stuck places like your well-being depends on it. As your Therapist, you can expect me to be warmly engaging, attentive, and direct. Now, let's get you unstuck. Visit my website or call to schedule!

More Info About My Practice

Many new clients want to get past the stuck places in their personal lives, careers, and relationships. I help them arrive at a place of balance and fulfillment by treading these challenging areas with them and helping them increase the skills and awareness needed to go out and start living the life they actually want.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

These may also be individuals who are looking to heal from wounds of complex trauma experienced from past abuses and a childhood history of emotional neglect. I help them recognize what they might not have considered being experiences of trauma and its present-day knotting effect on their lives.
