My Approach to Helping
Feeling like "no matter what you do you can't win?" with your partner or parent? Dealing w shame, anxiety, depression, codependency, lack of confidence & self esteem, always worried what "they" are going to think or do? Have you ever wondered if your parent or partner was a narcissist? Or "just a really selfish person?"
Wondered if things would ever get better? Or if you'd ever stop feeling so hopeless and stuck? You can't know what you don't know. So you can't change or affect it. Let's get you more information, better tools, a chance to be heard, and the opportunity to be "seen". The chance to be whole, to feel your emotions and not cringe. The chance to learn about what you need to actually get out of the eye of the tornado in your life. The chance for hope.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
is the gift of being trusted with other's stories, and the opportunity to help them continue to build their life story, the way that they want to. It is such a joy and privilege to get to walk with someone through tough times and joyous times, to hold out a hopeful vision and be a trusted listener. I promise to listen and to give you truthful feedback and encouragement if you promise to show up and do the hard work of growing.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Usually, when we've been thinking about it, it's time to go. Later, you'll probably wonder why you didn't go sooner. Even if you are wanting couples counseling and your partner won't go, it is helpful to go yourself. We can work together for perspective, increasing satisfaction in your life and building skills. You don't have to wait or depend on someone else to change in order to make your own changes.
