**OPENINGS FOR SEVERAL NEW CLIENTS NOW, NO WAITLIST It can feel like you're alone even in a room full of people when you are experiencing problems with feeling low, difficult relationships or worrying everyday. It is exhausting to just get through each day and something has got to change, but what? Therapy is in a safe warm atmosphere and space, to get to know yourself and understand what you can change and what you can learn to cope better with, at your pace. I am fully present and listen actively and compassionately to hear your story, support your strengths you know you have and discover the strengths you forgot or didn't realize you have. The first level of healing is just talking. Verbalizing what you are experiencing allows for unprocessed emotions to be recognized and allowed to be felt and integrated into your bigger life perspectives! I provide psychoeducation about your brain and about patterns that may have developed during your youth that possibly no longer serve you or make sense! I encourage you to be free and open to new methods for coping and I support you exploring subtle to large changes that may be exactly the thing that sets you free to be yourself, the self you knew you could be, that you have missed, the real you.

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

Anxiety & Stress, Depression, Women's Issues, Couples Therapy, Addiction, Families with autistic children, Older Adults, Artists or Creative people, Self Esteem

My Therapy Focus

I provide couples therapy based on Gottman and Perel incredible evidence-based healing relationship knowledge.

I work with people who have anxiety, depression and all mood issues using the most cutting-edge knowledge from neuroscience and psychotherapy for these issues.

I work with families who have a child with autism to help them to process the many emotions and challenges that can occur in the family so they can be as healthy as they can function at their best, to be the super moms and dads that they are!

One of my absolute favorite issues to help with is any type of addiction because it is highly treatable and experts like myself are so needed for this vulnerable group of wonderful people!

When addiction to people, substances, work, shopping, food, and anything else is given up, you can be left with...choice. That can be very overwhelming when you have been avoiding the discomfort of coping with the risks of self-determination for so long. The addiction guided your choices. You may have stayed in relationships that are clearly not healthy when your head is more clear, or you may realize that you never pursued your goals because you were busy being addicted to someone else's needs. Whatever negative consequences that you came to accept to live with active addiction, you have them at your feet now.

Help from peers going through similar revelations and challenges in a 12 step group can be very empowering and comforting now!

Therapy is a focused time to take control of your experience by choosing what you have choice over now. Therapy can also help you process your feelings about those painful things that you are not in control of so that you have a new perspective which is not emotionally overwhelming anymore. The negative things become a part of your history which informs your future but does not control it or fuel addictions. Recovery and real meaningful and grateful lives happen every single day all over the world when people break free from addictions. Your life is an adventure worth having fully.
