My Approach to Helping

What if I told you that:
Therapy can be common sense, practical and direct?
That we hold the answers for our own suffering within ourselves?
And that learning to treat ourselves with kindness can help us to open up--even fearlessly embrace-- our own pain. This can be your approach to change and help cease your struggle with anxiety, depression and all (the worries, discomfort, void and fear) that come with it. Self- compassion is the answer.

More Info About My Practice

If the harder you try to control your problems just seems to make your problems worse, I am here to help. I believe that controlling, getting rid of and avoiding our issues won't make them go away and can actually intensify the pain we feel. I have learned that instead of trying to erase our unwanted emotions-- conversely, by connecting with our own humanity, identifying what is important to us and learning to open up and even embrace our discomfort can help us relate to ourselves more positively. This can improve our overall sense of well-being and is a foundation for good mental health. If you're ready to take this journey, I am here for you.

My Therapy Focus

I believe that therapy should provide the neurobiological research-based tools we need to use when we encounter the same old horrible thoughts that plague us, have existed for as long as we can remember and that, in fact, make us human. The nagging, critical and judgmental voice in our head is not our boss- want to know what can you do about it? A lot.

If you are ready to address what you are tired of running away from, I will be here to meet you. A wise saying is "You have to walk through the mud to get to the lotus" and if you're willing, I am willing to walk with you because you can do it.
