My passion is to help others get “unstuck” no matter where you find yourself in your search for a life that is full of meaning, happiness, and success. There is much more to you than you could ever imagine! My goal is to help you uncover your true self beneath the layers of pain and the accumulated habits. Let me encourage you to take the leap toward discovering who you are in this world uniquely and how you can make a meaningful contribution to the planet in the way that you have always hoped! If you feel like you’re hitting a dead-end in reaching your “Big Dream”, experiencing loneliness, or are feeling trapped in worry about the future, I will help you find the keys to get out of your confinement. We all have stories – who we say we are and who others have told us we are – that dictate how we live our lives, how we interact with others, and how we see ourselves. These become self-fulfilling prophecies when left unchecked. Understanding our old stories and rewriting new narratives are essential to creating a meaningful and successful life. I am excited to create a space to talk and help those that are ready to step into the mysterious past, the powerful present, and the exciting future.
Since 2016, my clinical work has focused on a variety of presenting concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, PTSD, childhood abuse, grief/loss and personality disorders. I have worked with a variety of chronic pain and illness conditions including PCOS, mast cell disorders, MS, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis, immune deficiencies and many more. I believe that psychotherapy can be a way to gain a better understanding of oneself and provide an individual with insight into their own life. Having awareness surrounding one’s thoughts and feelings can lead to a more fulfilling and mindful existence. I believe that the therapeutic relationship formed with my clients can be in and of itself a healing experience and really a branching off point towards the road of self-discovery. The therapy room is truly a safe space to explore who you are and who you want to become.
Our unique human existence poses many challenges that invite opportunities for deep learning, healing, and transformation. When we open ourselves up to the lessons of our adversity rather than avoiding them, we unlock a landscape of new possibilities and new ways of being in relationships, in the world, and in our relationship with ourselves. While painful in the short-term, engaging with life’s challenges in this way can ultimately develop in us greater resiliency, deeper authenticity, and renewed vitality. My commitment is to empower and heal you by creating a safe and non-judgmental therapeutic environment to help you uncover your deepest truths and overcome your deepest fears. I will invite you into a more mindful and peaceful way of being as we help you heal using research proven therapeutic modalities such as CBT, psychodynamic therapy, and mindfulness practices. My goal is to offer acceptance and compassion even for the darkest parts of you so that you may learn to bring love and acceptance to all of you, thereby integrating yourself and alleviating the anxiety, depression, and misattunement that results from splitting off parts of yourself. Guiding you to discover all of the authentic parts of you that got lost along the way as a result of painful experiences, I will help you cultivate greater alignment between your values and true desires, and how you can embody them in your life.
