Intrusive thoughts and painful feelings seem to be taking over your life and it’s impossible to stop them. Worry, self-doubt, fear, panic...feeling or wishing like your life should be different or easier, that YOU should be different, comparing yourself to others seem to have it all together.

Do you remember when you stopped living and started coping instead?
We often forget that life isn't just about getting by, but really living. When depression seems to be at its strongest, it can feel like there's no way out and nothing we can do - an endless cycle of sadness, inertia and pain. But if you are ready for a change no matter how small the step in your current circumstances, then know this: There is hope in every tomorrow even when our minds attempt to convince us otherwise! Now is always the time to take action towards creating positive transformation in both yourself and your life. Read more...
Women's issues are often relationship issues. Your relationships are hurting and you are in pain too! How did you get here? You always thought that you were doing "the right thing," making thoughtful decisions, and now it seems like none of that matters. Read more...
I come here to connect with remarkable women like you, who have taken the leap and jumped into some serious work with me. Women who experience anxiety, depression, effects of past trauma, relationship problems...because most of these symptoms and issues are connected to something deeper.
Over the years of providing psychotherapy and exploring various therapeutic approaches, I have learned that the most integral part of the healing process lies in the strong and trustworthy relationship that I form with my clients. The trust and genuine connection is the foundation for this process to work. And that is what I strive for in each session - to create a space in which healing can begin...a space that can help you
heal yourself from the inside out
If you are ready to embark on this challenging and inspiring journey of discovery, I am here for you and will be there with you all the way.
I believe that good therapy leads you to your own answers and resources. I believe that good therapy gets to the root of your problems and helps you understand how the past is still sometimes running your present. Good therapy is safe, supportive, and challenging at the same time! It pushes you the edge of your comfort zone because that may be the only way to change and heal.
We will focus on identifying your patterns, shifting core beliefs and working through painful feelings, such as shame and anger, and all the other deeply uncomfortable emotions that continue to shape your way of being. And mindfulness and body-based practices will also play a big role in our sessions, allowing you to create deeper connection between your body and mind. As we sit down together and look over your life, you will be able to heal, discover what's important to you, and design your present and future in the way that's true to you.
My intention and hope is that you will leave therapy with renewed sense of self-acceptance and self-trust so that you can feel empowered to make the best, most authentic choices for yourself. Your first step is to select the right therapist for you (not a small task at all...I know), so if you feel like you and I could work well together, please reach out. Call me or email me today!
