I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience. I treat both adults and older adolescents, and offer individual, group, couple and family therapy.
"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."
Realizing you need help is a big moment. Whether you are experiencing pain only recently, opr you have lived with anxiety and depression for years, I can help you build a safe place to feel and explore the parts of yourself that want to thrive. It may be shame, embarrassment or deep depression that has kept you isolated, but upon entering therapy know you will have begun the process of getting to a lighter, fuller life.
Many people reach a point in their lives where old habits of managing thoughts and feelings no longer work. We are mistakenly led to believe that a frenzy of activity will quiet our unrest; however what lies beneath is a range of psychological challenges such as depression, overwhelming stress and anxiety, panic attacks, perfectionism and addictions. Suppressing emotion simply makes life more difficult and hinders our relationships. By talking about those thoughts and feelings, you can free yourself from their crippling effects.
Through the healing process, you can build confidence, develop loving and satisfying connections with others, and create a life of greater contentment and success.
It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
