Do you find yourself struggling with people pleasing, shame, or an insecure attachment style, and are ready to explore & heal these parts of yourself? Many of my clients live with overwhelming sensations in their bodies, romantic & familial relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, perfectionism or people-pleasing tendencies, and/or grew up in dysfunctional, unsupportive, or codependent environments.
Are you stressed? Are you finding it hard to navigate life? Are your relationships suffering? If you responded "yes" to any of these questions, I'd love to help you! Stress, anxiety, depression, and other issues can make life challenging. Dealing with it all can feel overwhelming. You don't have to go it alone when counseling is available. (Now accepting clients in Louisiana and New Jersey!!)
Trauma and pain from past and present experiences can stop your life in its tracks, leaving you stuck in the same patterns, of thinking, feeling and behaving that eventually lead to building a life that is less than what you've hoped for. With some guidance you can pause, learn tools, gain insights and power where and how to change your life's direction. I honor the courage and vulnerability it takes to ask for help, to look at our wounds, to embrace the messy parts of our lives.
Is the word ‘therapy’ making you hit the brakes? If the very thought makes you cringe a little you’re not alone, and you’re exactly who I’d love to meet! Do you consider yourself a 'people pleaser'? Are you stuck in repetitive relationship patterns? Do you shut down or bend the truth to avoid conflict? Feel deficient or disappointed in yourself? Bottle up feelings until you explode? If so, we should connect! I help folks with relational and attachment trauma, and codependent behavior patterns.
What would your life be like if you could reignite the spark with your partner, strengthen the bond with your family members, and enjoy happier relationships? Whether through individual, couples, or family therapy, I can help you learn skills and tools to communicate effectively, resolve conflicts, rebuild trust, and bring more joy and connection into your relationships. I warmly embrace LGBTQIA+, trans, poly, and kinky folk, sex workers, and people w/ disabilities or HIV.
If you're feeling lost, confused, or dissatisfied with your life, you're in good company! Life can be difficult and painful for all of us at times, and exploring the big (and small) questions with someone supportive and compassionate can help. I work best with people who are curious about themselves and ready to take responsibility in their lives.
