Dealing with the daily struggles of life doesn't have to be faced alone. Focusing on self-growth and resiliency leads to tangible changes in our lives and fosters a mind-body connection. Whether you want to focus on a specific issue or seek proactive change in your life, seeking help is the first step. I'm here to guide that change while helping us focus on measurable results to improve your life. Please scroll to the bottom of the page and enter your contact information to have a conversation.
Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
Do you suffer from chronic pain or anxiety? Have you had panic attacks? Can you fall asleep easily? I help with chronic pain management, anxiety (general anxiety, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder), insomnia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Do you have a habit you want to stop? I also help with hair pulling, skin picking, weight loss management or stopping smoking with hypnosis.
"Therapy is for All" and every client should be met with knowledge, compassion and skill. Clients experiencing caregiving distress and grief. Or combating co-morbidities of financial and mental distress. Clients who identify as LGBTQ+. Clients struggling with perinatal mental health issues. And so much more. I've seen firsthand how mental health effects every aspect of my clients lives. And I've also seen that my client's have an amazing capacity for growth and healing.
Professionally, I have been working in the mental health field since 2010. This experience has ranged across the span of mental health crisis work in community mental health, work with older adults in long term care, and currently in inpatient psychiatric work as the Manager of Psychiatric Programming. Collectively, these experiences have given me a deep understanding of the impact of mental health across all systems and remind me of the great resiliency of individuals.
Are you wanting a better relationship but just do not know where to begin? Sometimes when a couple just verbalize each others perspectives, hearing something new may change how they interact and move forward. Having new tools to communicate and see your relationship help tremendously.
Are you struggling in your relationships with your children, spouse, or other family members? Does self-care and balance feel impossible? Maybe you've read all the self-help books and are just left feeling confused about how to make a change in your life or maybe you're just feeling so overwhelmed you don't even know where to start. Maybe anxiety and depression have you feeling confused about where to even start and deep breathing just isn't cutting it anymore.
As a proud ally and member of the queer community, I specialize in therapy for diverse individuals and relationships. Whether you're queer, transgender, non-binary, or exploring open, non-monogamous, or sex-positive/kink dynamics, my practice is a safe, affirming space. I'm dedicated to supporting clients from all backgrounds on their unique journeys toward healing and self-discovery.
