By starting therapy you're courageously taking responsibility for yourself and acting on hope for a better life. I help you to become more of who you are at your core. My job is to be an independent champion for you. To help you sift through your thoughts, your emotions, and your actions to get to what isn't working for you which allows you to make the necessary changes. We all have one life and the biggest gift we can give ourselves is to live it the best we possibly can. I'm honored to walk and guide you through this process of becoming the stronger and happier version of yourself.
Working from an integrative framework, I take mind, body, and spirit into account as we approach your difficulties together. Life is long and we all struggle sometimes with the hard parts of being human...confusion, conflicts phobias, changes, anxieties, sadness, grief. My clients are invited to bring whatever struggles they have to therapy and to say whatever they've never been able to say that's been a burden for them. If you feel it or think it, we can work with it.
While I love working with individuals, I'm equally passionate about helping couples. Be it finding solutions in a well-established relationship or guiding proactive work for couples preparing for a strong marriage, I help couples to have happier, long-lasting partnerships. Navigating through the loaded relationship issues of sex, money, children, and in-laws, there are many opportunities for couples to use their struggles as a tool to build intimacy instead of weaken their connection. I help them to learn the unique way each other wants to be loved and cared for. The greatest gift to give or be given is to be known and loved for both our strengths and weaknesses.
MOTHERHOOD + IDENTITY
Wanting to be a parent but not being able to make it happen is so frustrating, isolating, and emotionally loaded. Navigating your way through complicated conception or infertility is jumbled with huge decisions, struggling to stay connected in your relationship, feeling left out, and balancing hope against self-protection. In this group you will benefit from the support of other women who understand a rough road to motherhood as you process your feelings and find your way through.
There's no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one. Finding "your way" of being a mom can be tricky. How are you different and how are you the same as you were before kids? How do you navigate being a mom, wife, working person, friend, and individual in a way you feel fulfilled by and proud of?In this group you will connect with other moms, process your feelings, and manage your anxiety as you find your answers to these questions and redefine your sense of self.
