We all experience periods of struggle in our lives. Sometimes life’s challenges can leave us overwhelmed and exhausted, feeling lost.

There is new research and some time-honored practices that can help.

A therapist can look through the struggle and see your strengths. She can point out resources you might not know you have.

Whether you are struggling with losses, anxiety, the trap of perfectionism, depression, childhood abuse, or relationship strains, we are here to support you on your journey toward healing and growth.

This is the time to make sense of your life, and to live it wholeheartedly.

Everyone has unique strong points and we have an inner drive toward using them. We want to be appreciated for exactly who we are, without hiding or pretending. We want to relax into our own shoes, put down the weight of others’ expectations, and drop the limiting beliefs we have adopted.

That’s when we can pick up our real work in the world and begin living authentically. That’s when our relationships are filled with true emotional connection and comfort.

Even if it’s hard to hear that true voice, if you’ve gotten into a habit of letting others dictate your choices, if your confidence has been lost under the weight of life’s everyday pressures, I still believe you have real power that is unique to you, and I would like to help you find it.

Using traditional talk therapy, mindfulness, and evidenced-based trauma therapies like EMDR and Brainspotting, I have worked with people who suffer from anxiety, depression, phobias, childhood abuse, sexual trauma, some eating disorders, relationship strain, traumatic stress, and traumatic losses.

Have you been defining yourself by your weaknesses?

I would like to help you turn that around.

What is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.
