Life is difficult. We all struggle at times and need help to find our way. This is a safe place to sit with our doubts and insecurities...no judgement... on the way to healing and developing into the person you most want to be. You can live the life you want.
If you're feeling curious ... what is therapy like? Do I have to be facing a crisis? If I've had therapy before, could there be more to it? Could there be unconscious programming that keeps me repeating familiar patterns? You're right - there are programed ways of seeing and feeling that can be discovered through our emotions and physical sensations. Let's explore ...
If you're feeling frustrated ... if your relationship isn't what it could be (or used to be). What happened to our love and how did we get here? Even though we we are good and caring people and we try so hard, we can't seem to connect anymore ... It is possible to untangle the web between you to create a secure bond. Let's figure this out ...
If you've been traumatized in relationships or in specific circumstances ... you may find that even innocent reminders bring back overwhelming feelings. You may naturally want to avoid anything that reminds you or shut down feelings that may feel threatening. This is not territory to tackle alone ... We can go slowly together to understand what you endured. Many have been surprised at what strengths they uncover along the way and how the nervous system can heal. We can start when you're ready ...
If you're feeling hopeless ... do you find that you have mood swings that feel too strong to handle or crave a substance or activity that gives temporary relief? You're hurting and it's hard to know where to turn? ... Then you've come to the right place!

I use methods such as EMDR to overcome trauma and PTSD. I am Certified in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) that applies attachment theory and the science of emotion to unravel stuck places in relationships. I add Mindfulness, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Experiential Therapy to use what happens in the present moment as a doorway to new psychological and emotional resources.
Although therapy in person is my preference, life is complex, so I also provide sessions over a secure internet platform.
