“ Many times when we help we do not really serve… Serving is also different from fixing… When we fix others, we may not see their hidden wholeness or trust the integrity of the life in them. Fixers trust their own expertise. When we serve, we see the unborn wholeness in others; we collaborate with it and strengthen it. Others may then be able to see their wholeness for themselves for the first time.”

Grief & Loss
It’s difficult to know how to make space for your feelings when you are experiencing profound loss. Often, it’s hard to even recognize our feelings of grief- the experience of grief can feel so confusing and overwhelming. In therapy, we have an opportunity to feel into your confusing feelings together, and we will work as a team to identify and acknowledge your process- and be with the feelings as they come.
Do you find yourself doing the same thing over and over again in relationships? Like maybe you date the 'same kind of person' and it never works out. Or you make it to a certain point in your relationships and then they always end. Or maybe committing to any kind of intimate relationship has you feeling suffocated? These experiences are most likely the result of learned relational patterns, that can be reworked in therapy.
I love supporting people in their 20's and 30's in knowing themselves more fully through learning how to recognize and express their needs, while also gaining clarity around what they want. Whether it is creating the romantic relationship you are longing for, or moving closer to your heart-felt purpose in your work or creative life, our efforts can support you in following your heart's desires.
We all know how difficult adolescence can be. I am here to support teens, pre-teens, and their families in coping with the ups and downs of the teenage years. I work with sensitive and creative teens experiencing depression and anxiety, who are grappling with expressing who they are, and trying to find healthier ways to cope with the stressors in their lives.
