Specialties

I support people in their desire to overcome their past and live fully in the present.

In our society, many of us are never taught how to express our thoughts and emotions in a healthy way.  We’re told to just “get over it” or “suck it up.”  We start to think that emotions are bad, especially distressing ones such as depression or anxiety.  But emotions are our friends!  Yes, even depression and anxiety.  They serve as warnings about our environment, to activate the fight, flight, freeze response to keep us safe.  But without the ability to process and release these helpful emotions, they get “stuck” and become maladaptive and overwhelming.  We can experience panic, helplessness, hopelessness, and difficulty with impulse control.

Happiness is the journey – not the end destination.  There might be days you won’t want to come to session.  There might be days when you just want to give up.  I get it.  My ideal client understands that change takes time, patience, and practice.

Mental health is much like physical fitness.  You can’t go to the gym once a week and get that six-pack or be able to lift your body weight.  You have to practice!  Just talking won’t make your problems change or go away.  You have control over how you think about and respond to your environment, but old habits die hard. The good news is, through commitment to change and daily practice, you can build new pathways in your brain, so that your instinct is to respond in a healthy way instead of your old, unhelpful ways.
