Wise decisions are made by observing, noticing, and choosing to act in ways that move us toward what’s important.

When things get hard, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s really important to us. The things that cause us pain often distract us from where we really want to be going in our lives. For example, your anxiety about meeting new people might feel so overwhelming and frightening that you forget why meeting new people is important to you in the first place. Or maybe you feel like your depression is too powerful for you to get out of bed in the morning. If you feel like anxiety, depression or other painful emotions get in the way of living your life fully, then therapy can often help you move toward reclaiming choice and power in your life.

In therapy, I try to help people reconnect with what they value in life, whether that’s forging new relationships, starting a new career, or diving into a hobby. If you decide to meet with me, we’ll spend time figuring out what really inspires and motivates you. I’ll also be a reliable sounding board for new experiences, thoughts, and feelings that might come up. I seek to offer support, acceptance, and compassion in therapy, and to help the people I work with develop those things for themselves as well. I enjoy seeing people come to regard themselves with kindness, and I believe we all have the ability to make meaningful change.
