The Potential to Be Your Best Self

We all want to live full, meaningful lives. The obstacles that stand in our way can stem from different sources, but tend to manifest as negative thoughts and feelings. Often, these thoughts and feelings trigger automatic responses that can emotionally paralyze us with anxiety, depression, and other negative sensations.

I work from the belief that we all have the potential to be our best selves. The work begins by creating a safe space where you can slow down and gain insight into challenging thoughts and feelings. As you gain insight into your automatic responses, I work with you to manage your thoughts and feelings in positive ways that empower you to feel good about who you are.

My clients include adults, adolescents, couples, and groups. I specialize in depressive disorders, stress disorders, anxiety, and relationship issues. In all these situations, when you gain the skills to cope with strong emotions or triggering events, you can respond to your experiences with greater freedom and more successfully navigating thoughts and feelings from the best parts of your self.
