Let's find our way back to you.

I help professionals, just like you, who want the level of depth and interest in their relationships that they have found in their careers. We’ll work together to discover what it means to have authentic connection to yourself and others without feeling like you'll never be fully known or understood.

On the outside it seems like you have it all together, but deep down it feels like you are falling apart. Maybe you have realized that you’re tired of not feeling confident in yourself and your abilities, even though your motivated dedication has led to great success. You’ve felt alone in your struggles and you find yourself longing for deeper connection to yourself and others. You’re ready to understand just what it is that is holding you back. 

The struggles of anxiety and wavering self-confidence get in the way of life. You find yourself stuck in old patterns that you're ready to move on from, but you just can't figure out how to. You aren't living the kind of authentic life that you hoped for, and you feel like you're failing at being the partner, parent, and friend you wanted to be.  

My clients have said they felt guilty about the frustration and overwhelm they were feeling before they came to see me. They worried that they would never find the fulfillment in their relationships that they had found in their careers. And they were pretty certain that they would enter therapy just to find out that there was something fundamentally wrong with them. The shame was like a boulder they couldn't budge, and it was suffocating them!

Like my clients, you deserve to feel authentically you in every aspect of life. You've worked so hard to be successful, and that sense of genuine fulfillment is not out of your reach. If you want to feel deeply and authentically connected to yourself and others, I'd love to help you get there.

We'll find our way back to you. I can help. Call now.

Compassion. Care. Connection.

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, my role is to facilitate exploration that gets to the root of distress.

Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in our sessions I help you facilitate  lasting transformation by gaining insight and awareness around your thoughts, feelings, and actions. This journey is hard work, but you won’t be alone. You can be assured that you will be heard and understood right where you are at.

Our first few sessions are dedicated to telling your story and seeing if we’re a good fit.There is no obligation to keep coming- just space for your voice to be heard and understood.

Call now for your free consultation.
