My Approach

Life is hard. No one can make it through life without experiencing suffering. While suffering is part of the human experience, since it is personal and specific to each of us, it can feel lonely and isolating. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed or burdened with what you’ve experienced in life. Maybe you’re concerned that the trauma you’ve coped with will hold you back from a loving relationship or a successful career. You might be feeling lost or stuck, like you’re not sure which way to go, or what to do to feel happy. Working through grief, isolation, and suffering helps filter what matters to you the most. While experiencing hope and joy is possible in the midst of an unpredictable life, how do you get from feeling overwhelmed or burdened, to feeling connected to the people around you? If you’re trying to do this on your own, it’s easy to feel stuck and incapable of making the changes you know you need. If you’ve been searching for a way to dig deeper, find connection, or gain awareness, then I’d urge you to reach out. I’ll say it again, health and healing are for you. No matter your circumstance or your experience with therapy, getting started is courageous.

Take your next step toward growth.
