    Helping You Reconnect and Repair Your Relationships  

    Welcome to a dedicated time and place where we can delve into the deeper parts of yourself. In our sessions, we step away from the rush of daily life and focus on your inner journey. Imagine this as a space where we cultivate growth, much like tending to a garden where we will explore your thoughts and emotions, uncovering insights and fostering personal development. 

    This is your time to plant seeds of change, nurture your well-being, and prune away what no longer serves you.

    Whether you’re seeking to heal from past wounds, manage current challenges, or envision and create a brighter future, this dedicated space is where we can work together to create a more fulfilling and resilient life, one step at a time.

    My goal is to create a non-judgmental space where we can explore these complexities together, empowering you to move forward in a healthier and more fulfilling direction. 

    Life Transitions

    In our sessions, we’ll create a supportive space to process these life transitions and find your way forward. We’ll explore the unique challenges of your situation and develop practical strategies to manage them. Whether adjusting to a new role, coping with loss, or navigating a major life change, we’ll work together to create a path that aligns with your goals.

    Creating a Life Worth Living

    Feeling stuck or unable to move forward in life can be incredibly frustrating and disheartening – especially when you feel like you’re failing to meet expectations or watching peers hit milestones. You might find yourself struggling to achieve independence, follow through on goals, or find a sense of purpose. This sense of “failure to launch” is more common than you might think and doesn’t define your value or future.

    In our sessions, we’ll create a supportive space where you can explore what’s holding you back without judgment. Together, we’ll identify the barriers that keep you from moving forward and develop practical strategies to overcome them. Whether it’s building confidence, improving time management, or finding motivation, we’ll work on creating a life that feels fulfilling and meaningful to you.

    Supporting LGBTQ+ Clients

    Living in a world that often prioritizes heteronormative perspectives can be exhausting and isolating, even if you are lucky enough to have supportive family members who do their best but often cause harm. This is a space where you can be yourself without having to explain or justify your identity, which may or may not be related to why you are seeking therapy.

    For those struggling with LGBTQ+ related challenges, I’m here to support you. You are amazing just the way you are, even if it doesn’t feel that way right now. Let’s work together to bring the deeper parts of you into the light and create the life you barely hope to dream about.

    Neurodiversity

    Life as a neurodiverse individual in a world that often doesn’t understand or accommodate your needs can be incredibly challenging. Whether you’re managing ADHD, autism, or other neurodiverse traits, you deserve a space where your unique experiences are recognized and valued.

    This is a place where you don’t have to mask your true self. We’ll focus on understanding your specific needs and finding practical strategies that work for you. Whether it’s dealing with sensory overload, improving communication, or managing daily challenges, I’m here to help.

    You have unique strengths and valuable perspectives. The world needs you (even if you don’t yet see why). Let’s work together to highlight your strengths and create a life where you feel empowered and comfortable in your own skin.

    Relationship Therapy

    Our relationships lie at the core of our well-being, and when they falter, every dimension of our lives suffers. Trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and the Gottman Method, I offer evidence-based approaches to help couples resolve conflicts, deepen emotional connections, and support each other through life’s transitions.

    In our sessions, we’ll create space for open communication, where each partner can express their feelings and needs without fear or judgment. We’ll work on understanding underlying emotions, strengthening your bond, and building a resilient partnership. Whether you’re facing specific issues or seeking to enhance your relationship, my goal is to help you navigate challenges and grow together.

    Individual Affair Processing

    Feeling the weight of your affair? Unsure how to move forward (reconnect vs divorce)? Infidelity and betrayals can be catalysts for profound personal growth and deeper self-awareness. Together, we will explore the nuances of what led you down this path so you can better understand yourself, heal, move past guilt and shame, and find a path forward that brings you peace.

    I specialize in helping individuals who cheated on their partner. Infidelity is not the black-and-white issue that is assumed. Your affair may be more about feeling alive again, revisiting the path not taken, mid-life challenges, existential stress, or something else. Let’s explore the deeper motivations for your affair(s) so you can better understand yourself and what you want going forward. This is a place to explore your lived experience, heal from trauma, and create the life you want—whether repairing your current relationship or parting ways. Both options can be challenging, and you could benefit from emotional support and someone to walk this journey with you.
