Best Self-Help Advice

Be gentle with yourself. On the road to recovery, from addictions, from trauma, or just the craziness of our lives- be gentle with yourself– remember it is a process. Often, the most loving thing for yourself is to allow your feelings to bubble up and ask for help from others when you need it. Allow others to be there for you- to problem solve, affirm, or just care, and reciprocate in return. Little by little, you will heal, and miracles will happen in your world. Your thoughts will feel more rational, your feelings more soothed, and that glimmer of inner strength that has always been in you will emerge once again.

#1 Self-Care Habit

Meditation, meditation, meditation! Finding inner stillness is a journey but pays so many dividends. You begin to tap into an inner source of strength, clarity, and peace.

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.” — Helen Keller
I assist clients struggling with addictions, feeling stuck during transition periods, and those experiencing anxiety, depression, and other issues that take away from psychological well-being. You do not have to feel alone. I have extensive experience with adolescents, college-aged and young adults. I have helped individuals with anxiety, adjustment concerns, and negative consequences of substance use. I also like to focus on overcoming your obstacles related to relationship-building, self-discovery, and helping you achieve a life congruent with your values.

My main goal for you, no matter your background, is to help you feel as comfortable and empowered as possible to achieve your goals during therapy. I ascribe to a warm, Person-Centered, Strengths-Based, Motivational Interviewing approach, with aspects of Solution-Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral approaches.

I am open to working with all backgrounds and am respectful of your current life journey. I have experience with the LGBTQIA+ communities and underserved populations. If you think I would be a good fit, I would love to hear from you! Book online today to schedule your first appointment with me!
