Have you been suddenly hit with overwhelming fear, worry, anxiety, leaving you feeling out of control? Are you feeling sad and lonely but you are too ashamed or reluctant to tell anyone about it? These experiences can leave a person feeling helpless and hopeless. There are ways to alleviate these intense feelings. There are many mental health professionals from whom to choose, but what really matters now is, “Who can help me?” Entering the psychotherapeutic process may seem confusing, even frightening. In an empathic and safe environment, I help each client understand how their past affects their present so that they may achieve the desired change in their life.
"Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives."
- Bessel van der Kolk, M.D.
