It can feel very isolating to look in the mirror and not recognize the face staring back at you. Sometimes, you can feel so lost that you forget where your journey first began. Or perhaps, you never had the time to figure out the direction you wanted to go. Stress, loneliness, sadness, and pain have become your companions, and while you can feel your feet on the ground, more often than not, you find your heart and mind drifting elsewhere.
Whether you are in the midst of a painful experience or have been fighting to survive for years, there is more to your life than hardship. There is hope. There is healing. And there is purpose.
With professional training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, trauma therapy and memory reconsolidation, I offer guidance to individuals struggling through confusing life transitions, such as the end of a relationship, a difficult loss or a career change. By working through difficult thoughts and emotions, you can gain a greater understanding of your self identity and honest potential.
I hold a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Arizona State University and seek to approach therapy collaboratively and compassionately with my clients. By offering you a sense of empowerment and exploring together things that cause you to feel trapped, we are able to uncover what is hurting you or holding you back.
I believe the most effective route to change is through connection—both with others, but more importantly, with ourselves. By validating your experiences and finding meaning, you can find balance and resilience.
