“Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.” – Buddha

Becoming a mom, starting a new career, entering adulthood, losing a loved one. These major life events are often more challenging than we expect. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed, sad, anxious or a million other emotions and for past traumas to resurface as you grapple with these feelings. And it’s normal to need help.

Whether you are new to therapy or a “veteran” to the process, asking for help when in need is courageous. It is inherent strengths like courage that will set the foundation for our work together. You already have the tools. I will help you realize and utilize what’s already within.
