Individual Therapy

Counseling for relationship issues, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, spirituality and growth.

Counseling for relationship issues, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, spirituality and growth.

I see individuals for a variety of reasons. Often there is a triggering event, like a break up, death, illness or trouble at work. Sometimes there are long-standing unsettled feelings about life including anxiety, depression, or feeling conflicted, lost or stuck.  I provide a safe and nurturing place to support you through your challenges while also recognizing and identifying your strengths. My approach is warm, engaged, inquisitive and intuitive, and
I offer practical tools and information. Below
are some common themes that arise in my
work with clients.

  • Believing you are unlovable or not good enough
