Perhaps some of the following rings a bell:

Every day you find yourself chronically weighed down by feelings of anxiety, frustration, and dejection.

People may notice you’re struggling but it doesn’t feel like there’s anyone you can talk to who is really going to get it and be able to help. You worry that without intervention you will always have these same struggles. You have some skepticism about whether therapy can really help, but feel out of other options and that you can’t keep living like this.

It’s possible to feel better.

Many studies have shown the benefits of psychotherapy, and I have witnessed firsthand many people overcome their challenges to feel greater purpose, vitality and joyfulness. I draw on proven methods to help you develop the insight, coping skills, and resilience needed to thrive.

Finding a good fit with your therapist is important.

Anger can get out of control, damaging relationships and more. Therapy can help you understand the sources of your anger so that you can better manage them, and also help to resolve issues that lead to intense bouts of anger.


Grieving is an intense experience that can be both overwhelming and disorienting. Getting support while grieving can be critical to being able to both honor the person we have lost while also being able to move forward in our lives.

When you feel like you have to be perfect in order to avoid being inadequate, procrastination sets in and it becomes difficult to stay on top of responsibilities. Treatment can assist you in breaking out of a perfectionist mindset so that you can spend less time worrying and more time accomplishing your goals.
