I need help with

Anxiety and Panic
Do you ever wish you could turn your mind off? Are you feeling stressed? Sometimes people can feel anxious and panicky, with a rapid heartbeat, sweaty palms, racing thoughts, shaking, or shallowness of breath. Feelings of anxiety and panic can upset us and distract us from living the life we want. I can help by teaching you how to calm yourself down, how to manage anxious feelings, and get to the underlying causes of anxiousness.

Depression and Sadness
Do you sometimes feel like what’s the point of even getting out of bed? Sometimes people can fee depressed, apathetic, worthless, or disinterested in activities they used to enjoy. I can help by teaching you how to take care of yourself, how to manage your sad feelings, and develop some self care strategies. Sometimes depression can mask underlying feelings of anger or rage, and I can help you understand where these feelings are coming from and how to overcome them.

Eating Disorders
Do you wonder if your relationship with food is a bit strange? Some people binge eat, or mindlessly eat, over eat, or under eat. How did our relationship with food become so complicated? I can help by teaching you new habits, and changing your relationship with food from a contentious one to a healthy one. Plus we can explore your life-long relationship with food and understand where it took a turn for the worse, and why.

Gender Issues
Are you looking for a good gender therapist? Are you considering transitioning but are unsure where to start? Or perhaps you are gender queer and are feeling frustrated because the world can make you feel wrong, every day and every where? Well, you aren’t wrong, and you know yourself better than anyone else. You have the right to a thriving life despite feelings of gender dysphoria. I can help you tackle the obstacles that the world puts in front of you to live a better, more fulfilling life.

Post-traumatic Stress
Are past traumatic events causing you stress today? Do you feel in a state of hyper-vigilance, constantly aware of everything around you that might go wrong? Or perhaps you are having nightmares and flashbacks that make daily living difficult? In addition to my other training, I am a certified clinical trauma professional, and I can help you to develop self-soothing strategies to bring more calm and confidence to your life. We can also tackle the traumatic events in a safe and caring environment so that you can transform your post-traumatic stress to post-traumatic growth.

Relationships
Are you feeling betrayed? Have trust and communication broken down in your relationship? Are you wondering if the relationship will survive?  Relationships can be tricky, frustrating, and irritating, but they can also be exhilarating, supportive, and loving. How can we learn from our relationships and build mutually rewarding, life-long love affairs? I can help partners to cultivate a positive, intimate relationship that supports each person’s mutual development, and gets your relationship back on a long-term trajectory.

Verbal and Sexual Abuse, Violence, Sexual Assault
Have you experienced violence, assault, or abuse? Do you wonder what consent actually means? Have you been abused by someone close to you? Sometimes hurt people can hurt people, as I believe that pain which is not transformed, will be transferred. You can stop the cycle of abuse and violence, and heal from the wounds of your past. I can help you learn to take care of yourself and live without regrets, transforming your future by healing past wounds.
