Life can be challenging. It holds both positive experiences and negative ones. One thing that I know for certain is that the hard times don’t last. They are moments and events in our lives that sometimes feel overwhelming. I’m a fighter. I never give up and continue to believe In brighter days. My optimism about life’s challenges and working through them spill over into my treatment philosophy. I encourage myself so therefore I encourage others.
Depression, stress and anxiety appear to be huge issues in our society. Many people are struggling with these issues. I seek out trainings and workshops to learn more about these issues and work to stay well prepared.
I know that the thought of therapy can be frightening. I have seen a therapist in the past and I know how vulnerable one can feel talking to a stranger. There is no judgement or assumptions. We will simply talk and determine together the direction that your sessions should go in. I am a very relaxed person and the atmosphere will be friendly and inviting.
Anxiety can mean nervousness, worry, or self-doubt. Anxiety disorder is a mental health disorder that entails excessive, repeated bouts of worry, anxiety, and/or fear.
Familial relationships can be the source of stress and emotional pain, even in the healthiest of situations. Painful interactions can range from irritation to resentment and lead to feelings of guilt, disappointment, and anger.
Gender identity & transgender health
Transgender or gender non-confirming people experience the same mental health issues as anyone else. For some, however, social stigma, discrimination, oppression and the effort of understanding one’s authentic self can lead to anxiety or depression.
Coping skills are tools and techniques one can learn, practice, and use to handle difficult emotions, decrease stress, and establish or maintain a sense of internal order.

Self-esteem is the degree to which a person feels confident, valuable, and worthy of respect. Feeling low self-esteem can influence overall well-being and be linked to anxiety and/or depression.

Challenges around race and cultural identity vary enormously, including issues related to discrimination, racism, and intergenerational trauma.
