Anxiety

There is a worrier in all of our brains that is healthy and a hero for us (she stops us getting hit by a bus after all) but for some of us, this worrier gets out of control.  We can become obsessive in our thoughts and spend much of our life feeling like something bad is about to happen, feeling like we must do something to stop bad things from happening or feeling gross in our chest and stomach as the anxiety overwhelms us. We want to help you create a more cooperative relationship with this part of yourself. One in which you can feel more in control, more calm, more centered and more creative.

Depression

"Pain is part of life but suffering doesn't have to be." - unknown.  When we experience depression we often can't think straight, can't move without pain and feel separate from the flow of life.  We want to help you find an end to your suffering and to find a way to bring compassion to yourself.  We often work with people who want to break free of their depression without medication but we are also open to working with your psychiatrist to coordinate care if you do feel that medication is a good step for you in your process.

Grief

When we experience a loss we feel lost ourselves.  Whether you have experienced a recent loss or have experienced a loss long ago we would like to offer a space where it is safe to let go and feel the grief.  The process of letting go of a loved one or of a dream can be a process that is longer and more circuited than we expect.  We want to walk with you through your process and offer you a kind hand, a kind ear, a kind witness in the service of your healing.

Life Transitions

Whether you are graduating from college or grad school, making a midlife career change, considering a move or thinking about ending a long term relationship, changes like this can be difficult.  "What is next for me?" "Am I really going to be able to do this?" We won't be telling you where to go but instead want to help you answer your own questions. Here are links to therapists who work with life transitions:

Relationships

Many of us are struggling to find the kind of relationship we want or are feeling stuck about a relationship that we are currently in and not sure that we want to do couples therapy. We want to help you define what you want, figure out what internal impediments may be standing in your way to getting that and to discovering how you can get your needs met in a variety of healthy ways. Here are links to our therapists who work with relationships:
