    “How can I be substantial if I do not cast a shadow? I must have a dark side also if I am to be whole.”- C.G. Jung

    In this increasingly “good vibes only,” culture, we might feel a need to hide our dark or shadow sides: feeling broken, shameful, sad, unlovable, or just… off. 

    These split-off parts create a challenge: the way you have been navigating life no longer works, but you’re not sure how to go about making a change on your own. I’m glad you are here.

    You might find yourself attempting to ignore uncomfortable feelings of inadequacy, shame, sadness, or feeling stuck. You might be engaging in what Anna Freud described as “turning against the self” in order to ignore these painful feelings, or to accommodate others.

    Though these habits were at one time useful for you, they have now become destructive and outdated. They may be getting in the way of your relationships, career, school, or other important parts of your life.

    If this sounds familiar, therapy may be helpful. As a psychotherapist, I offer a warm, conversational, and collaborative approach to begin exploring the more difficult parts of your life experience that are demanding to be heard. I will be here with you as we start to listen to the hidden parts of yourself, and offer a safe space to start letting go, in order to make room for happiness, fulfillment, and freedom. I look forward to walking this path with you.
