Life's journey can sometimes be frightening and confusing, but you don't have to walk that path alone. Therapy can help to ground you in your experiences while you explore the twists and turns which can make life so difficult yet so exciting.

Are you feeling stuck? Overwhelmed? Unhappy? Feeling like the same issues keep showing up, over and over? Do the same things go wrong in your life again and again? Do your troubles seem to repeat? Do you feel alone? Unsatisfied? Like nobody understands you? Somehow, inside, you know what the problem is. You know it well. You've lived with it a long time. It keeps you from enjoying life, but you can't seem to shake it. Or are these feelings new? Have you recently experienced receiving jolting news and aren't sure how you feel or how to react? 

Many of my clients say they have difficulty in their relationships, their spirituality, their self image as a result of anger, anxiety or depression. These feelings manifest in a variety of ways, some of which may be seen as addictive behaviors or ways of thinking. They may be symptoms of old wounds or past trauma.

I have a deep capacity to hold these feelings in a safe and non-judgmental way, and together we will work to help you learn new ways to diminish and expel anger, anxiety and depression. 

We work in ways which complement your goals and personality, ranging from client-centered empathetic listening, to a more directive therapy approach, as well as mindfulness and hypnotherapy. In my work with clients I utilize a holistic therapy framework, which looks at the primary parts of a person and how they relate to one another. These primary parts are the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects, which make up the whole person.

Therapy can help you achieve understanding and give rise to self growth.. I work collaboratively with you to gain a sense of control over what is holding you back from your potential to be fully involved in life. I provide a therapeutic atmosphere of safety and respect - devoid of judgment. Therapy can provide a unique experience unlike any other, one in which you are heard and can learn.
