Are you a people-pleaser and are scared of disappointing others? Perhaps you are so hard on yourself that it is difficult to overcome even minor mistakes. You feel so deeply wounded & have been for some time. Trying to increase that self-esteem although continuing to fall short. You often experience self-doubt yet desire to believe in yourself. Let's talk. It isn't easy seeking out support, but you did it. Everyone at some point in life experiences difficulty and hardship.

Suffering is an inherent part of the human experience. In the course of a lifetime, crises happen, unpredictable challenges arise, and in response we develop habit patterns that are often protective but also inhibit our growth and freedom. Therapy will help clear the path so that you can see a way forward. I walk that path with you and provide a container for self-exploration and inquiry. I work with mood disturbances, trauma, attachment issues, self-esteem, and spiritual emergence. Depth therapy is a journey that will take you into yourself and lead you back to yourself while being witnessed by a safe, compassionate presence.

Do you tend to put others' needs before your own? Struggle to speak up for yourself in your relationships? If so, you may have an overactive “people pleasing” part. You're willing to go above and beyond for others, but self-care feels foreign. You hide your vulnerability to stay strong for others and feel uncomfortable reaching out for help. Deep down, you struggle with self-esteem, and tend to feel inadequate, despite having a lot to be proud of. You just want people to like you, but you feel you have to earn it. You yearn to feel unconditionally accepted and valued, and to feel entitled to self-advocacy and healthy boundaries.

We humans suffer because we don’t get what we want and get what we don’t want. Most of us want to find a quick cure to our emotional pain. Quick cures sedate the pain which is the source of Wisdom, Compassion, Understanding and Real Love. My approach is for the person who wants to answer the timeless questions of: “Who am I?”, “Where did I come from?”, “Where am I going?” from their own depths and to their full understanding. It is in this journey, through self-inquiry, that they become happier, wiser and more compassionate.

My clients are just like you - to the outsider they appear like they have it all together. But on the inside something feels stuck, or at least worth exploring. I believe we are all trying our best to navigate the journey of life with the only strategies we know. Sometimes those ways work well for us, and other times they don’t. I am passionate about issues surrounding parenting, life transitions, emotional intelligence, vocation and purpose, and coping mechanisms. I particularly enjoy being a listening ear for fellow dads who try everyday to be the best dad they can be.
