‘Hearts are not the burdens they carry; but the burdens they carry can drive their extremes' (Richard Schwartz, 2018). There are times when we feel truly burdened: exhausted, confused, immobilized, distressed, anxious, in relationship discord or overwhelmed. As challenging as these experiences can be, we can grow our strength and grow our courage in our willingness to approach them. I work with clients to assist in living with more calm, courage, compassion, meaning, and deep connection.

At some point, we all hit a wall where self-help books and call-in therapy radio shows are no longer enough. Whether you are finding your way through grief over the loss of a loved one, experiencing a transition in your life, struggling in relationship or career, there is no reason why you have to go it alone. Believing a counselor must work on healing their own issues first, I have worked thru my own struggles in all of these areas. As a result I bring that learning to help many others.

By addressing troubling thoughts and feelings, self-sabotaging behaviors, and traumas, life can be made more manageable, productive, and fulfilling. Feelings such as grief, shame, anxiety, sadness, and anger often signal that something needs to change. Listening to and working with these feelings—some that consume us and others that gently nudge us—can move us forward. Through this, we sometimes discover that our everyday dilemmas are part of larger patterns waiting to be resolved as a whole.
