Everyone goes through challenging times in their life and it's not always easy to cope with the stress. Work life balance, job related stress, and managing family responsibilities are just some of the things that can throw us off kilter. Sometimes our interpersonal relationships can suffer because we are not taking the time to invest in ourselves. It's in these times that it's important to take a step back and redefine our priorities and follow through on a plan of personal growth that is congruent with our current lives.

Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.
