Are you finding yourself caught in self defeating patterns? Are you anxious or depressed and don't know why? Maybe you are hard on yourself in ways you aren't to others. Or, do you find yourself overly critical of others? Do you wish you were happier, more at peace? We all try and want to live at our best, but many of us find ourselves pulled back into old patterns before we recognize our actions. We cope in many different ways or develop symptoms that are often self destructive. Why do we do this?

Trying to make something work by pretending to feel, think or act in ways that go against how you really feel is exhausting to the body, mind and your spirit. This realization can feel very uncomfortable. However, it is the door to finding both your aliveness and yourself as you investigate what you really feel and think about the situations that are distressing in yourself, family and work situations. I'd like to help you make the actual changes that you need to make. I help you find and focus on what is actually alive in you.
