Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed.

According to Mental Health America (AMA), before COVID-19, data shows that over the past 3 years there has been a steady increase in the number of youth and adults struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms and there continues to be an unmet need for individuals to receive proper care. AMA states, since the onset of COVID-19, the number of people looking for mental health services has “skyrocketed.” This past year has been painful for so many on so many different levels. If you're seeking balance amidst a myriad of uncertainties, let's connect. Therapy is not just another obligation. It's a gift to yourself and you deserve it!

If you are having the same arguments over and over again, you are not alone. I will be with you every step of the way. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples to interrupt repetitive Cycles where one person reaches out in frustration, causing their partner to withdraw and hide out. Couple Therapy doesn't have to be torture, and there doesn't have to be a "bad guy". I have helped couples with a range of issues from Domestic Abuse to infidelity to communication issues. I even use humor sometimes, but we don't waste a moment! I welcome couples who have been in couple therapy before and have almost given up.

If you're overwhelmed, anxious, or feel you've lost your way, therapy can help. You can take your power back. I help people who have experienced trauma and/or stress regain control of their lives. Extreme stress (trauma) can make it hard to cope and move past the experience. Circumstances like personal crisis, injury/pain (physical and emotional), and helplessness make it feel difficult to move forward. You've survived the traumatic event; you can heal and improve your life! I can walk with you so you're not alone.

I am accepting new cIients. I believe we all have times in our lives when we can become overwhelmed and may need help from another person. If this is your first time seeking help, it can be intimidating to choose a therapist and begin the journey to healing. My goal is to help you explore challenging areas of your life, examine relationships, and support life transitions. I work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, substance abuse and life transitions. No matter where you find yourself in your life journey, I promise you will be welcomed and provided with compassionate support.

You perceive that others seem to have their lives together, although, in all of your rich internal experience, you haven’t been able to, just yet, put all of the pieces together. You may feel alone, experience anxiety, depression, or engage in compulsive behaviors you just can’t manage to quit.

At times life feels paralyzing and pleasure feels out of reach? I believe that listening more deeply to the body and mind is a critical ingredient for lasting change and finding more control in your life.

We humans are wired for contact and connection. Yet sometimes we don't know how to develop the needed connections; relationship building and managing one’s life effectively can thus be both terrifying and exhilarating . Lack of healthy support and resultant traumas leave us depressed, anxious, isolated, or insecure, leading to addictions, obsessions and compulsions, poor communication, relationship difficulties, or general dis-ease in one’s life. Yet healing is possible, and finding a therapist with whom you resonate is crucial.

Or why you think thoughts, over and over again, that aren't productive? Do you experience fear or anxiety for no obvious reason? Or depression? Have you questioned whether you are lacking in some attribute that other people have, like self-control or motivation, that makes it easier for them to avoid negative actions and thoughts and simply enjoy life more? It can be painful to contemplate these things, particularly if it makes us feel there is something wrong with us at a core level.

Do you believe there is something terribly wrong with you and you don't understand where it is coming from? Transactional Analysis shows us our personality is formed by age six where the combination of the messages we receive from our parents and how we learned to adapt to those messages form our life script, or pattern of behavior we repeat to get our needs met. The problem occurs when we grow up and the scripted behaviors no longer meet our adult needs, limiting our experiences in life. The script can be changed in order to adjust to our adult needs and desires. I can facilitate this process using Redecision Therapy.
