The sun goes down and you're desperate for sleep. Unfortunately, this is when your thoughts speed up. You're constantly thinking. You think about how much you think. Your mind replays the day's interactions with others, criticizing yourself, and reflecting on how people have hurt you. You're desperate for a break from the constant anxiety, but don't know how to find the peace that you want so badly.

I understand that life's transitions often come with the obvious changes in ones perspective, in ones relationships, and in ones lifestyle, but transitions also come with more hidden emotional changes. These usually surface as sleepless nights, fights with people you care about, mood instability, and a feeling of sadness or dissatisfaction with life. On your own, it is difficult to untangle the complex puzzle that underlies these ongoing issues and acknowledge these emotional changes. Together we can uncover the root of your emotional challenges using emotionally focused therapy in a compassionate and supportive environment.

Therapy is a gift of time and of a safe, supportive space for self-examination. Therapy provides awareness of the choice to shape our lives in meaningful ways. It's a collaborative process between client and therapist facilitating personal growth through exploration of the client's unique beliefs, feelings and behaviors. Pasts influence present realities in ways that are often outside of our awareness, and thus have a profound impact on how we view ourselves, connections to others, and place in the world. Losses and changes create disillusionment and helplessness if not processed to allow forward movement and renewed meaning.

We all face conflicts that at times become “too much.” When we feel overwhelmed there’s a natural tendency to want to restore balance in ourselves and our lives. Any conflict—in love, work, body image, physical symptoms—can lead to anxiety, shame and a sense of "going through the motions." Whether you’re dealing with current or long-standing difficulties, there are effective ways to understand and soften painful feelings. Life can be better when you open to new thinking, curb negativity and break repetitive cycles; you become kinder to yourself. You can find your own voice.

Are you struggling with a traumatic experience, unsure how to resolve its effect on your life? Looking to improve a relationship? Maybe, like most parents, you want the best for your child and seek a way to give them a little help. Or perhaps you want to make a change, so you're exploring why you think and behave as you do. People seek therapy for many reasons, but almost everyone does so to relieve some kind of pain. I believe relief and healing can be found through the therapeutic relationship.

The challenges of growing up in today's rapidly changing society are enormous. Children need to be equipped with skills for survival and growth that were never before imagined. I focus on teaching self-healing and self-control techniques that empower youth to develop the emotional skills necessary for a happy and successful life and realize their potential throughout their lifetime. Using the positive power of their imagination, children learn to reduce stress, deal effectively with anger and frustration, reduce stomachaches, headaches, and tics, cope with divorce and death, reduce parental and sibling conflicts, increase concentration, sleep peacefully, and more.
