"My clients are most often dealing with communication concerns, issues of intimacy and complications related to life changes. When traumatic events impact their daily lives, they may seek assistance. Occasionally couples and families experiencing stress in their relationships may need an objective listener and guide to help them figure out how to reestablish balance. With the many demands of life and work, we work together to find pleasure in their families and for parents to reinstate parental authority within the family structure."

"Within each of us exists the potential to feel good about ourselves, our relationships and our work. Accessing this potential, tapping into it and learning to apply it generously to everyday life can lead to great success and fulfillment in all of these areas. I collaborate with my clients to identify and address the things blocking their ability to have a true and lasting sense of well being-- depression, stress, low self esteem, past trauma, self defeating patterns and toxic relationships. Together we work actively on transforming these obstacles into self knowledge and new, positive behaviors."

"Tired of feeling down, anxious, or simply not your best? Ready to do more than just talk about it? If so, body oriented therapy may be for you. With body oriented therapy, we will explore not only your thoughts and emotions, but also the physical sensations, postures, and gestures that come with them. This is important because tuning into your body can help you understand your feelings, thoughts, and life experiences more deeply. This understanding can support you in being the person you want to be and creating the life you want to have. The first step to change is becoming aware of how you are feeling, thinking, and being now. "
