"In these times, we may lose our sense of meaning and direction. Stress can trigger new trauma, while activating old traumas.

Do you feel trapped in patterns that don't reflect who you are becoming? For 20+ years, I have aided individuals in resolving crises and discovering new meaning and direction. In a safe environment, using a 3 tiered depth approach, we uncover your soul's wisdom for healing and renewal."

"As I see it, the primary role of a counselor is to serve as a mirror to help reveal what the client hasn't yet been able to see-especially those patterns of relating to self, others, and the environment that might be causing suffering. At the same time, the counselor is there to reflect, affirm, and strengthen the client's unique gifts and talents.One of the biggest impediments to healing, growth, and creativity is shame. To help clients move through this debilitating emotion, I use a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, and other healing modalities."

"I think we've all been there: knowing something needs to change but not sure what to do or which way to go. Difficult times can overwhelm a person's ability to move forward in life. You may feel stuck, and not sure why. Relationships may not be going well, whether with a spouse/partner or friends and coworkers. Often, people find themselves in trouble with substance use, in an unhealthy attempt to cope that just makes things worse in the long run. Sometimes only a few sessions with a therapist can provide clarity and sense of relief."

"Some people pursue therapy because they love personal growth and self-exploration, but many of us come to therapy as a last resort or because our current experience is no longer tolerable. Even when we're suffering however, change can feel intimidating or unattainable. It can feel safer to remain in the discomfort of habitual patterns and experiences than to take a leap of faith into the unknown. It takes courage to pursue change, but if you are reading this, even if you are scared or doubtful, you have the courage required to heal and I am here to help."
