Everything is stressful and you feel powered down by the confusion, responsibilities and commitments. Something has got to give! Fortunately pain is an excellent teacher precisely because it gets our attention. I assure you the struggle you're experiencing now is guiding you. Struggle is a bonafide indication of real and important progress. If you're trying to gain traction, but don't remember how, I am here to help you move forward and heal from within. "

"I work with individuals and couples who find difficulties with their interpersonal relationships. Trauma, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem can keep you stuck in limiting patterns. As a massage therapist for the past 23 years, I've noticed how people hold patterns of pain, trauma, and negative energy in their bodies. Now as a therapist I help people who may be carrying the weight of their past, feel their life is out of balance, or who are not living up to their full potential. If you'd like to relate better to those around you, learn new skills to change behaviors, and improve your overall wellness I can help. "

Is it keeping you from enjoying life outside of work? Maybe stress is keeping you from sleeping. Your anxiety is relentless and exhausting. Perhaps a past sexual assault is making it difficult to have the healthy relationship you crave. It is making it hard to trust yourself and others. Or maybe you just can't get over that break-up.

The goal is to find more satisfying relationships and fulfilling ways of being in the world. I work primarily from an Emotion-focused therapy (EFT) framework, although I have been trained in a variety of different psychotherapeutic methods. EFT is an empirically-supported approach that is flexible in that it allows the integration of other methods and techniques when necessary."

As a result, our bodies, spirit &brains are suffering; we are not machines meant to be tied down to a job for the mere purpose of paying bills until we die.
