I have had the pleasure of working with all age groups for over 30 years. Need help with your kids? Parenting education and training are important issues in my practice. In general, important goals in therapy include learning how to make the best decisions for oneself in day-to-day life and in developing basic problem solving strategies. Often, significant change can be made simply through the process of education and awareness, offered in a caring and compassionate environment. I use EFT in my practice to maximize symptom relief and minimize the need for extended time in therapy.

Often, it’s too much to think, be in your head and deal with toxic relationships. Then, in thinking or feeling, or a pattern of behavior or choices that are ultimately harmful. This can lead to a feeling of heaviness and oppression about the future, allow yourself the freedom to imagine a future filled with possibilities and opportunities. I will help you unpack the history of the problematic behavior and help you see how you actually feel about it. I intend to help you better understand the motivation underneath the patterns of thinking and behaviors that make you feel trapped and overwhelmed.

Life can be challenging. Current world events may be adding to your daily life stresses and bring up feelings of hopelessness, fear, anger, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, feeling overwhelmed and/or stuck. Additionally, we may carry the weight of unprocessed trauma that can affect our daily ability to function as well as how we interact in our relationships. Some common symptoms of unprocessed trauma include emotional dysregulation, low self worth, lack of insight, and people pleasing tendencies. We may find it difficult to connect with others, want to isolate, or be disappointed in our ability to show up how we want to.

My view of the human condition stems from a Zen concept of "suffering" and "transience of life." I believe that suffering is an inescapable human condition and yet a basis for growth. We all go through the phrases where we feel lost, helpless, or defeated by life challenges erroneously believing suffering will never end. In these moments, therapy can help. As a therapist, I regard my role as a guide in your life journey just like the Sherpas for climbers in the Himalayas. The goal of therapy is to get mobilized, explore the meaning and purpose of your life, and eventually get back on track to pursue what you truly value in life.

Not Accepting New Clients at this time - - Trying to balance all of the demands and challenges in our lives can be overwhelming! We've all been in a life situation where we have felt stuck or struggled with feelings that seem insurmountable. Sometimes we know what’s wrong and other times we just have the sense that something isn't "right". Finding a therapist to help you understand more clearly what’s going on can help you to learn to make the choices that will help you move forward.
