Does the transition into adulthood feel confusing, scary, or overwhelming? Do you feel like there's something wrong with you, or like you should have more figured out by now? Maybe you find yourself longing for support and guidance to help you get clear about who YOU really are and what YOU really want? Perhaps the friends and family in your life , whether they’re well-meaning or too busy struggling with their own challenges, aren’t showing up in a way that actually feels helpful or inspiring to you as you try to navigate these big questions? Do you feel pressured to figure out everything on your own but it all feels like too much?

Encouraging creative consciousness to address the challenges of life , we may incorporate movement, exploration of neglected parts, and investigation of the meaning of dreams, physical symptoms, and behavioral patterns.
Our highest potential as human beings is to embrace the interdependence of all beings and to value full development of potentialities and consciousness. This involves an ongoing process of healing the wounds in our psyches, fully inhabiting our bodies, and increasing our consciousness while developing a healthy relationship with those parts of us that are unconscious, and deepening our relationships with other humans as well as with all the other inhabitants of the planet we share. Each of us has our own individual potential to grow towards, and our work together can support you in this process.

Do you feel like there must be more to life ? Do you feel stuck, frustrated, detached, or uninspired? Work, caregiving, or other life stressors have you feeling burnout? Somehow, despite the persistent demands on you and your time, you feel bored. You feel drained and exhausted but can’t sleep. You are working so hard but feel increasingly cynical about the impact of your efforts. Maybe you can identify the kinds of things you'd like to do, that next professional step you’d like to take or that healthy habit you know will make you feel better, but are having trouble acting on those desires.

Sometimes hurts get stacked on each other & we assemble a life that protects against the pain, so it doesn’t ever hurt like that again. But in that process of armoring ourselves, we build a structure that also limits our capacity to enjoy life . We each have a much more unconstrained life that wants us to live it. By knowing ourselves through discovery, we work to be accountable to our own position & condition in life , forgive ourselves & others, & create a life that rewards us for this beautiful & courageous effort. Sessions will likely include mindfulness, humor, creativity, compassion, empathy, accountability, & problem-solving.

Identify and overcome life 's obstacles to have the life you want and deserve.
Humans are creatures of habit, but not all habits support us in being the best versions of ourselves. Want to feel better? Want to do better? Want to thrive? Learn tools for speaking, listening, feeling and communicating. Feel more calm and increase your sense of connection to yourself, family and friends. Learn how fear can be overcome through action and success comes from practicing being courageous.

Have you struggled to connect with yourself and your goals, the people in your life , or maybe feel disconnected from your own spiritual growth and motivation? Through examining the past we can identify why and how we get stuck in patterns that no longer serve us. Learning how to set healthy boundaries while accepting ourselves and others is the beginning of true growth. I have been coaching people for 15 years, utilizing a myriad of different approaches from mind, body, spirit modality, to looking at the shadows that inhabit our psyche's which cause our shame and doubt, clouding our purpose of being here together, and soul work.

My goal is to help clients connect with their own inner resources, strengths, and values so that they may navigate the adversities of life with the full range of possibilities available to them.
Do your sensitivities to the world and relationships sometimes feel like more of a burden than a blessing? Do you want to get into better relationship with yourself and your body? Maybe you are experiencing a difficult life transition or wrestling with pain, fear, or despair at the state of your life or the world. Perhaps you want to explore parts of yourself that have previously been held silent by anxieties or conditioning. If so, I would be a great fit for you!

Counseling may take different forms depending on whether you’re dealing with a significant life transition, loss, or have been struggling with symptoms of depression or anxiety. As a strengths-based counselor, I believe we have an inner compass that can guide us, with support, toward positive change. Bringing years of coaching experience to counseling, I hold a safe place for you to explore your internal life as well as your natural ability to shine in activities and relationships. Positive connection with others is how we discover---or rediscover---a place of safety and wholeness in our lives.

Life can be hard but I'm guessing you already knew that.  All the hard stuff can leave us feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, or sad. Sometimes life 's challenges become too difficult to overcome alone. Finding a safe and collaborative place to explore and address what is troubling you is the first step toward healing.  Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, or challenges within a relationship. While there are no guarantees of what you will experience in therapy, research shows that therapy helps people. It works. Psychotherapy can elevate feelings of self worth, purpose, and improve your overall quality of life .

Never have life challenges been as great as now for you and your future. For we must improve relations with each other and our planet or perish. As a man you may feel frustrated in either work or intimate relationships or both. Yet the personal skills needed for work are usually opposite from those for intimacy. There seems to be no way to the success you yearn for. As a woman you may cope with anxiety or depression and succeed at friendship. Yet coupling has meant losing track of yourself, and good men seem to be hard to find. The way forward involves increasing our emotional skills and love for ourselves, others and our planet.
