Seeking therapy is a healthy form of self-care. If you have been thinking, "maybe it's time to talk with someone", I encourage you to validate your intuition, and make the call, because you are worth it. I believe, we are all experts of ourselves with an innate power source that allows us to deal with life's issues. However, when emotions become dysregulated, and life begins to feel unmanagable, over time, the effects will deeply impact a person's overall well-being. Whatever challenges you may be currently facing, you do not have to work through them alone.

As emotional healing takes place, we awaken to ourselves, to others, to our lives. My work initially involves setting up an environment of safety and trust. In this surround, challenges from the past and present can be unearthed, explored and used to our advantage. Growth is born of struggle, not comfort. Building a story of your experiences, helps one find continuity and purpose in life. I am present, listening and feeling as our work unfolds. I challenge and confront but also validate one's experiences and emotional responses to those experiences. Being seen, heard and understood begets healing.

My greatest strength and professional interest as a therapist is working in-depth with adults from an interpersonal, psycho-dynamic perspective assisting men and women to gain insight and understanding of how their early relationships and inner emotional experiences have influenced relational patterns which impact them today. I assist people in making self-determined changes in their lives in the areas of thinking, feeling and behaving: the three primary components of the human being and how each is expressed and manifested in relationship to others. Spirituality is supported and integrated as my clients are personally inclined.

Being able to move through new positive changes with out the stress and worry about how you will be perceived seems like an impossible task, but it is possible.
