About

OOO 6/30-8/1. Do you feel like you keep making the same mistakes in your dating relationships? Do you find that when you finally get the committed relationship you thought you wanted, you feel insecure in ways you didn't expect? Everything we feel and react to is sparked by our interpersonal interactions. When those interactions cause self-defeating reactions, you can feel insecure, lonely, and defeated. I want to help you change your patterns. I help people calm the chaos in their mind and their life. You will learn that you can manage your life (relationships, family, career) with strength and confidence.
I bring the gifts of my life experience with trauma and loss, as well as my professional training to the work I do with my clients. I am going to support you as I gently (or sometimes not-so-gently) prompt you to shake up what you know about yourself in order to make the changes you have wanted for so long. This is a collaborative process.
Our work will include developing healthy skills and working through emotional areas where you feel blocked. Where is the emotional chaos coming from in your life? I want to help you incorporate the gifts of your pain into a new perspective of yourself. One that you love and accept without judgment. Call today for a quick consult to get started.
