It can be overwhelming to begin the process of therapy and takes courage to make that first contact. OFFERING VIDEO SESSIONS BECAUSE OF COVID 19. As your therapist I will engage you in becoming comfortable exploring your inner self and learning where do you get stuck and what increases your satisfaction in life. Using a compassionate and collaborative approach, we will develop a plan that addresses your issues. You will learn to look in the mirror and not the magnifying glass to improve both your self image and relationships with others. You will also learn how to set boundaries; this reduces anger and increases self esteem.

I have a unique ability to connect with people. Sometimes there are people that have a hard time clarifying what their thoughts and feelings are. They get confused. They hear voices in their head. They think people are making fun of them because they are born different. It can be really hard for Their own families to help. I help their families achieve common ground . Teenagers know I am real even if I tell them things they don’t want to hear. I have assisted many young adults make the difficult transition to adulthood. Older adults know that I want to hear about their life and assist them with the challenges of getting old.

Life is like a book - some chapters are more emotional than others while others are more challenging to get through. Different life events or situations can cause shorter or longer chapters. And for working professionals, it seems like the everyday routine is one long overwhelming book. The need to manage so much responsibility, family, relationships, finances, professional and personal goals, and possible parenting can often be overwhelming.

Stepping into your truth can be frightening, mixed with feelings of doubt which may cause you to retreat and stay quiet. There is no right way to uncover emotions that may be blocking you from living a fulfilled life. Everyone has stories to tell, unique, inspiring, challenging and sometimes devastating. The shocking thing is that many people walk through life without ever sharing these life events and so often with trauma, the guilt and shame can stop you from telling anyone.

Life is full of difficult choices and complicated circumstances but it is meant to be active, happy and full. Many people find themselves living a life of quiet desperation instead of the life they want. This can be because of genetic vulnerabilities, a childhood that was not sensitive to what you needed in specific developmental stages, or choices that have not supported you. Instead of trying harder at the same old solutions, I help you to shift your level of functioning and satisfaction. Research supports rewiring the neural networks in our brain to bring real and lasting change. I provide a warm, safe place to change.
