"We will take a deep look at troublesome symptoms like depression, anxiety, trauma, interpersonal conflicts, and chronic health issues. In order to make real changes to your life, we will define habitual coping patterns that are built into your mind and body, namely your unique defensive structure, and slowly uncover difficult past events and feelings that you buried to survive. These character aspects are now blocking your healthy self-expressions and authentic self. Eventually your growing self-awareness and the release of long-held emotions will take you to a new life phase."

I create a facilitative environment where your thoughts and feelings can be safely explored. Through this process you and I will learn about your inner world and how your mind works. Emotional growth occurs when we gain new perspectives on ourselves and our relationships.

Non-judgment and taking a strengths perspective are fundamental components of my work. There are many skills and tools I can teach you, though perhaps most important of all is looking together at how you think about yourself and your struggle.
