I also work with couples to resolve interpersonal difficulties.
Living one's life with courage, insight and vitality is not always easy. Relationships can be difficult, disappointing or elusive. Families and careers can be demanding and exhausting. Transitions arrive and losses mount up. Anxiety, depression, self-doubt and low motivation may arise amidst the stress.

Sometimes in life we can feel lost, misguided, anxious, stuck or even desperate. We find ourselves repeating patterns, doing the same things over and over again, coming up short of opportunities and solutions in regard to our problems. Often times, this is due to limited belief systems instilled upon us, or through the experience of fears, injustice and a need to simply catch our breath. Are you ready to focus on growth, health, fulfillment and recognizing your higher purpose and true potential? Let's release these perceived limitations, ignite passion, heal old wounds, fulfill the option of being true to self and make that change.
